Porvay is the Marathi translation of Rabindranath Tagores Chhelebela. It is a chronicle of his own childhood. His birth into an affluent Brahmin family in Calcutta in 1861. The youngest of thirteen children, he was raised mostly by servants as his mother had died during his early years and travel kept his father busy. Porvay lets the readers know that Tagores inspiration to arts and literature was largely due to the fact that his home hosted a publication house and many of his family members were musicians and writers. He spent the rest of his time in taking a swim in the Ganges, practising wrestling and gymnastics, or trekking the hills. Porvay beautifully captures and describes these wonderful moments of Rabindranath Tagores childhood.
