Tagore s reminiscence of his early childhood days really comes to picture in this book He has savored various instances of his boyhood like schooling, life with his family, his imaginative play and manyduring his reminiscence As he himself describes, the way of the world has entirely changed from those times, in his real time the people not even had the time to take a restful nap Though the world had changed a lot for him when he takes a look back from his age of eighties, the world today is having its shortest breath in the process of change ever in the human history Even 5 10 years seems like a bygone age today So reading his boyhood days was like a quick peep into an India with its calm and peaceful village life Ultimately, the book makes one see the young Tagore who in a way was lonely yet very well embraced by the arms of love by his family members From this book I see that childhood has its own way of relating to everybody I have to say Tagore really touches ones heart with such a poetic delicacy with prose into ones own childhood memories via his The translator has tried her best to not lose the essence of the original work in Bengali which she propounds to be muchtranquil in nature And I suppose her effort has been worthful An informative and enjoyable read about one of the greatest poets of India Loved reading about the various bengali traditions and and happenings in the 1800s The various late evening plays, the naughty pranks and the many strollings under the mango trees in the garden, all provided an overall fun reading A few parts could have been edited to avoid making this account dull at time but nevertheless, worth reading.
