Rabindranath Tagore (Comic Book)
Rabindranath Tagore (Comic Book)
Description
From the Book

Amar Chitra Katha is a collection of illustrated classics that retell stories from Indian mythology, history, folktale and legend through the fascinating medium of comics. Over 430 stories from all over India have been told in this series that has been endorsed by educationists and recommended by teachers the world over.

Through a masterful blend of commentary, dialogue and illustration, Amar Chitra Katha presents complex historical facts and intricate mythology in a format that would appeal to children. They not only entertain, but also provide a fitting introduction to the cultural heritage of India. In a country so vast and varied, the series also serves as a medium for national integration, by introducing young readers to the rich cultural diversity of the country and highlighting the achievements of local heroes.

Amar Chitra Katha comics are like family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation.

Back of the Book

Rabindranath Tagore was born in 1861, the youngest son of Debendranath Tagore, a leader of the Brahmo Samaj. After schooling at home, he was sent to England at the age of seventeen for a formal education. But before completing his education he returned to India to manage the family estates. While immersing himself in his literary pursuits, he also became involved in many community projects and initiated Shanti Niketan. His life and creative work provided Indian society with a sense of purpose and direction.

Tagore played a significant role in bringing about a new awakening in India in the latter half of the 19th century. The impact of his personality transcended his native Bengal and came to be felt not only all over India but also abroad. His fame reached spectacular heights. Although a staunch nationalist, Tagore was a champion of globalization, touring many countries and pleasing for "one world". He was offered a knighthood by the British government in 1915, which he declined on view of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre and in protest of the British policies in India.

Tagore was a genius with a multi-faceted personality, and none of his contemporaries had interests as diverse as his. He was a seeker and explored life's philosophies through his own expression. As his experiences and emotions varied, so did the media through which he articulated them. He was a poet, novelist, dramatist, musician, short-story writer, teacher, painter, educationist. Philosopher and humanist.

Tagore has the unique distinction of being the only poet to have two of his songs –Jana Gana Mana and Amar Sonar Bangla – adopted as the national anthem of two countries, India and Bangladesh respectively. Shri Khanolkar, his biographer, describes his life as "a long dream of colour and music, of beauty and heavenly genius, such as this world has never known before.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
