Unlike other fictional tales, this series is based on a true story of romance during the turbulent times of World War I and the changing political climate in Russia, Crimea, and Turkey.
He wrote The Forsyte Saga to vent his indignation against the Victorian values that divided the society on the basis of wealth and affluence.
Although he came from a very well-to-do family of businessmen, he rebelled against the mad pursuit to amass wealth, denial of equal status to women, and indifference to the basic human rights of prisoners, and many such other human rights issues.
He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in But he was too ill to receive it in person. He had some loyal customers, but not many as he lathed advertising, sales promotion, and all such means of modern-day business. Sadly, he died because, lost in shoe-making, he forgot to feed himself.
Lack of food, coupled with punishing involvement in his work did him in. Two brothers, both ace shoe-makers, lived and worked in a nondescript shop in an alley in the fashionable West End area of London.
His father used to patronize the shoe-making shop for getting his bespoke shoes made. The shop had no flashy signage, no bright light, except a dull-looking name board that read Gessler Brothers. The name seemed German, so did the accent of the two artisans. In the window, the two brothers had kept a pair of shoes, perhaps to announce to the public that it was but a tiny shoe-making unit.
There was a reason behind such modesty, because the two brothers made only customized footwear. He also made very fashionable light, dancing shoes using the finest leather.
In the more rugged variety, he made tall brown riding shoes that seemed almost new after long years of use. Exquisite artisanship was the hallmark of the shoes coming out of the hands of this shoe-maker. In his youthful young days, the author seldom thought about the uniqueness of the shop.
The place seemed so intriguingly wonderful. On one occasion, the author walked up to the shoe-maker to say that the pair of walking-boots supplied by him had creaked. The complaint left Gessler flummoxed for a while. With incredulous eyes, he asked the author if the tearing of the leather had occurred before the shoes were worn.
The author denied it. Gessler seemed lost in thought.
He was perhaps trying to recollect when and how he had made the pair of shoes. Then, quite unhesitatingly, he asked the author to bring the shoes, so that he could examine them. The seriousness with which Gessler took the complaint made the author uneasy.
Gessler said that some boots made by him had defects from the beginning. Quite sportingly, he offered to refund the cost of the shoes, if they were really bad. The refund offer came after the author had worn them for long!
On another occasion, the author went in to order a new pair of shoes. He was wearing a pair of shoes procured from some other shop.Since we have been cataloguing the artefacts and archives within the Heritage Centre.
