    One thought on “The Post Office”

    1. This play in three acts was written in Bengal in 1911, not long after Tagore lost his son, daughter and wife to disease. In 1940, the evening before Paris fell to the Nazis, Andre Gide's French translation of this play was read over the radio. Two years after, in a Warsaw ghetto, a Polish version was the last play performed in the orphanage of Janusz Korczak who, when asked why he chose the play, said: "eventually one had to learn to accept serenely the angel of death." Within a month, he and hi [...]

    2. বইটা আমার অনেক প্রিয়। জীবনের বেশ কিছু গুরুত্বপূর্ণ প্রশ্নের জন্য আমার যে উত্তর তাতে এই বইটির প্রভাব রয়েছে। সব প্রশ্নগুলো একসাথে মনে পড়ে না, যেগুলো মনে পড়ছে সেগুলো লিখিকোনটা সুন্দর?চার দেয়া [...]

    3. নাটক পড়ছি গত কদিন। ডাকঘর দেখেছি আগে, এবার পড়া হলো। ' ছোট্ট রাজকুমার' এর রবীন্দ্রভাষ্য বলবো আমি একে। বলাই বাহুল্য, এটাই ভালো লেগেছে বেশি।

    4. A very lovely play. It shows you how a child's positive outlook on life can change many things, including the disillusionment of a vendor and the misanthropy of a headman who takes pleasure in nothing but bullying people. Well, that's one thing it can show - I bet almost everybody sees something different in this play. I think this is the first time I read something of so obviously universal appeal, there's really something for everyone in every age group in it - that in itself is quite amazing. [...]

    5. "জানি, আমি খুব জানি। আমি সাত ভাই চম্পার খবর জানি। আমার মনে হয়, আমাকে যদি সবাই ছেড়ে দেয়, তা হলে আমি চলে যেতে পারি -- খুব ঘন বনের মধ্যে যেখানে রাস্তা খুঁজে পাওয়া যায় না। সরু ডালের সব- আগায় যেখানে মনুয় [...]

    6. So Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize in Literature, and a number of publications (including the New York Times) made a big hubbub about him being the first musician to win the prestigious literary prize. But then I read an article that called out a resounding "Bullshit!" And the article explained that Dylan was not the first musician to win the Nobel in Literature, and it went on to tell the story of Rabindranath Tagore, a Bengali polymath who is sometimes referred to as "The Bard of Bengal," and on [...]

    7. The abrupt ending of the play, though surprising, is similar to the unwarranted arrival of death. The innocence of children, and how the same innocence is kindlled in grown-ups when in company of children are beautifully portrayed in words. The play picks up pace towards the end, and ironically, only the herald of the anticipated arrives in time to show Amal a glimpse of a gilted dream, before he slides into an eternal slumber and the play is curtained. There is an Amal in all of us - there is a [...]

    8. This is a very brief Bengali play in 2 acts, first published in 1912. A young boy is dying, and out the window of his house he can see a new post office that has just opened in the town. The boy talks to anyone who passes his window, and he quickly becomes convinced that the king has sent a letter to him that will arrive soon at the new post office. Essentially a story about living in the moment and transforming the ordeal of suffering through imagination and the art of storytelling, this play e [...]

    9. ডাকঘর নাটকটি বিশ্বকবি রবীন্দ্রনাথ ঠাকুরের একটি সাঙ্কেতিক নাটক।যেখানে যা অপ্রকাশ্য তা শেষ পর্যন্ত অপ্রকাশিত ই ছিল।এখানে প্রধান চরিত্র অমল।যার মা সেই ছোটবেলাতেই মারা যায়।এবং বাবা মারা যা [...]

    10. I was about to rate this 4 stars but I couldn't resist. As I was reading, I couldn't help feeling how this play has clear mystical undertones to it. Little Amal could be Tagore himself, the Tagore of Gitanjali, anxious to leave the narrow, claustrophobic confinements of his "room", anxious for spiritual exaltation, anxious for "the King's letter". I can't help associating the King's letter to the postman metaphors of Ashfaq Ahmed in Mann Chalay Ka Sauda, as I can't help seeing this play as somet [...]

    11. "ডাকঘর"মাত্র ২৩ পৃষ্ঠার, ৩ টি অংকের, ৩৩৯ সংলাপের কবিগুরু রবীন্দ্রনাথ ঠাকুরের ছোট একটি সাংকেতিক নাটক। কিন্তু এই ছোট নাটকটি দ্বিতীয় বিশ্বযুদ্ধের সময় ১০৫ বার জার্মানিতে বিশেষ করে নাৎসী বাহিনী [...]

    12. After Death, There's LifeThis play by the Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore is one of those pieces of literature that truly deserves to be remembered and admired as it was in London in 1914, when William Butler Yeats remarked that this little play " very perfectly constructe and conveys to the right audience an emotion of gentleness and peace." To Western eyes, at first glance, a play about a dying child may see morbid. The reader and theatregoer quickly realize, however, that Amal, the moribun [...]

    13. The Post Office is a play about Amal, an eight year old boy who is terminally ill confined indoors by the family physician. His only contact with the outside world is through his window. Amal notices the village post office. He hopes the King sends him a letter. The town headman mocks and plays a practical joke on the ill Amal. Amal dreams of a future free of confinement. Tagore's The Post Office is a play depicting free spirit, the joy of the open road free of bondage.The Post Office is poignan [...]

