Best 5 Bengali Story Books To Read
There are many books but it is very difficult to find or select good books. So far many types of books have been written in many languages. But the number of books that have left a mark on people's minds is not very high. Since we are Bengalis, Bengali books are our first choice when it comes to book selection. As a Bengali, my personal opinion is that a Bengali book can express our feelings as easily as any other language, and no other language can express our thoughts or feelings as easily. In this episode, let us introduce you to some Bengali books that should be in your collection as a book lover.


1. Pather Panchali: (Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay): It is an immortal work of Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay. Durga, a simple rural girl and her younger brother Apur Khunsuti, through various activities, the poet has beautifully painted a picture of rural life. The conflict of rural life, conflict, Durga and Apur Ma Sarvajaya's constant fight against poverty are beautifully portrayed in this essay. Finally Durga Karun Death has added a different dimension to this composition. This is an immortal creation in the literary collection of Bengalis.


2. Feluda (Satyajit Ray): Feluda written by Satyajit Ray is an invaluable work of Bengali literature. It is a detective story. The protagonist of this essay is Feluda (Pradosh Chandra Mitra) who solves one impossible mystery after another with the help of his keen intelligence. His brother Topse (Tapesaranjan Mitra) recorded his adventures to solve this mystery. One mystery after another, Feluda's ability to solve mysteries will create a suspension inside the reader. The comedic character Jatayu (Lalmohan Ganguly) of the story will give a different kind of satisfaction to the reader by creating humor in the mind of the reader.


3.Sesher Kabita: (Rabindranath Tagore): The Love story of the triangle 'The Last Poem' is an immortal creation of Rabindranath Tagore. The two main characters of the poem are Lavanya and Amit. Amit is a modern young man, on the other hand Lavanya is a young woman who is ordinary but extraordinary. In Amit's words, "there may be a place worth seeing in this world, but there is no place worth seeing him." Not only will this extraordinary love novel take place in the mind of the reader, but in the course of life and some of the words of this novel will come to mind again and again. Like other loves, Amit and Lavanya do not get love and fullness. This separation has given them the fullness of their love.


4. Byomkeshbakshi (Sharbindu Bandyopadhyay): This is a great gift in the possession of Bengali literature. Ever since the beginning of detective story writing in Bengal, a trend has become prevalent that detective is unmarried, loveless. Sharbindu Bandyopadhyay broke this tradition and introduced a new one. Who has a woman in his life. Byomkeshbakshi is actually a truth seeker who is  looking for the truth. Written in a mixture of great mysteries and love, this detective story will create a different feeling in the mind of the reader.

5. Shabinoy Nibedan (Buddhadev Basu): A very sweet love story. The story of a forest officer's love affair with an urban modern. The heroine of the story came to walk in the forest with her aunt and suddenly fell in front of a herd of wild elephants. At that very moment, the protagonist of the story appeared as the savior. At one stage the exchange of letters began. There is another one in the life of both of them. But their correspondence has reached such a stage that they have given up all past relationships and they have fulfilled their letter to Mitali.
