Mashi and Other Stories :: Book review

A couple of years ago, I stumbled upon Project Gutenberg and found a list of books penned by Rabindranath Tagore. The e-books were lying unnoticed until I stored them on my android tablet and begun reading. 

Mashi and Other Stories is a collection of short stories in an elegant style that describes the lives of people, rich and poor, young and old, and how an incident becomes a turning point, which leaves behind a huge impact and scar. 

The most interesting fact about Tagore's writing is that, every story has an ending which leads to two contradictory conclusions. What you infer is left is assumed to be true. This makes me adore the his works and I completed the book at a single go.

Skeptical, I am if I have interpreted the endings correctly, for each story is thought provoking.

  1. I agree..I read Choker Bali some time ago, and that's exactly what I felt.
