The right page of pageno:80 from the book “Letters to A Friend” by Rabindranath Tagore has this sketch of writer,tried my best to do full justice with such a masterpiece.I was nervous to start with ,if I can’t draw such deep facial expressions.Finally I completed today and posting it for the readers.Please press like button,if you like the sketch or comment if you want say something.
Tagore’s close association with life’s consciousness seems to be pouring so much thoughts related to easiness/simplicity of life that we need to ponder upon.His clarity of thoughts draws picture in my mind that he is unlocking the gates of joys with full consideration which is beautifully explained starting from page number 78 till 80.
“I long to discover some fairy-land of holidays-not a world where all weekdays are Sundays-but where Sundays are not at all needed,where all duties look delightfully undutiful like clouds bearing rain,appearing perfectly in consequential.”

This book is definitely full of comic sense and on the top of that the work of poetry is an added gem.
Now the question is how it proves?
The setting of story starts from the conversation of Aksh(husband) and Puro(wife) gives headstart in terms how Aksh previous member of a bachelor’s group vowed to never think about women ended up in marriage.
Aksh ‘s character did the very good job of filling the conversation with four lines of poetry every time when other characters are confused or in slight anger especially his wife. I would agree,A merrier person that even the married men will envy,these lines in book completely suits him.
I couldn’t find any media attachment in English. The dialogues between Aksh and prospective bride grooms were not just hilarious but reveals the full hippocratic nature which ended by another funny statement of Aksh that “as soon I slapped their back their tails began to wiggle”.The story had been to the point so far and a family’s way of doing comic sense reminds me time when brothers,sisters and other relatives all sit together,pull each other legs from memories or from a family situation.
Reading this book reminds me of the time when I was watching TV series of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai,a family comedy,in which different characters or different situations fueled more excitement and laughter.I don’t have relevant media but this trailer of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai(second version) will give you idea the crazy stuff I am enjoying.
Buy/Borrow:I am posting the amazon affiliate link as well or it is available to borrow from your local library,then I must recommend.
