||Duration: 25 Minutes
Sanyasi is a story of a man who sits eternally thirsty
besides a perpetual stream of sweet water. His life is
always unsatisfied even though he has found sweet
undying love of two women… his two wives Shanti and
Jayanti. He is a man who looks with mistrust and doubt
at all beautiful feelings like love, faith, desire and
sensitive relationships. He sacrifices everything
meaningful in his life at the altar of this blazing
mistrust and lives his life wandering eternally… bereft
of any destination.
The serial Sanyasi is based on a classical work of the
same name by the renowned Littérateur Pandit Ilachandra
Joshi. This was the most popular literary work of its
period and even today there is no dearth of people who
wish to read this novel. The novel is a collector's item
with any connoisseur of literature. It has become a
tradition that every lover of literature must
essentially have a copy of Sanyasi as a part of his
The novel Sanyasi is basically a love story. The male
protagonist is a Sanyasi who has two wives. Both his
wives love him immensely. But though our protagonist has
a good and a gentle nature he is absolutely self
centric. Finally our protagonist decides to head towards
renunciation. Even here his renunciation ends up being
just an empty delusion.
Sanyasi as a unique novel with a universal appeal.This
novel explores human relationships and the relations
between a man and a woman not only in the sense of the
Indian male but the universal male whose mindset is set
upon monogamous relations, and his human frailties.
Every man desires that his woman should submit herself
entirely to his will. The man wishes that the woman
should perpetually strive for his happiness and pleasure
and this has been desired by man from times immemorial.
This craving existed thousands of years ago, it exists
today, and shall exist five hundred years in the future.
However much a man may study and acquire knowledge or
engross himself in high philosophy... his basic nature
and mindset shall always remain unchanged. And this very
mindset and emotions of the man is the primary emotion
of the serial Sanyasi. For this very reason the novel
shall always hold a universal appeal. The second basis
of this novel is that no matter how much a woman strives
for the man she loves, the man in essence shall never be
satisfied. Examples of such men abound in our scriptures
and religious epics. And such men exist even in the
present day. Sita had surrendered her entire existence
for Ram and yet she had to go through the Agni-Pariksha.
Now the question remains... how long will a woman accept
this suffering. Is there a limit to her endurance? And
what will happen when the limit of endurance is
breached. All this forms the basis of the story.
