Description
Back of the Book

My Boyhood Days (Chhelebela, 1940) is Tagore’s second memoir of his childhood days, written when he was nearing eighty. He amusingly called his early days as being under “servocracy”, his word for the reign of servants. He describes, without a trace of self-pity the Spartan life he had to lead under his father’s instruction. He was a lonely boy and his only playmate was his own soul. In this atmosphere he found two of the major motives of his creative life-joy and mystery. This sense of wonder and this delight in the seemingly commonplace experiences of boyhood helped him become a great poet.

One of India’s most cherished renaissance figures, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) put us on the literary map of the world when his Gitanjali was awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 1913. A poet’s poet, he is a maker of not only modern Indian literature but also the modern Indian mind and civilization. Myriad-minded, he was a poet, short writer, novelist, dramatist, essayist, painter and composer of songs. Gandhi called him the “Great Sentinel”. He world wide acclaim as a social, political, religious and aesthetic thinker, innovator in education and a champion of the “One world” idea makes him a living presence.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
