This is the story of kamal-aa bold, remarkable, and confident woman who never hesitate to be her own person. She travels on her own, finds work for herself, has liaisons with multiple men, and unabashedly expresses her unconventional opinions. Kamal goes about living life on her own terms, an act that is shocking to the people around her, given that she lives in a society where emancipation and freedom is not associated with women. Through the voice of Kamal, esteemed Bengali writer Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay has raised questions about the place of women in the Indian society. This novel is one of chattopadhyay's last novels and is considered a masterpiece. Shesh Prashna was published in 1931 and is a remarkably bold novel for its time.
