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.”

Missing you my lovely friend as you are the only one who understands me well.
Whatever I am going through you can easily sense, this is what makes you special irrespective of all tense.
Things can’t be always perfect,so I am as well but our friendship always grow is the only hope to live well.
Fun,Laugh and wiping each other’s tears are the reasons of togetherness, so that we can see the blessings showered upon us by world desired to build happy memories in each other’s lovingness.
This short story of Udhav who was best friend and devotee of Krishna explains very beautifully knowledge becomes not just boring after a certain point,it becomes source of proud,which harms the personality . Udhav who claimed himself very knowledgeable person and loving Krishna, easily became a proud person which was leading to degrading of personality.
The beauty of true association with Krishna is he fully takes care of you and lets you free from any personality impurity.Krishna immediately sent him Vrindavan(highest spiritual place in the world) asked him to give message to all his loving gopis. He instantly followed the orders and left for Vrindavan.
Vrindavan’s gopis madly went to Udhav to inquire about Krishna,they soon started complaining about Krishna,asking several questions about his lifestyle,along with tears in their eyes.Seeing all this Udhav got initial impression of gopis i.e.full of ignorance and felt they are just wasting their time.As a great scholar,he immediately started explaining about Karma,life,death,and insisting importance of reading scriptures.All gopis found him extremely boring, they straightway said”what they would do by gaining all knowledge when their minds are always occupied by memories of Krishna “.
These long lectures on life,death are full of dissatisfaction if you are not loving Krishna by thinking of his different leelas. Udhav was deeply affected by the way he saw gopis fully immersed in unconditional love for Krishna and specially when he met Radha.Gopis taught Udhav to fall in love,lose yourself let everything go, to feel melting of soul just like when a river loses itself when it meets sea.This is feature of true devotee who lets everything go and live only for Unconditional Love which is nothing but Krishna.
Udhav shredded all his knowledge proudness and started feeling like gopis and returned to Krishna by chanting his name along with Vrindavan soil’s dust on his head.
