My Boyhood Days (Chhelebela, 1940) is Tagore’s second memoir of his childhood days, written when he was nearing eighty.  He describes, without a trace of self-pity, the spartan life he had to lead under his father’s instruction.

Description

 

He amusingly called his early days as being under “servocracy”, his word for the reign of servants.

 

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 experience of boyhood helped him become a great poet.
