I wanted to make the most of this last post related to book review “Letters to Friend”.
“Jallinwala Bagh” incident mentioned in book convinced me to imagine how the sensitive poet must had gone through tough time of handling such a big cruelty on humanity.
Tagore restored his mental health after renunciation of his knighthood honour as a protest.His words
They hated and killed,and men praised them,But God in shame hastened to hide its memory under the green grass.
This short documentary on you tube will explain more about Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar now is one of famous Tourist place in detail:
The game of atrocity will colour the eyes red to watch its glory and the shining sun will not leave a single wound unnoticed.We tend not to forget the day,feel the intense dance of peace bell,allowing rising tension to accept the friendship of silence.
To walk together in harmony,to draft the dream of freedom,still so many songs are waiting to dance in rythmn with letters of blissfullness.
This small attempt to backtrack mind to feel the level of intensity has surely filled with pearls of emotions for which,I will always be grateful to such a Great Writer Shri Rabindranath Tagore.

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.”

One thing is absolutely clear that this book had been written in very much free time,heavily garlanded with poetry that makes me very jealous of writer simply because I love to feel time.The sluggish pace of story revealed that fragility of bachelor’s club members in keeping the vow of celibacy life long.
The frequent poetry and in between all Rasik Dada(big brother) ,non member of club emerged as the carrier to move story making fun via taking advantage of his age factor,romantic sense and this all got supported by poetry & nature.Although I was feeling that it is getting bit stretchy,but turned this to make rounds of tea/coffee.I would do little more leaking of story, how two new characters admission to Kumar Sabha Nirmala & Abalakanta put pressure on other members via their devotion towards taken social cause task.
In the last 30 pages,story picked the pace welcomed by Aksh again with his all time round joking habit and no doubt rasik dada’s timely comedy interruptions played key role to open doors for all the characters(friends and family) come together under one roof to witness different emotional stage guilty,realisation,happiness.
The last line for Kumar Sabha members ” Don’t expect you will be spared later” gave the last dose of laughter.
