    Is there a human being anywhere who can satisfy each and every desire of another person? When you're young you have one sort of outlook on life you have a vibrant yet unused body It is then that you may in a flash find yourself enchanted by everything about some person or the other You set him or her apart from all other people You feel that if you could have that person you'd need nothing But when you do actually get him or her let's suppose through marriage that infatuation withers and falls in the span of one summer is washed out in one monsoonFinished reading this devastating book last night It didn't rain all night in fact it didn't rain at all but I could feel the water seep through the pages of the book which were awash in an endless torrent a metaphorical flash flood overwhelming the dreary desert of the protagonists' passionless marriage As you may have guessed It Rained All Night chronicles the gradual unraveling of a loveless marriage when a third man 'a man of action' no less inveigles himself into the unhappy euation of the couple Nayanangshu Maloti Translated from the original Bengali Rat Bhore Brishti it is structured as alternate chapters narrated from the perspective of the wife and the husband respectively Coming to the protagonists themselves Nayanangshu is a bookish frustratingly gentlemanly person who instead of grabbing Maloti as his own makes feeble cautious advances that leave much to be desired Maloti for one can't stand it that his idea of love is so drawn from the books he reads that he would rather read out poetry to her all night instead of actually making love While sexually dissatisfied Maloti is happy looking after the household and minding her own business until goaded by her husband to develop her own 'individuality' and learn about the world by mingling with his visiting male friends However inspite of his liberal inclinations Nayanangshu remains a hypocriticalpatriarchal liberal at best a tolerant tyrant eager to mould Maloti in his own image instead of letting her blossom in her own right So when Jayanto a poor yet energetic magazine editor makes his entry into their household it doesn't take long for the sparks of illicit desire to light up and the seeds of marital discontent are sownThe subject and plot may seem fairly run of the mill by present standards but the shockingly candid articulation of female desire caused so much outrage when the book was released in 1967 that it had to be banned Read in the present context I see this book as a provocative exploration of desire the meaning of marriage and what it means to actually 'love' someone all of it beautifully written And the end is devastating just devastatingHighly recommended

    I picked this book up entirely by chance on a visit to a second hand bookstore I haven't read much of Bengali literature and a book that was banned seemed a good place to amend that I loved the way Buddhadeva Bose has brought together two narrators who each bring their perspective on the marriage they are building or destroying depending on your point of view At times it can seem overly melodramatic but unusual for those times is the portrayal of adultery Too often we vilify adultery without understanding what drives us to have an affair and the institution that compels us to stay in court sanctioned marriages Here then is a rare portrayal of the nuances of adultery the layers that can behind the surface of a marriage and the choices we make in the exploration of the relationships that bind us A good read that must have been even better if read in Bengali

    It was a compelling read I didnot like the story but it had the ability to hold me spellboundAt around 40% I was sure I will give it 2 stars at the most but things shifted towards a powerful narrationThe two narrators Maloti and Angshu have been married to each other for 12 years and have a 10 year old daughter Bunni Noyanangshu is a peculiar person who internalizes his feelings and abhors display of affection and weakness He likes to think himself a liberal gentleman but in his wife's eyes is actually a tyrant who wants things to proceed his way He is of the opinion that a person should not be confined by marriage and should be allowed to 'graze' far and wideMaloti who fell in love with her young English teacher Noyanangshu initially idolizes him and agrees to all his terms But off late she is realizing his negative points with and force and is fed up of him and their marriage to such an extent so as to avoid physical relations with himAngshu makes Maloti interact with his male friends and slowly but surely Jayonto the slightly ragamuffin weekly publisher cum journalist and Maloti are attracted towards each other culminating in physical intercourse from the point of which the story starts6 alternative chapters lead us into the minds of Maloti and Angshu both are right both are wrong and both are to be blamedI sort of sided with each when they put forth their viewpoints but if I am asked to chose sides I would tilt towards Maloti as she seems to be the normal of the couple who just sought love and companionship which was not provided by her husbandThis story made me think a lot about the institute of marriage its restraints and its freedom Was a very powerful book and one thing which left me wondering is why the couple never sought any counseling as at varying points they both want to make amends and lead life as husband and wife despite Jayanto happening

