I Shall Come Out Like a Tremendous Comet (A Novel on the Life and Times of Michael Madhusudhan Dutt, the First Great Poet and Dramatist of Modern India)
Description
From the Book

Dealing with the life and times of Michael Madhusudan Dutt, the first great poet and dramatist of modern India, I shall come out like a Tremendous Comet vividly recreates the social ferment and cultural efflorescence of an important period in the history of modern India. Michael was one of the great products of and closely involved in many of the events surrounding the Bengal Renaissance. The second Indian to qualify as a British Barrister-at-law and the first to marry a white woman in colonial India he led a colorful tempestuous and ultimately tragic life. Crusading against many odds, Michael became a torchbearer of the Renaissance revolutionizing Bengali literature by a series of increasingly daring literary experiments.

Michael’s interactions with the colorful Young Bengal’s and the legendary social reformer Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar become a riveting window into his world. Vignettes of life in Victorian times in Calcutta Black, Gray, and white Towns as well as Michael’s voyage to England and his sojourn in France add further flavor and verisimilitude to the novel.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
