Home and the World (Ghare Baire) is the story set against the backdrop of the partition of Bengal by the British in 1905. It is the story of a young liberal-minded zamindar Nikhilesh, his educated and sensitive wife Bimala and Nikhilesh's friend Sandip, a charismatic and nationalist leader whom Bimala finds herself attracted to. A perceptive explosion of difficulties, surrounding women's emancipation in pre-modern India, and a telling portrayal of the chasms inherent in the nationalist movement, Home and the World has generated endless debate and discussion.
