Overview: Jorasanko

Jorasanko is a book that details the contribution of Tagore women within the modern womens movement. The book is titled Jorasanko since the ancestral home of Tagores was known by that name. The book explains that Jnanandanandini, who was the wife of Satyendranath Tagore (the elder brother of Rabindranath Tagore) was first Indian to gain entry into the civil services. She became the first woman from a feudal background to work with her husband and was largely responsible for opening the "zenana" or the area of seclusion which was meant for women.

The book details that she was also responsible for bringing the Parsi style of sari wearing to Bengal. The book is exceptionally interesting and reads like a family soap almost making you forget that it is a nonfiction book. The book also takes a detailed look at the other women in the Tagore household and their beliefs or value systems.

The book is very well researched and takes an in depth look into the Tagore household, beautifully recreating it. Through the different women described in the book you get to understand and evaluate the complexities of womens role in the society. The book also beautifully reflects the inner longings, hopes, defeats and triumphs of the Tagore women through their experiences as well as their interpersonal relationships.

Through the book you get a glimpse of the women during those times breaking away from the feudal family structure. The book has been written by Aruna Chakravarti and is renowned writer, translator as well as an academic. The other books written by the author include Inheritors and The Way Home: Contemporary Bengali Short Fiction. You can shop online for the paperback edition of the book published by Harper India with ISBN-10: 9350290871 and ISBN-13: 978-9350290873.
