Summary
"Lakshmibai Tilak's autobiography, Smriti Chitra, written in Marathi, was published in four parts between 1934 and 1937, and achieved immediate popularity. I Follow After, the English translation of the first three parts, was first published in 1950." "Born into a strict Brahmin family, Lakshmibai is married off at the tender age of eleven and plunged into the tyrannical household of her father-in-law. When Lakshmi's husband converts to Christianity, she is as if widowed. For five years she lives apart from him with her son Dattu. During this period she receives almost daily letters from a husband alternately loving and angry, threatening one day to divorce her, the next begging her to join him with their child. Her love for Tilak wins at last, and she rejoins him, eventually converting to Christianity herself." "This is a lively, eventful story, peopled with interesting characters, not the least of whom is Lakshmi's husband Narayan Waman Tilak. Whimsical and impulsive, he disappears for months at a time, leaving his wife to fend for herself. He is a gifted poet, and instrumental in Lakshmi's own forays into writing poetry. Generous to a fault, he lives the last years of his life as a Christian ascetic, loved - but often cheated - by all with whom he comes into contact."--Jacket
