The Home and the World, was first serialised in the Bengali magazine, Sabujputra, in 1915. It follows the story of a wealthy and educated gentleman, Nikhilesh, his young wife, Bimala and his fiery friend, Sandip, a headstrong Swadeshi fighter. Under Sandip's influence, Bimala abandons the traditional role she has hitherto occupied and begins to step out of her confined world. But she is also dazzled by Sandip's rhetoric, unimpressed by the moderate politics and quiet determination of her husband and her transformation into a modern woman carries with it a great price.
