Now after watching quite a few stories,I have understood a bit of Tagore's style and the best part of his writings are the twists and turns.The reader is psychologically involved and he loves to give his readers a thrill with unexpected twists.Its not just plain emotions.And I love it!

Sayanee,do correct me if I'm wrongWink

You said so aptly .. Crescendo I am no expert on his works .. to me understanding his work is like measuring the ocean .. I just try .. I totally agree with your observation here .. Kobiguru himself defined the thing called "short story" in a poem .. I don't remember it line by line but mainly what it said is a short story will always make writers craving for more - doesn't end after ending - there will always be room for reader's imagination .. so one story could have different interpretation.

This is exactly what I felt when I read the story for the first time .. now after so many years I feel for him the way I feel for Shyama in his musical drama - "Shyama" .. but again, Shyama became blind and cruel to save her love and felt guilty afterwards - so this gives her benefit of doubt, what I can't give to Jogyeswar Kundu .. I don't really sympathize but somewhere pity him .. that doesn't mean I don't hate him

This Waris story was heart touching story . Grandfather was heartless person as it appeared from the starting . He was just obsessed by his grandchild . He did bot care about his own others . I felt he lost some of his mental balance when his son left with his child . But latter on you can see the madness in his eyes . Heart breaking story .

At the start of Waaris when the grandfather refuses to give money for his daughter in law's medicines I'd already decided I hate him. But as the story progresses you see the old man all alone and gloomy, missing his grandson to the point that he goes mad...you kind of do feel bad for him...a little may be.

I pity him and at the same time I hate him too for what he did to the kid.AngryCry

One thing I've noticed is that these stories are really unpredictable. One cannot easily guess what will happen next and as Crescendo di said the twists and turns are unexpected.

"Tagore's characters are never artificial creatures.
 They are ordinary
men and women, and children and babies... There were none before or after him, who portrayed these categories of characters with so much insight and sympathy."
 True! Thumbs Up
One of the reasons I'm loving these stories is that there are no villain type negative characters. These characters are grey shaded, they seem very real. It's only the circumstances that shape the stories.
