Pilgrim’s Plight Author: Nabaneeta Dev Sen Translated by:Soma Das Publisher: Supernova Publishers Price: Rs 225 Pages: 180 By: Lakshmi Kannan Nabaneeta Dev Sen recalls a line by Tagore as she arrives at Kumbh Mela for mauni amavasya: ‘I shall be one with the dust at the foot of your throne’ The Holy Trail is a determined pilgrim’s progress to the Maha Kumbh of January 1977 Though it was published as a travelogue in Bengali this intense felt-in-the-bones narrative recounts a seeker’s journey An unsettling intellectual honesty engages us as we travel with this feisty young woman stumbling along the way to Kumbh her doubts only strengthening the resolve to persist A healthy robust humour clothes the most vexing situations till we reach the point when we are utterly subdued by the overwhelming spiritual event of the Kumbh coming upon us like a gigantic epiphany Kumbh Mela just happens to Sen A chance query from someone she had met in Kolkata triggers off a “whim” She is possessed by the wish to take a holy dip among 14 million devotees at Kumbh Instead of returning home after an academic trip to Hyderabad she heads towards Varanasi without appropriate clothes or footwear disregarding the shock of conventional people who object to the idea of a young woman “going alone” to Kumbh How can she be “alone” she wonders We hit the road with Sen in the rough and tumble adventure with all its hazards the dirt the hunger the parched thirst for a cup of tea in the biting cold Kumbh is an experience to be earned at the cost of comfort Suddenly one’s belongings feel like a dead weight Two small boys Lala and Gunga trudge along carrying her bags their faces shining “like lotus blossoms above their filthy clothes” After they leave young Bhikhu appears from nowhere to whisk up the heavy suitcase with a “smile on his face and bliss in his heart” The boys minor players in the epic drama of Kumbh give Sen her first brush with divinity There are amazing random encounters with strangers Sen walks the streets of Kumbh at night shivering in the cold She is drawn to a warm fire around which is huddled an all-male group headed by a sanyasi She sits with them They are uneasy but continue passing a chillum around deftly avoiding her each time Soon a hot creamy tea is specially prepared for her with cardamom cinnamon and sugar and offered to her by the sanyasi himself “Here my child have some tea” As the Buddha said we are all connected by a kinship that we cannot fathom Finally Sen takes a dip with a prayer on her lips for her ancestors while balancing precariously in one hand a sandal that threatens to drift away in the waters Kumbh is a cathartic experience for her as she melts into the multitude: “When have I ever been able to join hands with one crore of my countrymen for a single purpose” she asks herself In her translation Soma Das is able to capture what Sen calls her “odd sense of humour” (Author’s Note) in all its astounding range — swinging from the sceptical the

overqualification becomes normalised in the workplace it exerts a more positive influence over such behaviours as job performance and citizenship” said Jasmine Hu assistant professor of management at the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business “Furthermore organisations should celebrate employees’ qualifications when they are first brought on board and point out how these overqualified employees are in good company by highlighting that they will be working with a highly qualified group” said Hu “Managers could also encourage more interactions among members to build