    A snapped wire can never be made whole again you shall never recapture that lost melody—you shall just exist grow old with one who does not love you one whom you will have forgotten to love But what difference does it make tell me—love’s not really important It’s the husband–wife relationship that is What matters is life and we must live itBanned when it was first published in Bengali in 1967 on charges of obscenity 'Rat Bhore Brishti' or 'It Rained All Night' written by Buddadeva Bose translated by Clinton B Seeley is a stunning example of a book way ahead of its timeMaloti married to Nayanangshu for 12 years finds herself drawn to his friend Jayanto who is polar opposite of her husband A tale of love desire infidelity and deception set on the night that Maloti succumbing to her desire sleeps with Jayanto the couple recall the instances leading upto the affairAngshu is described bookish by Maloti When they were newly married he read poems important lines though it bored her Then he often chided her for trying to impress his family or for her pleasures in the 'girlie' things as he called her love for jewellery The initial years of marriage she tries to frame herself as per his desires in a foggy love for him They eventually move out of the joint family home to a different flat on Angshu's interest but Maloti craves for female company and the little pleasures like seeing a movie with her him Angshu seems detached less expressive and often invites his friends for literary and other discussions over the weekend While she expects alone time he encourages her to make friends with his friendsOn one hand he wants her to be on par with a man's position encouraging her to think have individuality but his hypocrisy is revealed where he doesn't want her outshining him Her mundane life brightens up after the arrival of Jayanto who pays attention to every detail and enjoys her companyWhile the story is told from POVs of Anghu and Maloti is alternate chapters with the final one giving the thoughts of both on the day after the incident Sexuality is discussed with ease here Maloti's growing years her puberty changes in body and blooming into an attractive woman Angshu on the other hand grows up with the agony of adolescence trying to find an outlet for his new emotionsAngshu earlier Maloti's professor is different from her expectations While she desires for ravishing experience Angshu is subtle and calm lost in his world Both knew the game the other was playing Angshu of the affair and Maloti of his ignorance Maloti though repulsed by Anshu's physical aspects does enjoy other aspects of their companionshipMaloti's feelings while were understandable as a female for me Angshu's reasons for not confronting was a revelation He tries hard to bridge the broken relationship though Maloti shuns him Each wanting to punish the other for the pain but bound to each other by their daughter Their ego and societal perceptions probably kept them from breaking offBose's prose is rich emotional and vivid Each frame of the story moves like a movie seamlessly in the backdrop of rain Lot of pertinent uestions are posed and desire and love are interrelatedI could not put this book down and was conflicted as to who was right among the both But that was never the uestion The complexities of human emotions a man and woman's relation physical and mental is explored hereDo a man and woman only bound by marriage stay in a relationship without desire?Rating 55


  5. Sejal Ghia Sejal Ghia says:

    The rawness of this book is most striking The characters speak so candidly they influence the way you view right from wrong and you discover the grey areas of morality which by the way constitute the majority The human behaviour is depicted with so much richness and such textureI love how the narration is alternated between Maloti and Nayonangshu each telling us their side of the story and how the reader feels at the same time a third party voyeur and a closely involved part of the storyThe author muses about the nature of desire and it's almost as if desire enjoys a character of its ownThe book reads lucidly spins real vivid characters with the help of anecdotes that are sometimes funny sometimes enlightening always palpable and presents an interestingly complex picture of love and marriage


  6. Muddle head Muddle head says:

    One of the best Indian Fiction i've read till dateThe author creates two characters strips them naked right down to their thoughts in the midst of a matrimonial crisis The reader takes the role of a sounding board initially listening to the couples' most intimate thoughts After a while we realize the author has just created a mirror and its our own naked selves that we are hearing toThe story starts with Maloti feeling relieved at last that she has done 'it' with Jayanto she can't help but long for him after he has gone And in the midst of her craving for him her husband Nayanongshu comes home He immediately realizes what happened but says nothing They both have a 'normal' dinner and then retire to the bedroom to their separate beds facing away from each other each as awake as day light while it rained all night As a reader we take turns listening to their thoughts while they both go through their lives finally culminating on that nightBeing an English translation i can't vouch for the beauty of the language and its lyrical ualities but the subject matter was than sufficient to keep one intriguedThe blurb might give one the impression of this being a story told only from a female point of view of being yet another story of a nerdy husband neglecting a beautiful wife but it's not I personally found the blurb is very misleading and doesn't do any justice to the actual subject matter


  7. Dhiraj Sharma Dhiraj Sharma says:

    I read this book for two reasons firstly the reviews on GR were encouraging and secondly I wanted to read what exactly made the Govt ban this book in the 1960sI presume that probably it was because the book is centered around the extramarital affair between the protagonist Maloti and Jayanto her husband’s Angshu’s friend with whom Maloti breaks one of the Ten Commandments “Thou shalt not commit adultery” or the author’s descriptions of the debauchery though certainly not graphic as per today’s standards or probably it was because of the author’s penchant for describing in detail the curvature of Maloti’s breasts at several places thought out the book I could safely conclude that the book got banned since it wasn’t in line with people’s sensibilities of the 1960sWhatever be the case this is a probably the only Indian novel which touches upon the now rampant but less outwardly visible extramarital affairs and takes potshots at the reader’s head by provoking him to take sidesThe book has this uniue concept of telling the story from both the husband and wife’s perspective When you first read it from wife’s viewpoint you can’t help but feel sympathy for her but in the next chapter the husband narrates his part of the story and you end up feeling pity for the husband At the end you really can’t make out as to who is the proverbial “complete jerk” in this whole sham called marriage” A snapped wire can never be made whole again” and this is how the book ends on a note of hope but without any near reconciliation in sightThe crux lies in the fact that both husband and wife infer and react to a given situation in a different way and therein lies the dispute and the root cause of all misunderstanding between married couples Midway through the book I was wondering whether making the lead characters read John Gray’s “Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus” would have made any difference or notThe conclusion also reminds me of the famous dialogue from the Hindi movie “Guide” ”Sach to yeh hai Rosy ki na main tumhen samajh paya na tum mujhe samajh payi” Rosy the truth of the matter is that neither could you understand me nor could I understand youIt rained all night is certainly not a classic or path breaking piece of work but a light enough read if you intend to read something out of the ordinary
