ABOUT THIS BOOK

The Cycle of Spring is a translation of Phalguni. It was one of the two Tagore dramas associated with the festivals of seasons, the other being Autumn Festival. The play is full of nature. There are songs in the rustling bamboo leaves, in birds’ nests, and in blossoming branches. They are the heralds of spring.

AUTHOR OF THE BOOK

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
