00:21tagore pierces the heart of the reader
00:23with his depiction of homesickness
00:25rejection and isolation so in this story
00:28the protagonist is fatik chakravarti he
00:31is a 14 year old boy an adolescent a
00:35teenager and he is quite mischievous
00:37he's also not good at studies so
00:40definitely everybody at his place
00:43especially his mother is quite
00:46distressed with him and fatik is sent
00:49away to Kolkata with his uncle so that
00:52he can complete his studies over there
00:53but however
00:55his mother fails to understand fatigue
00:59because as an adolescent he needs some
01:01love and recognition and also a lot of
01:04emotional security from his mom which
01:07probably is missing in his life
01:09so let's begin the story
01:13fatik chakravarti was ring leader among
01:15the boys of the village ringleader means
01:18a group leader a new Mischief got into
01:20his head there was a heavy log lying on
01:23the mud flat of the river waiting to be
01:25shaped into a mast for a boat now mud
01:28flat mudflat means the sediment that is
01:30brought by the river after low tide
01:35so the
01:37there was a heavy log that was lying on
01:39this mud flat of the river and the log
01:42was kept there because it had to be
01:44shaped into a mask now mask is a part of
01:47the boat
01:48any kind of a sailing vessel which is
01:51required to take the ship forward
01:55and this is usually made of wood so
01:58Forte can his gang they decided that
02:00they should work together to shift the
02:02log by main force from its place and
02:05roll it away so he and his friends
02:07decided that let's shift the law there
02:10was no reason why they wanted to do it
02:11probably it was just for the sake of
02:13some fun the owner of the log would be
02:16angry and surprised and they would all
02:19enjoy the fun so this was the main
02:21reason why they wanted to shift
02:23every once again did the proposal
02:25everybody agreed and it was carried
02:27unanimously everybody supported and
02:30everybody decided to go ahead with this
02:35just as the fun was about to begin
02:36makhan fatigue's younger brother
02:38sauntered up now makhan is fatigue's
02:41younger brother and he is just the
02:43opposite of fatigue first of all he's
02:45quite disciplined second thing he's not
02:47as wild as fatigue and the third thing
02:49is with good in studies so these two
02:53brothers they never got along uh you
02:56know they didn't get along well and when
02:59they were about to do you know push the
03:01log that is when he came and he
03:04sauntered up sauntered means he walked
03:05in a very casual relaxed Manner and sat
03:08down on the log in front of them all
03:10without a word
03:16the boys were puzzled for a moment he
03:18was pushed rather timidly so they tried
03:20to push him but with not with that kind
03:22of force because they were also scared
03:24that how he would react
03:26by one of the boys and told to get up
03:28but he remained quite unconcerned so
03:31they tried to you know get him out of
03:33the way but he was quite unconcerned he
03:37appeared like a young philosopher
03:39meditating on the futility of Kings so
03:41he just had an attitude that you know
03:43what worthless games these guys are
03:45playing and he appeared like a young
03:47philosopher as if he's contemplating on
03:49some serious subject
03:51fatigue was Furious very angry makhan he
03:54cried if you don't get down this minute
03:56I will trash you so he just
03:59threatened this boy and said that if you
04:01don't get down my way and then I'm going
04:03to hit you makhan only moved to a more
04:06comfortable position so he just made him
04:08more comfortable and he turned a deaf
04:10ear to whatever he said
04:12now a fatigue was to keep his Regal
04:14dignity before the public Regal means
04:17Royal now fatik also had his ego because
04:21he had his gang with him and in front of
04:24his gang his brother was refusing to
04:26obey him so he had to
04:29satisfy his ego right so it was clear he
04:33ought to carry out his threat so he
04:34wanted to carry out this threat but his
04:37courage failed him but somehow he didn't
04:39have the courage to go and hit his
04:41his fertile brain however rapidly seized
04:45upon a new maneuver a new plan a clever
04:48move or plan maneuver means a clever
04:50move or plan which would discomfort his
04:53brother which would make his brother
04:54feel very uneasy and uncomfortable
04:58and at the same time afford his
05:00followers an added amusement and that
05:02would also entertain his gang so he gave
