Kabuliwala Book Cover Kabuliwala
Rabindranath Tagore
Fiction
Paperback
Read from the book 'Sahitya ke Vividh Rang'

Introduction: 

This story is among the famous stories written by Rabindranath Tagore. I have read this story in the  book ‘Sahitya ke Vividh Rang’ which has compiled many good stories.
Plot summary: 

Set in the backdrop of Calcutta, the main character of this story is a 5-year-old-girl, Mini and a Kabul based dry-fruit seller man, Kabuliwala.Mini is a sweet and talkative girl who love her Babuji (He is the narrator of this story). Every day in their locality a Kabul based man, Rahmat comes to sell the dry-fruits. The little Mini first get afraid because of the huge bag and robe but slowly she turns to be his friend.During all these, Kabuliwala get arrested for the murder and sentenced to the jail for many years.After many years, Kabuliwala comes to meet the mini who is now the bride. Does Mini recognize him? What is the reason the Kabuliwala comes to meet her after so many years? Read this book to know the heart drenching reality.

Writing style: 

The writer has drawn the mischievousness of Mini, attire of the Kabuliwala and their friendship perfectly. You will find yourself connected with the story till the end.
My perception: 

The master storyteller Rabindranath Tagore has tried to show the hidden pain from the character of Mini and Kabuliwala. This story is heart wrenching and beautiful, you need to read this.

Movie based on this story: 

  • The movie ‘Kabuliwala’ made by Hemin Gupta in the year 1961.
  • The part ‘Kabuliwala’ from the Anuraag Basu made ‘Stories by Ravindranath Tagore’.

  • Thanks for this amazing #giveaway @thebooklingscrate 
I love reading books because it's allow me to sink in a different world which I don't find in real world. I get transported to another realm in minutes . I meet different people, diffrent emotions just sitting at one place. 📚

  • Just started this book today and finished 100 pages in one go. Quite an interesting read till now. ☺
This is the signed book send by the author (swipe to read the beautiful message written by the author)

Here is the blurb of the book :

Sonal Kapoor is a reserved, hardworking entrepreneur running a florist boutique in London. She fights a paradoxical battle between her responsibilities at work and her only family there - her mother. And caught in between these is a story of Sonal's past - a terrible event that got her to flee India. Scars from her troubled past continues to manifest in multitude of ways, reminding her constantly about that horrific event. 
Serendipity happens when Dr. Ryan Percy enters her life and Sonal is challenged in ways she had never imagined. Ryan turns out as everything from Sonal's quintessential definition of the man of her dreams - BUT, Ryan too comes to the party with his own baggage from the past. A pivotal piece in the jigsaw of their lives appears to be missing. Could their puzzling lives be ever completed by each other? Do they complete or destroy each other? .

  • #reading a book is a fun, it simply opens up a new realm where you find peace, sorrow, and happiness. But there comes a certain time in life when the readers don’t just want to read, they can’t simply proceed from 10 pages. So if this thing is happening with you then you are definitely suffering from #readersblock This is similar to the #writersblock but where writer’s block is an acceptable aspect, reader’s block is not.

Reader’s block can happen when you read some really pathetic book (Yes! It happens with me 😐) or are mentally distracted. However, there are many reasons but these two are the primary reasons.

If you are also suffering from reader’s block then do not worry you are not alone! I have shared some easy tips to revive your #readinghabit 📚The link is the bio 📚

#bookreview of #jaya an illustrated retelling of #mahabharat by @devduttmyth 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
This is the second book of the Devdutt Pattanaik I have read after Sita: An illustrated retelling of Ramayana. I have already read various retelling of Mahabharata; however, this retelling is totally different from others. 
This book is not simply the retelling but a treasure of lessons. The author has accumulated various stories which are scattered across the country and given a meaningful essence to the readers
