Thankfully, it was not an intense collision and thus, steppe out unhurt from the car a slim-built Labannya, kicking off a classic romance that still keeps ringing inthe hearts of readers even after nine decades since the accident happened.
Any fan of Rabindranath Tagore will know that this is a scene from his famous novel ‘ShesherKobita’ and the spot is Shillong inpicturesque Meghalaya.
