|Copy right A Homemaker's Utopia|
The lives of Apu and Durga made me recollect so many memories associated with my childhood..It is all about how the village kids enjoy every bit in their little lives..Their struggles,wishes,hopes and disappointments and all..There are some beautiful parts which can not go out of my mind.The way little Apu sleeps on the floor when he was an infant,The picnik organized by Durga and cooking in the middle of the forest and the kids running in the fields to see the train atleast once in their life time etc are wonderfully described....These kids are very innocent like flowers....How beautiful it is to learn from the nature !!! Really this concept astonished me.The natural beauty of the village got captured in my mind..On the whole the book is like a silent lake,hiding so many stories in it.
I got the Telugu version of the book from HBT....here is the link...
