Book Number 14: Godaan by Premchand

Book number: 14

Book name: Godaan

Author: Premchand

Book Length: 351

Time taken to read: May 10- May 14

Genre: Fiction

Recommended to: The theme of this book is based upon a socio-economic deprivation and the exploitation of the poor guy of the village. It talks about the poverty and how one goes through all the tantrums from superior people in the village.

Inspired me to learn about:
Well, to be honest this is one of the best books people find in the Hindi literature but I didn’t like much because the story was so not connected. Maybe the current generation that we live in has nothing to do with what the author tried to portray years back.

3 takeaways from the book:

Three quotes from the book which I found on Internet. The one who created them has it’s credit

      1. I have read it when I was in school and don’t remember many things now, but you said, it is difficult to be connected with present times, it is written way back, from that point of views, depicting scenarios of that time and also , I am fan of Premchand so may be biased, I like his all his work, one if the best in Hindi fiction

  2. I have read this book back in school…it was included in our Hindi syllabus. And the another book by Premchand I read was ‘Nirmala’
    Sumit..if you haven’t read this…you can read might’s good.
    But it’s little melodramatic. Few instances will make you contemplate for a while.

      1. It’s nothing like that Sumit. Infact I even don’t remember about the books I have read. I guess it’s natural. Haina? The book which I told you about of Premchand is bit melodramatic 😅.

      2. Hahahah! It makes me so secured that I’m not the only one.
        I’m loving this talks with you after a long time. I wish our third partner would be here too.


      3. Yes, she is on sabbatical. I guess, we all need it. We should let her take all the time that she needs to be fully active. The best part is our Trinity loves each other the same way.


  3. I liked the second thought that you shared which said only those people who feel deeply can write, who has gone through something can bleed on paper in a way that people connect.

    I liked that thought!

  4. वाह! कितना खूबसूरत तरीके से लिखा है आपने। किसी बड़े लेखक के लिए ये कहना कि हमें उसका लेखन इतना पसंद नहीं आया, हाहा। बिल्कुल सत्य है। उन्होंने अपने समय का social realism बयान किया है। हमारे generation से उसका इतना संबंध नहीं है। सारे quotes हृदय स्पर्शी हैं। और लिखते रहिया सर। 🌟
    एंड चंदू इज़ बैक!! 🥳

  5. The third quote is so true and creative! 😄
    If you’ll ask me to name some Hindi Authors, Premchand would be the first name that my brain would ask me to speak!
    I haven’t read this book but in class 10th Hindi textbook “sparsh” there was a chapter Bade Bhai Sahab. It was so funny, creative and what not! That day I’d decided I’ll read more from his pen but till this day I haven’t implemented that! 😅😛

    1. You’re so lucky that you remember things Bhavya, unlike me. I have this problem of not remembering anything I’ve read.

      All I remember is how these amazing authors used to rhyme when I used to read them in my childhood. I was never into literature. I’ve accidentally turned into a writer.

      I’m glad that it could make you remember about your favorite ones.
