The Promise book. Read reviews from world's largest community for readers. English translation of the epic one sided love story of Lehna Singh, this old.
On the surface level, this recruitment seemed to be voluntary but in reality, it was a forced one. The investigation conducted by Congress after the massacre of in Punjab revealed that with the help of Numberdars, Lieutenant General Michael O.
Dyer forced the youth to join army. Forced recruitment in army and sending the soldiers to war front meant death. The soldiers were forced to fight for that country with which they had no emotional relation.
On the other side were tradition bound Indian women. Their entire life and personality depended on their husbands and sons who were sent to war to die. One could imagine the plight of an Indian woman whose husband and son are sent to war to die. Soobedarni in the story gets a ray of hope when she sees Lahna Singh.
Please save my husband and son like that. I beg before you to save my husband and son. At the same point the inhuman aspect of war with all its devastating effects appear before the reader. Only women are left to wail over the death of their husbands and sons.
History is a witness to the fact that women are the worst sufferers in the war. Soobedarni is also afraid of this fact.
It hovers around the blooded grounds, ditches filled with dead bodies and cremation grounds talking about sympathy, kindness and sacrifice.
It highlights the emotion of love that prevents a man from becoming an animal amidst the nude dance of violence and death.
Britain, Germany and France sent a large number of soldiers from their coloniez nations to fight in the war, out of which Indian soldiers were largest in number. Indian soldiers were not trained in using modern weapons and they were not properly equipped to cope with extreme weather conditions so many of them died due to extreme cold and others were killed in the war.
About one-third war fronts were managed by Indian soldiers in France. This story is the first attempt in Hindi literature that is set against the background of First World War. Thousands of people were fighting in France and Belgium and we people used to look at the map to find the war areas.
No creative writer could remain unaffected by war. Premchand has carefully selected the title of the story so that British officers may not suspect it to be anti-British. The story depicts the social conditions of that time and father-son relationship during Home rule movement. Europe may win over us, but we will not leave our culture and tradition. We have to save ourselves from spiritual degradation. We may have taken the novel form from Europe, but we have to keep the Indian soul alive in it.
The story also tells how inspite of having sympathy with fellow Indians and non-cooperation movements, big businessmen and shopkeepers were bound to stand by British government. When Simon Commission visited India in , sensitive writers like Premchand felt that insightful, kind and justice loving leaders are required by Indian masses to gain independence. The theme of this story is that, in order to gain independence, feelings of self-respect and confidence are a pre-requisite.
Debt of English company was increasing day by day and political condition of India was in a sorry state.
There was no movement of any kind or agitation in the city, no blood shed etc. No king of an independent country was defeated in such a peaceful manner in the entire history. It was not an example of non-violent attitude but of cowardice on which even greatest cowards would shed tears. The nawab of hige state of Awadh was a captive and Lucknow was sleeping peacefully.
In , Premchand was writing a story about the beginning of colonial rule about 58 years ago. It also narrates how the British government succeeded in establishing and expanding their rule on account of their treacherous nature and weak political structure of India. In this story, a strong and brave girl displays her patriotism. For her, love for country is her prior concern and goal. She sacrifices everything to achieve her goal.
Young people, elderly people and children were walking in the streets carrying flags and singing Vande Mataram. People were looking at them standing on both sides of the road as if they had nothing to do with this whole affair.
Their sole aim was to watch them moving. These stories portrayed the fact that British people knew that the revolt was initiated by Indian farmers and it was a weak but joint effort by them otherwise there was no need to terrorize the villagers of Awadh. These stories also tell how the minister and army chief Raja Lal Singh joined hands with the British that led to the downfall of Punjab.
Lal Singh reaches the battlefield where he sees his daughter taking her last breath. She insults her father and describes her dying situation. Like Premchand, Ugr has written many stories about Indian freedom struggle. Earlier he was confined within the political sphere of renaissance poetry.
He had witnessed Hindu- Muslim riots, favouritism on the basis of caste and race, manipulation of religion, lust, brutality of the government, exploitation of common people,and struggle of revolutionaries for freedom and he could beautifully described them in his stories. The massacre of Jallianwala Bagh that took place in was the peak of brutality and inhuman attitude that was committed on Indians.
Jainendra kumar had also entered in story writing field by now. Story revolves around clashes between friendship and duty. The story is based on the life of one Afridi couple. The mother tied her child on her back but somehow the child gets dropped in the battlefield during their fight with British forces.
On growing up, the child joins army and earns fame because of his bravery.
He does not know about his father and kills him in the battlefield the dead body was displayed on the crossroad of the city. After some unexpected incidents story gains validity. Second world war started in and continued till October Indian masses were against the British government.
It created a threatening condition for British government in India. But the war came to an end in and sudden and untimely departure of Bose resulted in hopelessness among Indian people. Although Indian forces did not experience heavy losses in but Indian economy suffered badly due to increased corruption, inflation, black marketing and famine in Bengal.
In the meantime, British government crushed the Indian Nationalist movement in Many writers have portrayed these conditions in their writings.
In this story the dancer Andriy tries to mesmerise French people in favour of Germans. The story describes how a Burmese girl protects her honour by killing the Japanese rapist and committing suicide. The way Koushik describes and recreates the atmosphere of war in France,its really surprising for the readers as well as critics.
The economic condition of Indian common man was badly affected due to world war. In this story a father struggles for one kilogram wheat in order to feed his son ,just after he recovers from illness. It signifies that animals do have sympathy for one another but human beings are completely devoid of any sympathy for fellow human beings.
The writer says that due to poverty, if a poor man steals a few rupees, he is severely punished but those who steal lakhs of rupees spend a luxurious life. The protagonist of the story Shivprasad is an intelligent man but his wife has a habit of hoarding wheat. A Chinese girl Soya protects a Japanese captive and goes with him as his beloved to the Japanese camp where she is alleged to nurture hatred towards Japan and is given death sentence.
The tribunal which gives death sentence to the girl contains that General who was protected by Soya but he disappears same night and never returns.
Probably he committed suicide. This film is Bhattacharjee's first independent directorial venture. Bimal Roy produced this film under his banner "Bimal Roy Productions". The film is based on a renowned Hindi short story of the same name written by Chandradhar Sharma Guleri which was published in in Saraswati.
