It can be traced to the first hypothesis of the closed familial order in which women seem extraneous: women agency seen as unnecessary distraction.

So keen is Ray to foreground a very specific clientele looking for closure in a family crisis that he is attentive to not leave possibilities of dis-closure, a possibility that women are inevitably accused of engendering in adult fiction. The boy- subject must remain under-informed about female agency to help him to retain his boy-agency. And that would be only a normal course of things.

The problem is if there is a young woman there might be a clash with Topse. Or her relation with Topse might give rise to certain complications. Sananda 27 The problem is indeed structural but not for Topshe.

Just as Topshe is transfixed as an ageless, wide-eyed narrator of a closed set of gentrified clients, the female is equally transfixed in her absence. If there is a structure at all,it is the structure of inheritance in which the women do not fit easily.

Feluda draws his ability to commit himself to the dangers of the world of crime only because he is unattached sexually and emotionally. His sexual potency finds release in his mobility.

Psychoanalytically, his method of deep penetration into his work stands as the metaphor of his absent, actual libido. Crime, as Ray himself admitted, has a notoriously adult quality about it. In spite of being drawn into them, Topshe remains defiantly pre-Lapsarian, umbilically fastened to the wide-eyedness of adolescence rather than drawn into the natural pulls of puberty that his participation in the roster of crimes would otherwise entail.

If at all, Feluda ends up being the un-ageing, sexless role model for a permanent adolescence that is chained to forbearing, a-libidinal civility. Hidden under their normalism and affable, bhadrolok endearment, Feluda and Topshe are integral to a problematic construction of boyhood, part of a larger project of consolidation of the family that was ushered under colonial modernity and something that Ray himself confesses to having been a bequest.

So, while Ray abandons the institutionalization of the reformist faith, he is completely at home with its teleological purpose, which is to construct a virtuous normalism around the bhadrolok regimes of thought, action, and seeing. It is with this purpose that a reverse, almost puritanical ageism is factored into the stories in which Feluda and Topshe with conscience remain outside the disquiet of ageing while being confidently ensconced by it. In other words, in a series—which is not observant of topographies, human frailties, the banter of everyday life and the unquestionable efficacy of rationality—the decidedly utopian ageism must be seen as a political interpolation.

By reconstituting the young adult detective genre from a range of possible and imminent sources, Ray had set out to complete a project which was in earnest undertaken by his father and grandfather.

And this was to reinforce the bhadrolok aesthetic regime as obvious and hence desirable. Needless to say this program, in its own way, has remained unbeaten. Feluda has managed to regale young men and women with unfailing success from its first appearance, and generations have passed it down to their children to be read and savored.

It is unlikely that the original, colonial ideation of manufacturing an ideal-child subject, who would grow up in an independent state as a sexless, incorruptible adolescent and remain forever chained to a nameless authoring agency,will be subverted any time soon.

Notes 1. The Bengali meaning of Sandesh refers to both news derived from Hindustani sandesa and the local sweetmeat—a name both suitable and easily recognizable for a magazine for children.

Beginningin the early-nineteenth century, there was a proliferation of periodicals and journals available to children, especially to those educated in the newly emerging modern modes of education. Titled Hojoborolo, this work remains hugely popular even today.

One must note that the Alice-figure in the narrative is a young, pre-puberty boy. Ray has written with delicious nuance about his childhood, his growing sphere of interests, the quirks of his extended family, and the sights and sounds of Calcutta that have remained ingrained in him to use extensively in a number of his stories.

He died soon after, on April 23, This includes first and subsequent editions of all the thirty-five novels and novellas published from to the s. Also a Feluda adaptation, the last one adapted for the screen by Ray himself. One must also add Phatikchand and Goopy Bagha Phire Elo , both scripted by Ray and filmed by his son Sandip Ray and both with decisive parts for male children and young adults. The Byomkesh stories, apart from being very widely read, have had a long association with the screen.

Incidentally, the first Byomkesh story to have been adapted for screen was by Ray himself, as The Zoo, with Uttam Kumar, the legendary star of Bengali cinema, as Byomkesh Bakshi.

There is more to Lecoq than one can hope to immediately understand. Vidocq also happened to be the inspiration for the first-ever Bengali detective. According to Sukumar Sen, a scholar of the genre, the formation of the police system in the first half of the nineteenth century, both in London and as its colonial headquarters in Calcutta, was to mark the real origins of modern detective writing.

Incidentally, both Ramsay and Bose had served considerable years in the newly established police force in mid-nineteenth century Calcutta. However, once the Bengali fictional detective moved away from real case histories, inspiration came largely from Europe. One can make a case for the propensity to adapt European fiction, because few people outside the educated class would read any language outside Bengali, but the appeal of the genre far outnumbered the middle classes.

For a detailed understanding of the range of detective fiction in colonial Bengal and Bengali, see Sukumar Sen, Krime KahinirKalkranti It has to be clarified, however, that when Ray started writing his popular detective series, he was staying in Lake Temple Road, the same locality as the one the author mentions. He moved to his Bishop Lefroy Road address in Calcutta, ABP Publications, Grenby, M.

More titles to consider

The plots involve murder, intrigue and adventure narrated in a racy, humorous style. It is a very entertaining book, to say the least. He gets a threat letter that says that he will soon die. Rajen Babu takes the help of Feluda — the young and dashing detective and asks him to find out who wrote this letter. As the mystery unfolds, the needle of suspicion moves from one person to another and there are quite a few who fall under the shadow of doubt, and the suspense on the fate of Rajen Babu hangs by a thin wire.

But ultimately, a twist in the tale brings out that the most unsuspected person was behind the whole plot. This book is unputdownable. I took it with me on my travels too as it makes the reader want to reach the end of each story and know who is the real criminal.

How outdated is your assistant, Mr Sanyal? His personal voice sounded diverse. You advised me a unusual story of warnings in hieroglyphics, then staged a theft, simply to get rid of suspicion from your self.

You by no means had a nephew in any respect. That used to be one other tale you cooked up.

The boy and the dwarf have been despatched out jointly. The dwarf was once evidently strong sufficient to take on Bangshalochan. It was once an excellent plan, relatively.

Ghana-da was distinctly Bengali in habits, especially in his obsessive gluttony and armchair fondness. Ray was not unaware of this tendency but seemed somewhat helpless to bring any closure to his own construction of a world without the female subject.

She died in her domestic, torched to loss of life by way of a fiend with an unknown intent.
