The Island of Dhanaptir
AUTHOR : Amar Mitra TRANSLATED BY: Jhimli Mukherjee
GENRE : Translation, Bengali to English
QUICK TAKE: The Island of Dhanapatir combines the elements of myth, allegory and magic realism with a folklore of rare beauty. It is the story of the Sunderbans which have continuously been acquired and ravaged those unmindful of all ecological warnings
The island came out of the golden pot of Ma Kamala, which she gave to the pirate Pedru to rule. However, there are mythical and mystical elements to the story about how Dhanapati is not only the village headman but also the giant tortoise of lore that swam in from depths of the oceans and fell asleep here to be seen when the waters recede in the winter months. Dhanapati was the last Pedru, but he was now old and blind, unable to rule his island for long. He then gifted it to his seventeen-year-old wife, Kunti. Will Dhaneshwari, the new ruler, be able to save the island and its women from the lustful eyes of the administration? Or will the government acquire the island? Or will Kunti be able to cast her spell and get the old tortoise to float away with the island on his back?
