Author: Rabindranath Tagore and Sukanta Chaudhuri

Book Description:

Rabindranath Tagore is considered among the most illustrious thinkers of all times. The depth of his philosophical bent of mind is reflected in the several thousands of songs, plays, poignant discussions on innumerable topics ranging from the most mundane to the most complex, stories, dramas, musicals, satires, drawings etc. that he has so meticulously crafted during his lifespan of 80 years. People who have 'known' Tagore either personally or through his artistic contributions have been overawed by the richness and versatility of his creativity and power of expression--clearly, he is larger than life!

Given Tagore's unfathomable artistic and literary contributions, the current collection is but a drop in the ocean. However, here you are more than likely to find something for everyone: the poet, the storyteller, the litterateur, and the child in you, So sit back, and enjoy!
