This book is about seven characters author has chosen from the Kolkata that we have left behind a long time ago. Six of them are kings. Another is the prince. The stale story of history has become as fresh as a flower in the pen of Purnendu Patri. This book is one of the few books in Bengali children’s literature that we can call ‘Apurba’ (Wonderful).
In fact, the history we learn from schools and colleges is basically political history. In those histories there is a subtle impression of Pros and cons. History looks different from different perspectives. The “Kolkatar Rajkahini” genre is not a direct history book, the life stories of some famous Bengali kings and princes. This book mentions their lives briefly, a description of their immense wealth, which gives us an idea of how rich the people of Bengal were before the arrival of the British. This book makes us think, money is necessary but human service is something bigger. There is self-satisfaction in the middle of the human service. Social reform is one thing and self-reform and own family reform is one other thing.
From this book we will be able to know the biographies of six prominent personalities in ancient Kolkata, they are-
Raja Nobokrishna Deb
Raja Rammohon Roy
Raja Subodhchandra Mallik
