Devdas (Bengali: দেবদাস Debdash; Hindi: देवदास; Urdu: دیوداس) (also called Debdas) (1917) is a Bengali novella by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay.


Plot summary

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

The childhood friendship of Devdas (who is from a wealthy family) and Paro (Parvati) (whose family was not as well off) blossoms into love as they grow up. Devdas' father does not approve of the relationship due to difference in their families' statuses in village and the caste. (Devdas is of the Brahmin caste and Paro of the Merchant caste.)

Devdas realizes he cannot live without Paro and seeks her out, but she has already been married off to an older man with children. Devdas falls into despair and drinks to excess; then he meets a courtesan, Chandramukhi, who falls in love with him and looks after him. During his alcohol-instilled dreams, he frequently dreams of Paro and Chandramukhi. The two women replace each other in his dreams, so it is left unclear, if, in the end, Devdas overcomes his love for Paro and finds some peace by falling in love with Chandramukhi.

Translations of the novella

  • A new English translation was released in 2002 by Penguin India. It was translated from the Bengali into English by Sreejata Guha (who also wrote the introduction).
