Rabindranath Tagore, the Nobel laureate and composer of two national anthems, was not a writer in traditional national mould. He was a partisan to world equality and solitariness. Though most of his works were written in Bengali, he cannot be seen as if tied to a linguistic frame, on this account. He has written many novels, poems and short stories. The present book is also one of his amazing writings.
One of India's most cherished figures, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1914) was a novelist, short-story writer, poet, essayist, painter, educationist and thinker, the first non-European to be awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913. He modernised Bengali literature, moving it away from its rigid classical form and strict linguistic structure. Known for works such as Gitanjali (Song Offerings), Gora (Fair-Faced) and Ghare-Baire (The Home and the World,) his novels, short stories and verse are considered part of the greatest of world literature, famous for their exploration of the political and the personal.
