Very symbolic! It engages in a symbolism of cause and effect. Why people fight revolution and why does desperation encourage discontent? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.

One comment on “The Assassinator by Bitan Chakraborty”
The story has quite a few interesting facets. Initially it creates an air of suspense, where the common reader is lured in anticipation of a mystery unfolding, a crime as a central theme and the promise of the associated thrill it brings along. The writer successfully accomplishes that with the uncanny buildup of characters. At a subconscious level the reader is almost aware of the dream like sequence, and the unreal feel of events, however is unsure. He reads along with this amused uncertainty and unearths the secret in the last few lines. The essence lies in the twist at the tail, which successfully stimulates the intellectual quotient of the reader as well as generates a very strong message. Liked the personification of revolution in ‘biplab’ and the inspiration it draws from ‘Abani Bari acho’.
