KABULIWALA RABINDRANATH TAGORE PDF

How should we think of this as an example of migration of Afghans to other parts of South Asia? The first point is that mobility and migration are very prominent themes in the history of South Asia. By mobility I mean internal, maybe urban to rural, or north to south, and these kinds of movements can be for a variety of reasons: they can be for pilgrimage purposes, cultural, religious, economic, political, trade, and personal. In fact, that was how the Mogul Empire functioned. It circulated administrators through the system to engage and control this movement of people, goods, ideas etc. External migration in South Asia can be of two very different types.

For many, childhood memories are shaped by the books we read. The story of a man with a heart of gold touching the lives of many while making do with his own fate — nobody but Tagore could have written such a poignant tale. Which is why, on his 78th death anniversary, ThePrint looks at the classic tale, which was adapted into a film in Want of money forces him to leave his young daughter and old mother behind and travel to India.

In Kolkata, much like many of the migrants from Afghanistan, he walks around selling dry fruit and other goods imported from his country. Reminded of his own daughter, Abdul returns to see her every day, telling her stories and giving her gifts. But the world is not always kind to outsiders, and soon, tensions rise that create problems for Abdul and threaten his relationship with Mini.

Above everything else, Kabuliwala is a tale of a father and his love for his daughter. The sentiment of being torn between admonishing her for her naughtiness and encouraging her curiosity — something most parents would relate to — is well captured in this film. Directed by Hemen Gupta, the film also a great commentary on the pain of being an outsider and being away from home. It is a kind of fear and discrimination that all immigrants face. He is also the one who is instantly suspected when anything goes wrong.

But he endures it all, in order to earn some money and take care of his family — just like any other immigrant. Although the film is more dramatised than the original story, it still has the same effect that Tagore intended. And after the major political events of this week, Kabuliwala is the film to watch to remind us to be kind to each other. ThePrint is now on Telegram. Subscribe to our YouTube channel.
