The difference between a good detective story and a truly outstanding one is the signal to noise ratio. If you increase the signals that lead to the the solution of the mystery, then you stand the chance of losing the interest of readers who have easily solved the mystery. The premise is simple enough. Byomkesh and Ajit are investigating the curious disappearance of a photograph from the house of Mahidhar Choudhury, a rich elderly man who lives in a palatial house with his only daughter Rajani.
Byomkesh and Ajit learn that there were three copies of this photograph apart from the negatives. After a number of break-ins in which apparently very little gets stolen, it is revealed that there are no existing copies of the photograph.
In addition, a remarkably talented artist named Falguni Pal who possesses the rare gift of being able to draw accurate resemblances of the characters from a single glance shows up on the premises and gets murdered.
Although there are other reasons why the copies of the photograph might be stolen, the most likely, considering the lengths taken to acquire them and the fact that a murder is involved, is that whoever is taking the photograph does not want to be identified in it. As an active reader of mystery fiction, I usually sit down with pen and paper to write down possible suspects and motives while reading. Komiksy Kaczora Donalda Download Google.
I am happy to say that I had no clue. Consider the complexity of Chitrochor. There is a very intriguing story running in parallel to the main plot. This complicated love story involves mystery, suspicion, jealousy, and suspected infidelity and is remarkable as a work of fiction in itself. Completely integrated into the main story-line it brilliantly serves as an elaborate smokescreen.
Then there is the story of Byomkesh recovering from illness and humorous conversations involving him, Ajit, and Satyabati that are reminiscent of the best of P.
There are also numerous minor character sketches superbly portrayed. The clue to the puzzle is the appearance of the perpetrator and this clue is mentioned multiple times in story along with other circumstantial evidence. Saradindu confounds us psychologically by making us focus on the peripherals.
Why is Ushanath Ghosh so fearful? Why does he have a fake eye? Why is Ashwini Ghatak filled with vengeance? Why is Malati Debi such a mean lady? Why is the photographer Nakuleswar so shady? As I found myself focusing on the noise, Saradindu kept planting the signals leading to a resolution that was logical, tidy, and most importantly, plausible. Perhaps the most amazing aspect of the story is the sense of misdirection in time. Once the possible suspects are identified, logically the next questions revolve around the perpetrator and the crime.
However, because the removal of the incriminating identification photographs occurred prior to the actual crime, I found myself missing this essential point. But like all logical explanations it makes perfect sense in hindsight. Chitrachor does not feature a spectacular modus operandi or a suave villain and might therefore get overlooked by readers listing their favorite Byomkesh stories.
I would disagree strongly. I think it ranks among the top four or five Byomkesh stories that Saradindu wrote. All rights reserved. The story was also exceedingly popular in the Basu Chatterjee-directed television serial aired on Doordarshan.
Most readers and viewers are intrigued by the innovative weapon used by the criminal in the story. The use of a standard bicycle bell modified into an air-gun capable of firing a steel gramophone pin often called phonograph needle in many parts of the world captured the imagination of fans all over the world.
I enjoyed the concept so much that I actually created the article on on Wikipedia. We will discuss this story in many articles, but our focus here is on the weapon itself. Is it physically possible to create a lethal bicycle-bell gun that obeys the laws of physics? This question is vital to fully appreciating the story. First, let us consider the projectile, the gramophone needle or stylus. Although the use of this sharp object as a weapon is innovative, the use of needles has been attempted many times.
The was a breechloading rifle that fired needle-like projectiles in the s. It fell out of favor because of a short-range. Of course this gun had a powder charge, but the reason it was not used frequently was because of short range of accuracy. In Pother Kanta, the assailant fired from a distance of no more than meters.
In these short distances, sharp needle-like projectiles are very accurate. In fact, other types of needle-guns have existed for years as well. The benefits of shooting sharp needle like objects is that they have a very high muzzle velocity once fired. Another factor that would allow a bell mechanism to shoot gramophone needles is that recoil from such a weapon would likely be minimum. The question of height of the victim comes into play. For victims of different heights, different angles would be necessary, although this could be modified by an expert marksman by tightening the bell.
The question of whether the gramophone needle could pierce the sternum is also an interesting one. With sufficient velocity, it is possible that incident ricochet would allow the needle to pierce the heart, although not cleanly.
So far, the story is quite accurate. The other brilliant bit behind the weapon is that because gramophone needles are usually made of steel and other hard metals as opposed to lead , at close distances and high velocities they might even pierce through and leave through exit wounds.
So, no trace of the projectile would be found inside the body! I have presented a scheme for a possible spring-piston gun mechanism that might be able to propel a gramophone needle towards a victim. Of course, all of my calculations depend on the assumption that relatively high tensions in the spring can be created to generate sufficient kinetic energy upon release.
Nonetheless, as I have demonstrated, if we use a bit of imagination, this sort of weapon is plausible. This is the eighth part of a series of trivia quizzes on Byomkesh Bakshi.

BYOMKESH BAKSHI STORIES ENGLISH PDF
Bataur The word is an amalgamation of satya which means truth, and anweshiwhich means one who seeks. Written by Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay, these stories are classics of s Bengali literature.

An endearing affable man who calls himself a seeker of truth and not a detective, is the stuff of legends sories not unknown to anyone who grew up in the 90s.
