Conversations and Interviews (Rabindra Rachanavali)
Description
Back of the Book

One of India's most cherished renaissance figures, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) put us on the literary map of the world when, his Gitanjali was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. A poet's poet, he is a maker of not only modern Indian literature but also the modern Indian mind. Myriad-minded, he was a poet, short story writer, novelist, dramatrist, essayist, painter and composer of songs. Gandhi called him the 'Great Sentinel'. His world-wide acclaim as a social, political, religious and aesthetic thinker, innovator in education and a champion of the 'One World' idea makes him a living presence.

From 1912 onwards Rabindranath Tagore came into frequent touch with the finest minds of his time. During his extensive foreign tours that began three years later, he met several great individuals. They include novelists like H.G. Wells, scientists like Albert Einstein, various politicians and scholars like Croce and Rolland. He shared with them his views on the political climate of the times as well as on societal and cultural issues. The interviews present in this volume bring out a nice blend of Tagore an philosophy as well as those of Western intellectuals.

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
