Tagore’s Post Office represents a young boy who has received the call of the open road. He seeks freedom from the comfortable enclosure of habits sanctioned by the prudent and from walls of rigid opinion built for him by the respectable.

Introduction:

This book comes as a giveaway prize from the super talented book blogger Padmaja, The bookish tales and Niyogi books. So at first, I would like to thank them for giving me a chance to read another masterpiece of Rabindranath Tagore.

Summary:

Amal is a young boy, who has been adopted by his uncle after the death of his parents. He is an observant boy with a great imagination, who wants to see everything in his life.

Unfortunately, he is suffering from an incurable disease and the doctor has advised him to be indoor to avoid the waves of winter.

Being a child, he wants to go out and play, but he has to be confined to the home. He sits near the window and talks to every passerby.

His innocent talk and perceptive helped many people to change their view towards their work.

In front of their house, there is a newly built post office and after knowing the purpose of the post office, Amal hoped to get a letter from the king.

The ending of this play is sudden just like our life.

Writing style:

I always feel pity to not able to read Bengali language and I have to read Tagore’s work in translated version. However, the translation was good, and the original essence was intact throughout the book. There are very few and notable characters in the books.

My perception:

This play is brilliantly written. Amal is the character which will remain in your heart for forever. The author has beautifully written the conversation between Amal and passerby. This play teaches how a small and motivating talk can change someone’s life? How one need to be optimistic in life? How beautiful our life and nature is, we just need to change our way of looking. After reading this book, you should watch the adaption of this play by Satyajit Ray. A profound and precious piece of writing and I am really glad to read it.

Until next time, Keep reading πŸ™‚Β

I have read this book last year but wasn’t able to write a review due to various things in personal life. The author has provided the copy of this book in exchange for an honest book review. So at first, I would like to thanks him.
.
This book has 15 chapters; each describes a lie which we tend to speak in our life. Though we don’t realize these little lazy lies are the main hurdle in our success.
.
This is a short book, enveloped with impressive life lessons! Totally recommend to those who want to get best from their life.

First of all, I would like to thanks @writersmelon and @harpercollinsin for the copy. 😊The first thing which attracts me towards this book is the alluring book cover. The contrasting use of black and white colors with two human figures on the bicycle made me read this book. 
I have never read any dystopian novel before thus the concept of this book was totally new to me. This book starts on a very interesting note which makes you flip the pages. .
