I am so glad that I have finished some of the stories out of 21,so far I have read 10.No doubt, I am cherishing the book reading habit .Along with reading, brain’s switches on the ability to imagine like set up of the story environment,character,emotions,lots more etc.It took me some time to develop the flow of reading Hindi book after a long time.
The stories I have read.
1. Vida 2. Pinjar 3. Patni ka patr 4. Pashani 5. Khoya hua moti 6. Kavi ka hardaya
7. Kavi ki kavita 8. Yeh savtrantra 9. Seemant 10. Nayi Roshini
In summary definitely, I would say that writer made the most of attributes like full moon light,sunlight,took help of nature to describe romantic scenes which is worth reading it,beautiful work packed with colours of blissfulness.
Some stories has sad endings but still would recommend it because the way story begins and rides through defining the characters ,their journey of love,laughter,emotions gives very rich feeling of life.One story, when I was reading it ended in very unexpected surprisingly manner that was something a big turn for me but ultimately would say very entertaining overall. Just two stories out of 10 disappointed me .I didn’t understand what it was all about absolutely didn’t develop any sense but that is not stopping me at all ,can’t wait to read more.
There are some lines in one story which quite struck me, in Pashani story.In these lines explained how a situation of life divided the character Pashani in two equal parts(psychologically/mentally),just like a sharp tool made by a skilled tool-builder which can cut a person in two such equal parts i.e. hard to realise by a third person but when it is shaken it actually breaks into two parts.
All these stories can be read in English as well.
So in the end I am posting a trailer of TV series program ‘Stories by Rabindranath Tagore’ which I loved it and that kick started all.Enjoy
