- IIT & OTHER, UNDECIMAL STORIES - By Tarit
DetailsThis book is a compilation of stories, roughly in chronological order, which chronicles the life of a school, and subsequently college going student, in Calcutta in the '60s. It is, the polar opposite of 'Malgudi Days' in that all characters are real and the situations, factual.However, the recollection of childhood days through the prism of nearly half-a-century of subsequent existence must necessarily be somewhat refracted.The mind, according to Tagore, is a painter not a camera. It records facts idiosyncratically adding colour according to its own whim and fancy, when and where it pleases. Akira Kurosawa endorses this viewpoint by exploiting this facet of the human mind brilliantly in his film Rashomon. These stories are therefore, a historic, purely personal memoirs.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Tarit's also a middle class upbringing. But books are so much a part of everyday life in his childhood that they are not even worth the mention. So are western music and sports like swimming and rowing - all available easily and inexpensively in Calcutta in the '60s. He went to Kharagpur for his architecture. He is not among the 'guys' at IIT. His roots lie as deep in Calcutta.
