The Influence of Parents

Purnachandra Bose's family was a large one. It was an undivided family of a hundred members. His mother Kshetramani Devi was an orthodox woman. She had great faith in the worship of God and the rituals on the days of religious festivals. She loved village crafts. Nandalal Bose used to watch her with great wonder, drawing figures with 'rangoli' (colored earth), embroidering, making moulds in sugar and making dolls.

Nandalal used to be thrilled as he watched beauty-taking shape before his eyes. He learnt Bengali and the language of line drawing from his mother.

He also inherited the virtues of his parents. His father Purnachandra Bose was a disciplined man and used to work hard. The diary he wrote regularly bears witness to his systematic work. Kshetramani Devi was a simple woman; but she was a woman of refinement and sympathy.

Nandalal Bose tended to take more interest in artistic creations than in reading and writing. While he was in the class his eyes would wander, beyond the windows and look for the paddy fields, the sky, the mountain range and the birds. He loved animals and took great interest in -his pets.
