Bollywood actress Sharmila Tagore has acted in many films in the 60s and 70s. Her beauty and acting were the buzz of the city at that time. Sharmila’s grandmother was the granddaughter of Rabindranath Tagore’s brother. Rabindranath was highly respected by Sharmila’s mother, she took good care of the books and pictures given to her, in contrast Sharmila was a very quiet Maula and Befikre girl.
Sharmila’s mother once gave him a Nobel signed by Rabindranath Tagore and said, ‘It is very precious, take care of it.’ Sharmila felt that this book was signed by Rabindranath herself, she would take it to her school and show it to her friends. Sharmila took the book to school the next day and showed it to everyone, which led to Sharmila’s name appearing in the whole school. When he came home in the evening, he noticed that the book was not in his bag.
Sharmila lost the book even after her mother explained so much. Scared Sharmila told this to her mother, she became so angry that she did not even talk to Sharmila for several months. This incident had such a profound effect on Sharmila that after this she started taking care of his words and spent her life in a very disciplined manner.
