Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), the internationally acclaimed poet and one of the greatest literary figures of our times, was a prolific writer of short stories. The collection presented in this volume are some of his most well known. Translated into English by his close associates and admirers like C F Andrews, E V Thompson, Pannalall Basu, Prabhat Kumar Mukherji and Sister Nivedita, they represent both the letter and the spirit of Tagore’s original Bengali and have withstood the lest of time. The stories demonstrate Tagore’s wide-ranging interests, his preoccupation with the social beyond the aesthetic or the immediacy of the subject.
