Rabindranath's Castaway is an indigenus piece that deals with the adolescent psychology with that of a mature one.In course of the story, Nilkanta found a family and also an image of love in shape of a lady in front of him.Knowingly or unknowingly, he fell in love or better to say infatuation for the lady.He started building castles in the air.But, the sudden gush of wind shattered his dream and he found himself all alone in this world.This was the turning point of the story and his transformation.
