Rabindranath Tagore: Manihara and other stories
Drawn generally from the everyday lives ordinary people, Tagore's stories traverse the provincial domain to reflect universal feelings and values that are truly timeless. This volume includes the ever-popular 'Ramkanai's Folly', 'The Ghat's Story', 'Woman Bereft of Jewels', 'Grandfather', and 'The Matronly Boy', among other stories.
Detailed annotations and a Glossary are unique features of this translation. To those tired of the excesses of this age, Tagore's stories will come as a benediction, not only to soothe, but also to query and sometimes to shock and unsettle. In Chattopadhay's lucid translation, the stories have been sought to be retold in the same vein as the original.
