Description

This is Tagore's second account of his childhood days. He describes his early days as being under 'servocracy' a word he coined for the supremacy of servants. He explains, without an ounce of self-pity, the austere life he had to lead under his father's strict supervision.

He recounts how he was rather lonely, and his only friend was his own soul. In the kind of upbringing he had, Tagore describes how he realized that two of the main purposes of his artistic life as joy and misery. This awareness and sense of wonder and enchantment in the outwardly mundane experiences of his boyhood helped Tagore become a great poet in his later years.