05:06the word of command to roll the log and
05:08makhan over together so he said let's
05:11Roll the log let makhan sit and let's
05:14roll the law so we know what is going to
05:15be the consequence right makanu is going
05:18to fall makwan heard the order and made
05:21it a point of honor to stick on so
05:23makhan also had her easy book and he you
05:26know just kept on sitting he overlooked
05:28the fact like those who attempt Earthly
05:31Fame in other matters that there was
05:33Peril in it but that time he didn't
05:35realize that there was some danger also
05:37with it Peril means Danger
05:41just began to heave at the log with all
05:44their might so it was quite a heavy lock
05:45so they started uh you know heaving
05:48means with a lot of noise they tried to
05:50push it further calling out one two
05:53three go and add the word go the log
05:55went and with it when makhan's
05:57philosophy glory and all so makhan had a
06:00great fall that's like Humpty Dumpty had
06:02a great fall makan also fell and All His
06:05glory philosophy and all his ego also
06:09Into Thin Air all the other boys shouted
06:12themselves horse with the light so they
06:14had a good laugh and they were you know
06:16laughing very roughly horse means rough
06:19but fatik was a little frightened and I
06:22was a little scared because he knew that
06:24this matter is not going to end here
06:27he knew what was coming and sure enough
06:29makhan Rose from Mother Earth blind as
06:32fit and screaming like the furies
06:35blindness wait means fate is supposed to
06:38be blind like fate is very unpredictable
06:40and blind and Furies refers to the the
06:44sisters in the Greek mythology the
06:47female spirits
06:49they were associated with vengeance so
06:51the comparison of makhan with a fate and
06:54Furies meant that he was intensely angry
06:58while full of Rage he just stood up from
07:00the ground because he fell down and he
07:03rushed at fatigue scratched his face and
07:05beat him and kicked him and then went
07:07crying home so he was the one who went
07:10and started hitting fatigue and he cried
07:13and he went on the First Act of the
07:15drama was over so the first fact is over
07:17now the second act let's see what
07:19happens when fatik you know confronts
07:22his mother
07:24fatigue wiped his face sat down on the
07:26edge of a sunken barge on the river back
07:29now a lot of uh the sceneries will take
07:33place in the story next to a river that
07:36is the reason you will have so many uh
07:38words associated with boat River and so
07:41on now asanthan baj baj is a boat that
07:45is over here half sunk the boat is half
07:47sunk and it's like you know below the
07:49surface of the water fatigue went and
07:51sat over there and he began to chew a
07:54piece of grass chew a piece of grass
07:56obviously the reason is he's
07:57absent-minded and something is going on
07:59in his mind
08:01a boat came up to the landing and a
08:03middle-aged man with gray hair and dark
08:05mustache stepped on shore
08:09so somebody comes uh stepped on short
08:11because there was a boat which had come
08:13up to the landing he saw the boy sitting
08:16there doing nothing and asked him where
08:18the chakravartis lived so this man came
08:20and inquired about the chakravartis now
08:23fatik should have been little conscious
08:26because he was looking for their house
08:29fatigue went on chewing the grass and
08:32said over there but it was quite
08:34impossible to tell very pointed he just
08:36said some casual way over there The
08:38Stranger asked him again
08:40he swung his legs to and fro on the side
08:43of the barge and said go and find out
08:45and continue to chew the grass as before
08:47so he just you know turned a day fair to
08:50whatever this man was telling and
08:51somehow he wanted to get rid of him
08:53because in his mind he was preoccupied
08:55with some other thoughts probably he was
08:57contemplating that what his brother is
08:59going to tell his mom and how his mom is
09:01going to react so that is what we are
09:07but now came but now a servant came down
09:10from the house and told fatik his mother
09:12wanted him fatigue refused to move
09:14because he knew that his mother is not
09:17going to leave him but the servant was
09:20the master on this occasion so he was
09:22more powerful in this case he took
09:24fatigue up roughly carried him kicking
09:27and struggling in important rates so
09:29Frederick was very angry and he
09:31struggled to get out and he was
09:32intensely angry important rage means
09:35extreme anger
