Book Description

The song that I came to sing remains unsung to this day. I have spent my days in stringing and in unstringing my instrument.' - Gitanjali, Born in 1861 in one of the foremost families of Bengal, Little Rabi grew up to become a great nationalist, a gifted writer, a talented artist, a brilliant visionary and a reformer of education. He was also Asia's first Nobel Laureate. His contribution to India's Freedom Movement is forever immortalized in Jana Gana Mana, a song he wrote to inspire the nation. This wonderfully insightful biography, rich in anecdotes and little-known facts, brings alive this legendary figure to contemporary readers. Monideepa Sahu vividly recounts Rabindranth's experiences at school that helped to formulate his vision of Shantiniketan. She also traces the evolution of his poetry from schoolboy rhymes in dog-eared notebooks to universally loved poetry, prose, novels and short stories.
