MY CHILDHOOD DAYS by Krishna Giri, XI Science


BOOK NO: 11989

PRICE: Rs. 60

This book gives us a chance to peep into this famous personality’s childhood. Originally written in Bengali under the title of “Chelebela”, the 88 paged translated book gives the reader a feeling very close to the one that comes while reading the original. The simple language is illustrative and very descriptive. One disadvantage of the book is that, it is necessary for the reader to be familiar with little bit of Bengali as the essays contain many Bengali words. This issue too has been solved to some extent by the editor with meanings of certain words and phrases below the page.
Coming to the story, it just goes on with a certain continuity where the author describes his boyhood days and the precious relationships he shared with his surroundings, mother, brothers, “Bouthakruns”(sister-in law), servants and tutors in a lovely fashion. He hated school and routine study. Rabindranath , as a boy kept to himself. His description of – he in his play with his toy, the palanquin is a part I enjoyed thoroughly. His vivid elaborations of his surroundings remind the reader of the old lanes, houses, people and atmosphere of Calcutta during the British period.
The book should be read by one and all for a glimpse of the remarkable person’s remarkable childhood.
