This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the various chapter of this book. The book began with the normative influence of Bengal. Several Bengali novels, including those by Bankimchandra Chattopadhyay, were translated into Malayalam in the early decades of the 20th century. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi plays an ambivalent role in this distinction of mainstream and revolutionary politics. His position of power within the Congress party prevented him from living the criminalized life of the revolutionaries; in the latter's case, new political and personal relationships were forged under conditions of extreme duress. The revolutionary political ethos defined itself against the dominant strain of both Gandhian Congress nationalism and institutional socialism. In Yashpal however the theme of the revolutionary persists. It remains monumentalized, but less as novel and more as memoir. A critical but respectful analysis must thaw the icon and instead, carefully replenish the spirit of their moral and personal seekings.
