Meeting the Guru

Nandalal Bose had heard that Abanindranath was a kind man. He wanted to ask him to accept him as a disciple. He was shy to go alone. His classmate Satyen agreed to go with him. Satyen spoke to the Guru on Bose's behalf: "Please accept him as your disciple." Tagore looked at Bose. Bose was twenty-one. He had thin curly hair, an attractive face and bright eyes.

Abanindranath at once made up his mind but asked him mischievously, "Have you played truant? Did you not go to School today?’ Bose replied in a  quivering voice, "Excuse me sir. I am a college student." "Show me  your certificate" said Abanindranath. Later, Bose went to Abanindranath with his certificates and we some paintings. Not only Abanindranath Tagore but Havell and Lala Iswari Prasad scrutinized them. Some of them were  copies of European paintings. Among the original paintings 'Mahasveta' won Havell's admiration. Lala Iswari Prasad appreciated the picture called 'Ganesh'. He said, "Look at his lines. They are almost mature." Abanindranath was happy to see his future disciple. Bose's experiments attracted him.
