    Writing one year before he died, Tagore s reminiscences about his childhood come off as very nostalgic and evocative The youngest of thirteen children, Tagore was a much loved child, not only by his parents but by his elder brothers and sisters He also made a very close friend in his sister in law, Kadambari Devi, as they were pretty much children together I loved how Tagore contrasts life in 1940 as compared to the last decades of the 1800s, and bemoans the loss of greenery and old style Writing one year before he died, Tagore s reminiscences about his childhood come off as very nostalgic and evocative The youngest of thirteen children, Tagore was a much loved child, not only by his parents but by his elder brothers and sisters He also made a very close friend in his sister in law, Kadambari Devi, as they were pretty much children together I loved how Tagore contrasts life in 1940 as compared to the last decades of the 1800s, and bemoans the loss of greenery and old style life Of course, you would expect an 80 year old man to become evocative and lyrical about his childhood even if it was a horrible one, and Tagore s certainly wasn t I loved the contrast between the cultures of the times Women were no longer observing purdah, people had electricity, not to mention chocolates It is hardly surprising that Tagore went on to win the Nobel He was schooled in music, wrestling, drawing, English, gymnastics, in addition to the usual school curriculum Several of his brothers were already writers and composers, though I am not sure if any of their work remains The family was in the forefront of change, what with abolishing purdah in their home, sending girls to school, and so on My Boyhood Days covers Tagore s younger days until he goes to England I really enjoyed this and am looking forward to reading thedetailed My Reminiscences at some point soon Even if you aren t really interested in Tagore, this book is worth reading because of how beautifully evocative it is

    This reminiscence by Tagore of his boyhood days when Calcutta was an emerging metropolis and capital of British India takes us to a Calcutta whose streets used to be lit up by gas lamps, where horse carriages took the elite around, which housed dreams of better lives for those on the outskirts Both is Bengali and in English, Tagore s writing characteristically shows a depth of nostalgia and fondness for what is gone In this world of Calcutta, Tagore places his lonely childhood which ironically This reminiscence by Tagore of his boyhood days when Calcutta was an emerging metropolis and capital of British India takes us to a Calcutta whose streets used to be lit up by gas lamps, where horse carriages took the elite around, which housed dreams of better lives for those on the outskirts Both is Bengali and in English, Tagore s writing characteristically shows a depth of nostalgia and fondness for what is gone In this world of Calcutta, Tagore places his lonely childhood which ironically fostered an imagination that led to the composition of invaluable works of literature He takes readers on a journey of how a huge zamindari household functioned during the time, especially from the perspective of an adolescent This short read will be fascinating to those who want to knowabout old Calcutta and Tagore s early life as well as another chance to experience the master s art

    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 tod 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.

    When poetry is in your blood since childhood , no doubt you get noble for that afterwards These are basically memoirs of childhood and teenage days of Tagore They let us travel to city of joy during late 19the century Beautiful is very shallow word for anything created by Gurudev