    14. সেদিন রবি ঠাকুরের আত্মজীবনী নিয়ে ঋতুপর্ণ ঘোষের একটি ডকুমেন্টারি দেখলাম। সেখানে ডাকঘরের কথা উল্লেখ করা হয়েছে। সেই থেকেই 'পড়বো' 'পড়বো' মাথায় ঘুরছে! ডাকঘরের কথা এর আগেও শুনেছি, পড়া আর হয় নি। তাই [...]

    15. simple, innocent and a beautiful little play by RabindraJi. Amal is a lovely little child, dying or rather living against his looming death. His vivaciousness and love for life is infectious but that is how a kid is supposed to be. his zest for life affects all and how he rejoices in every man passing by his window makes the book a funny read. The book is small but refreshing. A child's innocence teaches you how you should value life in all its hues and at all junctures. Amal has no reason to b [...]

    16. This is a nice story about a curious little boy in a state of delirium due to disease and of adults who indulge him. I don't know why people are saying that it is about someone finally accepting death and all that, because for me, the boy never gave up on living and kept making plans for himself right till the end. I found that weird that people think it is about accepting death, when it seems to be the opposite. Or maybe I'm wrong. Hard to guess with metaphorical stories; every interpretation i [...]

    17. This is unlike any book that I have ever read. So simple, yet oceans of meaning deep within. I had to read this book twice over the next morning. This truly shows the genius that Rabindranath Tagore was. The child Amal is true representation of human mind which is always eager to travel far and wide, is dreamy and looking to escape from its current situation in the first available opportunity. Madhav represents the adult mindset which is always playing safe and averse to risk.It's a must read fo [...]

    18. مسرحية قصيرة لطاغور ذلك الشاعر الهندي الكبير، وبدأت هذه المسرحية بمقدمة جميلة عن طاغور من طفولته وحياته بعد إن صار شاعراً ونال الجوائز المسرحية عن ذلك الطفل المريض الذي يجب عليه ملازمة المنزل، ومن يقابل وهو في المنزل وماهي أحلامه و إلى النهاية الجميلة العجيبة

    19. It's short, simple and gripping. Loved the simplicity in style, language and characters. Would have liked to read more.

    20. Tagore es un escritor que todo mundo debe de leer. Su hermosa narrativa llena de formas poéticas, la fluidez y sus historias reflexivas y simbólicas hacen que cada obra suya te llene de dicha e incontables sentimientos. "El cartero del Rey" es un breve y bello poema, en forma teatral, que nos narra la historia del pequeño Amel, un niño huérfano adoptado por su tío Madhav. El médico de Amel le prohíbe salir de casa para evitar que el sol del otoño y la humedad le hagan daño. El curioso [...]

    21. The play, “The Post Office” follows a sick boy who yearns for a letter from the king. Although a deception, in reality a herald of his arrival does appear, and the king is on his way. This heartbreaking, tender story was a favorite of some of the great literary minds of the twentieth century. It is a short work, and deserving of attention.See my other reviews here!

    22. "আমাকে তোমার মতো ঐরকম দই বেচতে শিখিয়ে দিয়ো। ঐরকম বাঁক কাঁধে নিয়ে -- ঐরকম খুব দূরের রাস্তা দিয়ে আমি কক্‌খনো পণ্ডিত হব না। আমি তোমাদের রাঙা রাস্তার ধারে তোমাদের বুড়ো বটের তলায় গোয়ালপাড়া থেকে দই [...]

    23. This is a wonderful piece of work! A small read which leaves an impression of what a gentle behaviour can get you, and people around you. I could personally relate myself with the boy in the story where Madhav (the parent) would not let Aman (the kid) be out and about by doctor's advise. You can feel the boy's yearning to be out of the house by how he would talk with the passing people by the Window in which he is sitting. If you were ever in a situation like that in your childhood, then it woul [...]

    24. The world through a child's eyesSuch a sweet and captivating story! Post office symbolises communication, connection , hope and life. The value of life is counted best by those who know their end is near. In this play the protagonist Amal is so you g and vibrant that he steals our heart right away. His conversations with the different sects of people on street indicates that love is the essence of life. Rabindra math Tagore is timeless. The more you read him , the richer you become.

    25. The play is written beautifully in a very simple language. There can be many interpretation of the play.It may represent the simple story of an ill boy or may be there is more symbolism than what appears to be on the surface. I think Amal represent a mind which wants to wander off to faraway places but is restricted by societal beliefs (By labeling him as ill). Amal has the quest for spiritual freedom and constantly seeking the knowledge of it by interacting with other characters. There may be o [...]

    26. This book is the best example of the most poetic, mysterious, symbolic narrative of a very short tale of a boy, written in the most beautiful language!! I wish I could read the original version in Bengali just to get a dip in an even so much sweeter language, but, English was not less than a masterpiece!!The mystery sort of takes us through a spiritual awakening, which when finally confronts the biggest truth of life, the Death, it could not be more beautifully explained!!Big Bow to Gurudev for [...]
