The Broken Nest(First Phase of Book Review)

Initially, I was thinking to review this book in only one post,but as I am reading more and more,the way the characters are playing around and story is setting different interesting plot,it is unfair to do that.

First of all,I would start seeing this story from the perspective of the women,who is not into complaining nature for husband Bhupati for being completely immersed in work because Charu’s thirst for literature/studying keeps her upbeat to life and that’s why entry of third character Amal(brother-in-law) in her life who has same interest sows the seeds of relationship.

Somehow,I am not willing give any name to this relationship because the way Tagore has given the blossoming nature to this,free from obtaining any standing in each other’s lives, it is simply based on fascination of ploughing land of poetry. I would describe in my words,as the story progresses the playfulness increases reflects writer’s affinity towards when in relationship people look for one excitement after another based bearing each other’s tantrums, making deals,also how entry of third character Manda(charu’s sister-in law) adds more twist,it all established beautiful links to make a memory book.

In between all of this how secretly a nest was building both in charu’s and bhupati’s heart and how they felt that when it was broken via different life situations.

I am posting link to order this book either via kindle or paper.The sample of the book can be read via kindle before you order.

First phase of Book Review

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

 

 

In Books Again(Early Phase of Book Review)

tagorebooks

In books again,I must say that I am glad to get into this habit again,absolutely cherishing it.In this blog ,I want to write early part of the review.How it all started,interesting it is.

When I saw trailer of Stories by Rabindranath Tagore(Nobel Peace Prize Winner),I fell in love with it straightway,suddenly struck to me,why for long time I didn’t pick up books and explore these great writers,I am missing so much life.It was like beauty touched me,can’t wait to immerse myself into life.So I watched the first story Binodini,I wondered no doubt director and the whole team has done fantastic job takes you to old Bengal setting in late nineties ,but just imagine how engaging it would be,if I read the book.I will straight fly into writer’s imagination world and sit there as an Audience.

Flower of Tears

Oh Vrindavan

   I have no idea why I am so addicted to think more and more about you.

Free from past, present and future thoughts, love is now the only demand.

Can’t claim equivalent to gopis who forgot dry eyes as Krishna was the only hope of life. Oh Vrindavan, I see myself far behind promising that I belong to you,so forgive me for all the inaction towards you, cover me in your dust  to serve allowing me to  shower you with flowers of my tears.

Vrindavan-The Only Soul Place in the World

Vrindavan

Finally after so many long years of waiting, Shri Radhe Rani allowed me to see & feel Vrindavan, the highest spiritual place in the world. The reason for saying this because Vrindavan is more Radhe Rani’s place and in obvious terms she decides who will enter Vrindavan. Researching more about this why it is like that I found an interesting reason.

In separation to Krishna shri Radhe Rani cried so much for about 100 years that her tears actually created a big lake in vrindavan, an example of true love which soul always seek far beyond for than our limited mind understanding, puts  Radhe Rani naturally in authoritative  position  that who should be entering Vrindavan.

Since I have returned to my home, not a single day passes when I don’t think of Vrindavan. Vrindavan is absolutely not an ordinary place, I completely feel that even if I get chance to be on most beautiful place on earth, I would say that this can’t be equal to vrindavan. In one way it can be said that it just home sickness or anything else like too religious but if I am feeling that all my questions of why this& that or unnecessary emotions have taken pause, constantly hearing chanting of  a name which is giving shape to my energy, calmness, blissfulness, intelligence  then this place has something great to offer me, I just need to closely monitor my happiness level graph.

Completely immersed in self sufficient  happiness indicated that to avoid any sort of  diversion would require some sort of constant activity, which is none other than start doing selfless service for Vrindavan.The only remote tool, I can think of  is writing, offering my words onto the dust of vrindavan requesting to shri Radhe rani to forgive my limited mind and heart as they are absolutely useless and allow this soul to be truly  in your service.

Further talking about service, I want to highlight about two organisation associated with noble objectives.

Friends of Vrindavan and Food for Life organisation working hard to make vrindavan clean, green, more rich in culture and most important preserving the heritage. The recycling programs, constantly cleaning of garbage ,organising programs to spread awareness, planting trees etc. are quite impressive and I firmly believe that it will grow further. As they are dependent on public support to carry on their operations, please find more details of their work through following links and support them if you wish as such.

A Day In Vrindavan

I completely feel Vrindavan is not an ordinary place.The reason why I am desperate to go  is to  get easily soaked  in the name of Krishna from head to feet.I strongly agree that when I will fully meet the requirements of entry then only effortlessly will be opening eyes looking the devotional sky of Krishna’s mercy.

Oh Krishna whatever is the reason but feeling of Vrindavan through this gives me satisfaction of selfless service unto your lotus feet.Oh shri Hari if I can’t go there for the time being,then please support me to transform my heart into vrindavan allow to build a temple decorated with garlands of emotions,lightning by the eternal bliss and the most important is offering you my tears.
