ABOUT THIS BOOK

The poems selected in these volume give us the essence of the magic of Tagore’s poetry. Translated by the poet himself, they recreate a romantic vision of the divine truth. They intricately weave the sacred with the secular. Some are tales in verse with a rare delicacy of feelings. Some are dreamy and symbolic of the poet’s mood.

AUTHOR OF THE BOOK

One of India’s most cherished renaissance figures, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) put India on the literary map of the world when his Gitanjali was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. Myriad-minded, he was a poet, short story writer, novelist, dramatist, essayist, painter and composer of songs. His worldwide acclaim as a social, political, religious and aesthetic thinker, innovator in education and a champion of the ‘One World’ idea makes him a living presence