09:37when fatih came into the house mother
09:39saw him she called out angrily so you
09:41have been hitting makhan again fatik
09:44answered indignantly angrily no I
09:47haven't who told you that his mother
09:49shouted don't tell lies you have seen
09:51other mother is hearing a one-sided
09:54right because vertic actually did not
09:56hit him though he did something but he
09:58didn't hit him so fatik said suddenly I
10:00tell you I haven't you asked makhan but
10:03makhan thought it best to stick to his
10:05previous statement he said yes Mother
10:08fatigue did hit me fatigue's patience
10:10was already exhausted already he was
10:12irritated he could not hear this
10:15Injustice he rushed at makhan and
10:17hammered him with blows means he gave
10:19him blows forceful blows take that he
10:22cried and that and that for telling lies
10:25his mother took makhan's side in a
10:27moment so the mother immediately took
10:28makhan's side so this is what we can
10:30understand what kind of a perspective
10:32she had and pulled fatik away beating
10:35him with her hand so she started hitting
10:3740 when fatik pushed her aside she
10:39shouted out what you little villain
10:41would you hit your own mother so fatigue
10:44was also angry and he was little adamant
10:46and you know that you know boys at this
10:47age they are quite aggressive so he just
10:50pushed the mom aside and he said and the
10:52mother said what you're going to hit me
10:54it was just at this critical juncture
10:57that the gray-haired stranger arrived so
10:59this was this gray head stranger his
11:01vertex maternal Uncle he asked what the
11:03matter was and fatigue looked sheepish
11:06and ashamed sheepish means embarrassed
11:09but when his mother stepped back and
11:11looked at the stranger her anger was
11:13changed to surprise
11:17for she recognized her brother and cried
11:19why Dada where have you come from so she
11:22was quite overwhelmed and she was happy
11:24to see her brother after a long time
11:25it's a union between a sister and a
11:28brother as she said these words she
11:30bowed to the ground and touched his feet
11:32this is a mark of respect her brother
11:35had gone away soon after she had married
11:37and he had started business in Bombay so
11:40the brother and the sister had not met
11:42for a while and in the meantime fertix
11:44dad also passed away and during this
11:47time the uncle was working in Bombay
11:50Bombay was the old name for Mumbai now
11:53it's uh you know we all apologize it
11:56Mumbai yeah it's my city but that time
11:58it was called as Bombay so
12:01now that he came back to Calcutta that's
12:04the reason he had come to meet his
12:09had now come back to Calcutta and had
12:11once made inquiries about his sister he
12:14had then hastened means quickly he went
12:16to see her as soon as he found out where
12:19she was
12:22the next few days were full of rejoicing
12:24the next few days were like quite happy
12:26the brother asked after the education of
12:28the two boys so he was concerned about
12:31the education of the boys he was told by
12:34his sister that fatigue was a Perpetual
12:35nuisance so this is the perspective the
12:37mother had according to her he was a
12:40nuisance because he never studied
12:41Perpetual means forever
12:44he was lazy disobedient and Wild
12:48but makhan was as good as gold as quite
12:51as lamb and very fond of reading so we
12:54can see that how biased the mother was
12:56bishomber kindly offered to take fatigue
12:59of his sister's hand so vishamber I
13:01would say that you know he's quite
13:03concerned relative and he wanted to do
13:06something for the child because somehow
13:07he felt that the child was out of place
13:10here and he said that let me take him to
13:12Kolkata where I can educate him the
13:15widowed mother readily agreed so she was
13:17quite happy when his uncle asked fatik
13:19if he would like to go to Calcutta with
13:21him his join you know bombs the fatigue
13:24was also quite happy oh yes uncle and in
13:26a way that made it clear that he meant
13:28it so he was quite happy now why was he
13:31so happy to come out of this place
13:32because there was nothing left for him
13:35his closest relative his mother was like
13:38you know quite biased and uh what he
13:42only used to get from her is scolding
13:44and chiding sometimes beatings also and
13:47his brother was always uh against him
13:50and the only Freedom that he had is with
13:54his you know gang where he used to do
13:57this kind of mischief and this was
13:59fatigue's life if you can sum it up
