Details: Tagore literature with all its cornucopian variety has always been a rich quarry for translators for well over a century, ever since sister Nivedita and Jagadish Chandra Bose produced the earliest translations of Rabindranath S short stories. And his translators are legion. Yet so much remains to be translated. Education as freedom -Tagore S paradigm brings together in translation a number of Rabindranath S major essays, speeches and letters spread over five decades - a period when he came into his own not only as a world poet but also as a notable exponent of an alternative paradigm to colonial education in British India - An exponent who had his own syncretic vision and spoke with formidable original authority to intervene in the contemporary Euro-centric colonial discourse in education. Of course this unique Tagorean vision is epitomised in visva-bharati University and the visva-bharati saga is an integral part of the history of emergence of modern India.
