The true reason for the success of Devdas as fiction is less in the melodramatic emotions of love and In the hands of Chattopadhyay the grandiosity of the love-triangle becomes an achingly beautiful piece of minimalist fiction.

The true reason for the success of Devdas as fiction is less in the melodramatic emotions of love and passion of the kind seen in the famous movie version — though they are, in part, there — and more in the subtle nuances, the reasons that provoke that tragedy and loss, and the realisation that this tragedy could have been avoided if subtle, small conversations had turned out differently that's ultimately difficult to accept.

Devdas is stylistically deliberately slight, and it's only after spending pages with Chattopadhyay's prose in translation, at least that one begins to realise that we are being manipulated and beguiled by his sparseness, and entranced as much by what is not-shown as by what is; that the author can quite happily spend 30 pages highlighting a seemingly trivial point of Devdas and Paro's relationship during school but equally skip over a year, or two, or five and we comfortably pick up the story as if there is no gap or loss.

That the story is not so much about highlighting the climactic moments in the the relationship between the two not-quite lovers but by swerving in and out of their lives, creates a greater feeling of curiosity, tension and ultimately a sense of loss.

Perhaps even harder to swallow is that big events in the lives of the protagonists come about through, not just small things, but things left unspoken or undetailed. Probably the biggest turning point in the book occurs when Parvati comes to see Devdas at night because she is in love and wants to marry him. So certain is she of his returning her love that she doesn't think twice about her disgrace should she be caught.

During this scene the declaration of love remains unspoken, the assumption is enough and the conversation turns to Paro's potential fright or disgrace of coming at night. Devdas offers to take her home, leaving their love assumed, and then ultimately rejects her by running away to Calcutta and sending a short letter.

It's a seemingly uncomplicated scene until one realises that it is Devdas' inability to understand and relate to Paro emotionally, perhaps as a woman, that condemns his relationship and ultimately himself to death.

Devdas By Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay

As a child he orders her about and then abuses her when she stands up to him, telling him no or questioning his behaviour. As an adult he is intimidated by her independence and boldness, but again he cannot express it verbally or confront it, so instead runs away, treating Parvati cruelly.

It's you, men, who praise them no end — and then it's you who blame them and pull them down from their pedestal.

Parvati looks forward to their childhood love blossoming into a happy lifelong journey in marriage.

According to prevailing social custom, Parvati's parents would have to approach Devdas's parents and propose marriage of Parvati to Devdas as Parvati longs for. Parvati's mother approaches Devdas's mother, Harimati, with a marriage proposal. Although Devdas's mother loves Parvati very much she isn't so keen on forming an alliance with the family next door. Besides, Parvati's family has a long-standing tradition of accepting dowry from the groom's family for marriage rather than sending dowry with the bride.

The alternative family tradition of Parvati's family influences Devdas's mother's decision not to consider Parvati as Devdas' bride, especially as Parvati belongs to a trading becha -kena chottoghor lower family.

The "trading" label is applied in context of the marriage custom followed by Parvati's family. Devdas's father, Narayan Mukherjee, who also loves Parvati, does not want Devdas to get married so early in life and isn't keen on the alliance.

Parvati's father, Nilkantha Chakravarti, feeling insulted at the rejection, finds an even richer husband for Parvati.


When Parvati learns of her planned marriage, she stealthily meets Devdas at night, desperately believing that he will accept her hand in marriage. Devdas has never previously considered Parvati as his would-be wife.

Surprised by Parvati's boldly visiting him alone at night, he also feels pained for her. Making up his mind, he tells his father he wants to marry Parvati.

Devdas's father disagrees. In a confused state, Devdas flees to Calcutta. From there, he writes a letter to Parvati, saying that they should simply continue only as friends.

Within days, however, he realizes that he should have been bolder. He goes back to his village and tells Parvati that he is ready to do anything needed to save their love.
