Sab Kichu Bhene Pare (Things Fall Apart) is a 1995 Bengali novel written by Bangladeshi writer Humayun Azad. It was first published in February 1995 by Agamee Prakashani in the Ekushey Book Fair from Dhaka, Bangladesh.
In this novel, Azad has published stories and sequences of physical and emotional relationships between men and women; which lead to various questions, and often be seen in the conventional society. Considering the structural and point of view, it is a modern biographical novel in Bengali literature.
Seems the book's title has a similar tune from Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, written in 1958; which main theme concerns pre- and post-colonial life in late nineteenth century in Nigeria. The title of the novel comes from a line in W. B. Yeats' poem "The Second Coming".

- Feroza – Mahbub's wife
- Archy – Mahbub-turquoise couple's daughter
- Rowshon – Mahbub's childhood girlfriend
- Ananya – Mahbub's adult-life female friend (younger than Mahbub)
Through the context of the novel, family events emerge as a result of the emergence of the rural society of Bangladesh, as well as the socio-economic conditions of Bengal.
