Durgesh Nandini, Bankim Chandra's masterpiece that ushered in a fresh breath of air in Bengali Literature is on the surface, a tale of instant attraction and infatuation of two young hearts.

But the most effective symbol of heroic romance in the novel is the matchless Bimla whose inimitable character, sophisticatedly handled by Bankim, offers unusual and engaging possibilities of multiple readings and presents a vision that rejects narrow divisions and discriminations on the grounds of religion, caste and sex.

The novel transports the readers to the era of Kings and nobles, of honour and courage and valour.
