Pather Dabi caused an enormous furore following its serialization in a Bengali monthly- Banganai. The story of Sabyasachi, the charismatic leader of the military organization, Pather Dabi, and the powerful woman characters around him- their inter-relationship, agony, and ecstasy stirred people.
The book was not a piece of political propaganda, as the British regime held it, but a work of art. However, the bitter criticism of the government contained in it made the rulers issue a proscription.
