Brilliantly translated by Arunava Sinha, keeping the 21st century reader firmly in mind, this selection of Rabindranath Tagore s fiction, poetry, lyrics and drama is evidence of his position as one of the world's greatest writers.

Tagore was the first non-European to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. He was also knighted by the British government but he repudiated the knighthood in protest against the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in 1919. A humanist and an educationist, he started the Visva-Bharati University and founded a centre of education at Shantiniketan where students and teachers lived and learned in a setting close to nature. He was married to Mrinalini Devi and had five children. Tagore passed away in August 1941, at the age of eighty. Deeply revered, his works remain the prism through which generations of readers have viewed life.

Arunava Sinha translates classic, modern and contemporary Bengali fiction and non-fiction into English. Twenty of his translations have been published so far. Twice the winner of the Crossword translation award for Sankar s Chowringhee (2007) and Anita Agnihotri s Seventeen (2011), respectively, he has also been shortlisted for The Independent Foreign Fiction prize (2009) for his translation of Chowringhee. Besides India, his translations have been published in the UK and the US in English, and in several European and Asian countries through further translation. He was born and grew up in Kolkata, and lives and writes in New Delhi.
