Dakghor by Rabindranath Tagore – Bangla book pdf
The famous children’s drama ‘Dakghor’ is one of the best plays of world poet Rabindranath Tagore and it is also well-known as ‘Amal O Daiwala’ play. This ‘Dakghor’ (Post Office) children’s drama has completed the entire drama in three scenes and 399 dialogues. It is perhaps the most popular of the symbolic plays written by the world poet, as almost everyone has played the role of Amal at least once in their childhood at school or on the stage of Rabindra Jayanti in the neighborhood. At the same time, many children have dreamed of being ‘Amal’ sitting by the window on a summer afternoon. This uniquely beautiful play has been translated and performed in the country and abroad.
The protagonist of this post office drama is Amal whose mother and father died at an early age. And he continues to grow up as the adopted son of his childless Pishemshai Madhav Dutta. But in the meantime Amal contracted an unknown disease and Kabiraj forbade him to go out of the house. But the mischief of his child’s mind is against sitting at home. So he asks permission to sit by the window of the house on the side of the road near Pishemshai. He gets permission. There he sits all day and talk with sometimes a milkman, sometimes a watchman, sometimes a village foreman, or sometimes Sudha a Malini’s daughter who goes to pick flowers and he takes himself there by the imagination. In fact, this play is about Amal’s loss, exhaustion and death. Here Amal’s naughty teenage mind wants to run to different places in the country but can’t, this conflict is highlighted by the world poet Rabindranath throughout the play.
