The Post Office(A boy’s paradise to be life)

I am starting this blog with an apology for all the readers because they might find this review not capable to capture the level of vibrancy that this young boy Amal holds.

Despite of illness,the boy was full of enthusiasm/energy  talking to different people via room window.His conversations were full of questions & answers so joyfully that actually made other people felt so divine about their work which they considered not much value.The talkative boy whoever he met like curd man,flower-seller,took no time to imagine small small details like how curd yells to sell,how his wife make cow stand in morning must be ful of fun.

I felt the need to watch it as well and this video definitely does full justice to the reading,unfortunately this is not available with English subtitles.

My favourite part of story when he expressed his desire to be like the man whom he met seeking work carrying brass pot and pile of bamboo woods on his head.He clearly was even more excited if he fails to find work because then he can watch that tired man sitting under fig tree,washing his feet in river stream,eating his lunch,it simply implies writer’s message that whatever struggle time of life is there ,it has nothing to do with opportunity you can always create to sing in tune with life.

His ultimate desire to be postman to deliver king’s message of love to houses in different countries,represents the fact, he just wanted to be ambassador of profound life unblocking our limited view towards normal daily small and simple things  of life.

Dhai Aakhar Prem Ka Review(shesh rokkha)

This simple, comedy story written by Rabindranath Tagore is must watch episode of TV series Stories by Rabindranath Tagore.I tried to look for book but can’t find it,even though searched by original name of  Shesh Rokkha of story, but I couldn’t stop myself to post my views when I watched the story on TV.

I liked the slow-pace start of the story in which all poetry lovers gathered in chandrakath’s house ,taking dips in poetry and the way chandrakath’s wife turned around looking slightly miffed offering them rice snacks on lunch time despite of that how lovingly he asked her “What is this”?The fun part starts from the name confusion and how the characters play around,doing poetry for their lovers and in between all that the newly wed Binod Kamal observe in what ways they are different.

This preview of 7 minutes will provide wings to imagination about its beauty.

My favourite part is when kamal had a quick turn as soon as she stepped out of room after serving binod tea ,she saw binod pouring tea in plants,too good.At last when all the confusion got resolved,the end challenge was how to pacify parents genuinely asked to clear all this mess.

I must say when this book was written,it still seems to be very relevant nowadays,especially the characters of women. I can’t find the book but posting the link of classic short stories about women that would generate more idea/excitement of Tagore’s treasure chest of stories.
