Rabindranath Tagore's Our Universe
Rabindranath Tagore's Our Universe
Description
From the Jacket:

Amongst other things Tagore felt a deep interest in scientific speculation and discovery. For him the planet Earth was only a small, though marvelously significant speck in Creation, and he believed that if we are to understand ourselves we must comprehend also the Universe of which our world is a mere particle. One of his finest abilities was his capacity for interpreting Nature, and his love of Nature, which in one aspect was localized enthusiastically in the landscapes of Bengal, extended infinitely to the stars harmoniously crowding space. His enthusiasm to learn about them was unlimited and this book reveals how exact and wide was his grasp of contemporary knowledge on the subject. It is a book by a student for fellow-students; but it is also a poet's description of what he gleaned from countless learned scientific works, and has a simplicity combined scientific works, and has a simplicity combined with imagery that makes his account very vivid.

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
