A Princely Impostor? : The Strange and Universal History of the Kumar of Bhawal. So began one of the most extraordinary legal cases in Indian history.

Author: Partha Chatterjee.

The story he tells unfolds alongside decades of Indian history. He is the author of many books, including Nationalist Thought and the Colonial World and The Nation and Its Fragments (Princeton). Its plot is shaped by changing gender and class relations and punctuated by critical historical events, including the onset of World War II, the Bengal famine of 1943, and the Great Calcutta Killings. And by identifying the earliest erosion of colonialism and the growth of nationalist thinking within the organs of colonial power, Chatterjee also gives us a secret history of Indian nationalism.

Partha Chatterjee's retelling of the notoriously famous 'Bhawal Sannyasi Case' - one of India's best known and most historic legal battles - is narrative history of the finest kind. It is an epic story of war within a household which spills out into the social life of colonial Bengal; and beyond, into the administrative and legal fabric of India during the heyday of nationalism; and then beyond that again, into spirituality and philosophy, legend and folklore, theatre and cinema.
