“The Bengali Mangal Kavya:  Defeating Patriarchy?”

 

Though the Mangal texts are religious texts with the typical form of poetries, they represent the material aspects of society. Along with the general statement of social dynamics, these poetries also present a stable social order. Without the divine aspects of these poetries, the significant portion carries socio-economic and political scenario. However, when a scholar studies the Manashamangal, Chandimangal, Shivayan, and Dharmamangal, s/he could notice the ‘Defeating Patriarchy of question on gender forms’.

As in Mangal Kavyas devoted to other folk goddesses, the eventual image here is that of convergence into the Adyashakti, the Universal Female Power, which represents Creation, Preservation and Destruction. Thus, folk and classical traditions merge at the conclusion of the text, illustrating a powerful resurgence of the cult of the Goddess over the eroding forces of patriarchy.
