In India, especially in Bengal, Rabindranath Tagore has transcended, as often happens in the Indian paradigm, the simple position of a writer-philosopher. Since great thinkers, who are often religious in their purview, are seen as gurus and close to Bhagwan - God - by Hindus, Rabindranth Tagore is especially revered.

Hindus believe that by listening to the words of such wise and enlightened men, people are brought close to Bhagwan. For this reason, he is affectionately known as Gurudeb, which means, literally, Teacher-God.

Tagore is a first class story teller, ranking with such masters as Chekov, Guy de Maupassant and O Henry. His prose is full of lyricism. This volume carries 33 of Tagore's short stories translated from Bangla original titled Galpa Guccha - Bunch of Stories.
