19 April, 1884. Kadambari Devi takes a massive dose of opium to end her life. She is Jyotirindranath Tagore’s wife, Rabindranath Tagore’s sister-in-law, his beloved Notun Bouthan. She died two days later, on 21st April. Almost immediately after Kadambari’s death, Satyendranath Tagore’s wife, Mejo Bouthakurun Jnanadanandini Devi and Jyotirindranath left on a sea voyage. They even take Rabindranath along. Why does Kadambari end her life? What led her to take such a step? Does she tell her story in her suicide note? The suicide note has been lost for 127 years! Let us think that it has been chanced upon only recently.
No, it’s not exactly a suicide note. It’s a long epistle. Burnt pieces of paper, almost difficult to read.
Who was it to save the remaining letter from the scorching fire? Rabindranath? Did he then defy his father?

Let us suppose that after a long and painstaking effort, it is finally possible to decipher the near-burnt last letter of Kadambari Devi. And now it is for the world to listen.

"Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

Birgitta Johansson

"Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

"Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
