‘Kabuliwala’ oleh Abdul Qowi Bastian

My first encounter with Rabindranath Tagore was at a Mumbai’s library in January 2011. There was a photography exhibition on Tagore at the library (which name I’ve forgotten). From what I gathered that time, I knew he was one of India’s greatest writers.

At my ‘literature reading’ class yesterday, we’d read Kabuliwala by Tagore. Above is my first attempt reading it in front of about 20 people. I messed up a little bit, but generally received good feedbacks. What do you think?
