Author: Chatterj, Bankim Chandra
Description: ‘Anadamath’ is an extraordinary political novel. The plot of the story, which has epical dimensions, is based on the sanyasi rebellion that erupted in Bengal in the late eighteenth century. The sanyasis fought the British against all odds, whom they regarded as an arch enemy of the country and responsible for the terrible famine of 1772. In this novel, Bankim also wrote ‘Bande Matram’ (‘Hail Motherland’) and gave India its first national song, which later became a rallying call of the national freedom movement.
