Perhaps none of them was so unique as Toru Dutt. Frail and delicate since birth, brought up by a doting father, who lavished every care and attention on her, born in a Hindu family but converted early to Christianity, fed on Hindu myths and legends acquired both through books and through oral tradition, educated in Europe and longing to return to England, attracted towards the end of her life by Sanskrit and devoting weary hours to its grammatical intricacies, writing in French and English but not in her mother tongue, publishing works in both these languages, leaving behind with those who knew her the fragrant memory of an exceedingly charming personality, dying before she was twenty two, Toru Dutt is one of the most poignant examples of those who before their proper time pass through the door of darknes.About The Author:Dr. Sheeba Azhar, born in 1979 at Nainital had her childhood at Bareilly, studied in Lucknow, Rewa and Gwalior and received a gold medal.
