Description of this Book

'A dry-fruit seller from Kabul, with a heart of molten gold and a fist of iron. Escapades of naughty schoolboys travelling on a train with an unusual teacher. The decisive battle of skill and oratory between two poets in a king's court. The everyday joys and sadness of a sick boy who sees the world through a half-open window of hope. A bemusing world of Cards, based on rules and class divides. Morning and night, life and death, poverty and riches, working girls and growing boys... everything touched Rabindranath Tagore's mind and heart and flowed into writing through his magical, unstoppable pen. Tagore's genius has yet to be fathomed completely. His writings continue to stay fresh and crisp, surprising us, provoking us and moving us even a hundred years after he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Original and touching, intense and unforgettable, the stories, plays and poems in this volume have been carefully selected and translated into a definitive and valuable collection of Tagore's masterpieces.
