Description
Abandoned by his fellow travelers on a tiger-stalked shore in eastern Bengal, the narrator stumbles across a strange woman, in this pioneering 1866 novel by Bengali writer Bankim Chandra Chatterjee. But the strikingly beautiful Kapalkundala has been enslaved by a priest—one who plans to sacrifice them both in an esoteric tantric rite. For Kapalkundala and the narrator to escape, they must marry each other and travel on to town in disguise. As soon as they reach the road however, they encounter a second woman, laden with jewels and as beguiling, to the narrator, as the first. Apparently a Mughal aristocrat from the court of Emperor Akbar, she already knows more about the narrator than it seems she should.
