A collection of 32 delightful short stories by Tagore translated from original in Bengali manage to convey the tender and elusive quality of the poet's prose that often borders on poetry.
These stories are not set on conventional norms. Slight, stripped of inessentials, their power is in a severe economy of words--what is left unsaid is equal in value to what is stated wisp of fantasy; a dip in history; a philosophic motif; an emotion; a sharp observation- such is the range of creativity in the stories.
