Conversations and Interviews (Rabindra Rachanavali)
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.
