"And yet it was in Bengal that I was born, that I grew up, that the first chapter of my life was spent. Back then, in that distant childhood, could I ever have imagined myself as I am now? Nor, for that matter, can I now picture that boy, that shy young man, as the first edition of myself. All those memories seemed to have been wiped clean, I thought I had forgotten them all-- but suddenly, after our conversation, it's all come back so clearly."
This was a relatively short and simple read about four middle-aged Indian men, strangers, sharing a train compartment. After witnessing a young newlywed couple, they decide to tell each other stories (four in total) about first loves in their youth.
I found the stories quite readable and compelling, funny at times too. Each story looked at a different aspect of love, as well as being interesting looks at nostalgia and memories. There was also the constant reminder about how back in the day marriage was the be all and the end all of a lot of people's lives.
Read information about the authorBuddhadeva Bose (also spelt Buddhadeb Bosu) (Bengali: বুদ্ধদেব বসু) was a major Bengali writer of the 20th century. Frequently referred to as a poet, he was a versatile writer who wrote novels, short stories, plays and essays in addition to poetry. He was an influential critic and editor of his time. He is recognized as one of the five poets who moved to introduce modernity into Bengali poetry. It has been said that since Tagore, perhaps, there has been no greater talent in Bengali literature. His wife Protiva Bose was also a writer.
Buddhadeva Bose received the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1967 for his verse play Tapaswi O Tarangini, received the Rabindra Puraskar in 1974 for Swagato Biday(poetry) and was honoured with a Padma Bhushan in 1970.
