Description
About The Book

Rabindranath Tagore was the fourteenth child of a wealthy Indian Family, which after centuries of internal disquiet was experiencing under British rule a necessary breathing space of peace find order. But it was as the author points out, "...the peace of the desert India had ceased to be creative. Politically, she was not even aware of the loss of national freedom, and culturally, she hugged the trappings of the new servitude or blindly clung to the shackles of the old."

He was born, in 1861, eight years before what, Mahatma Gandhi. The Mahatma's place in history ". is secure but his great contemporary is less well known though he won the Nobel Prize and the admiration of the great literary figures of the West among them being. Yeats and Pound, He contrived to show India to herself and the importance of his contribution to her reawakening was subtle and deep - releasing and feeding hidden fountains of creative activity in fields, which the politician is powerless to exploit.

His first impact was followed, in the West, by a decline of interest; but his stature in the East has grown and this detailed study of his life and work gives a picture of the complete man. He was a poet, playwright, storyteller, musician, painter and educator; and his many achievements were but partial expressions of a restless vitality and an inexhaustible zest in living.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
