Summary of the Book
Bengali translation of 'Mahanayak' novel written by Vishwas Patil.
The enormous contribution made by so many nameless, faceless and forgotten thousands for India’s freedom. What stuff were those men and women made of? What was it about Netaji that drew people to his side, forgetting home, family, personal life, all for a greater nobler cause? And what was Netaji’s reward in the end? Inevitably one thinks, one only remembers the winner. No one thinks of the runner-up however well he may have fought. Not only does Patil present the character of Netaji in all its facets, he also shows us the other side of popular leaders whom we have held in high esteem. And leaves us to make our own judgments.
