I’m devoted to storybooks. In my free time, I love to read stories and poems. Well, you can’t be bored in the company of a good book. I love to read books in my mother tongue Bengali. So I’m a great fan of Bengal novels. My favourite writers are Saratchandra Chattopadhyay and Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay. There are so many characters in storybooks that inspired me. But the storybook character which inspires me the most is Devi Chaudhurani aka Prafulla. The character is from the famous Bengali novel of Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay “Devi Chaudhurani”. The character Prafulla’s transformation from a fearful rural girl to the fearless bandit Queen Is so intriguing. She was born to a very poor family. She has seen her father since childhood. She was raised by her mother. From her childhood, she faced discrimination and humiliation for her background. But never have the courage to speak against it. Her fortune turned when she was married to a very wealthy son of a zamindar. But her happiness didn’t last long. Soon she left the house of her in-laws for her evil father in law. And she lost her mother too. After facing so many adversities in life she becomes strong as a rock. And ready to accept her Destiny. But in a forest, she became acquainted with a revolutionist and impressed him with her intelligence. And after hard training, she became their leader. Her strong transformation fascinates me. I also love the way she overcomes the obstacles of her life. The transformation From a furious rural girl to the rescuer of the needy people are really amazing.
