Description: ‘Ghoonpoka’. The title symbolises the life-experience of the protagonist, the hollowness of the modern urban civilization. The novel, however, does not end with decay and degeneration, but with a vision of beauty and a promise of regeneration. Translated from the Bengali original by Shampa Banerjee
