Nastanirh is a 1901 Bengali novella by Rabindranath Tagore.
Tagore was one of the authors who would often put his female characters at the fore of his stories. His work explored the banality of our society’s hyper-moralism and hypocrisy when it came to treating women, and the women in his stories, in turn, questioned everything – from untouchability to the caste system and even religious jingoism.
Nastanirh (The Broken Nest) was adapted into the film Charulata – perhaps the finest example of what society does to a woman’s potential by choosing to relegate her to the confines of her home, tying her down with stereotypes and by teaching her to strip off her own ambitions.
Tagore's Nastanirh concerns what happens in an upper-class Bengali household when the neglected young wife; Charulata of a workaholic newspaper editor (Bhupati) develops an unsettlingly close relationship with her husband's younger male cousin (Amal).
