He created so much of what it means to be an Indian today: our national anthem, Santiniketan, Rabindra Sangeet, stories of several Satyajit Ray films. The spiritual and emotional beauty of his elegant prose and magical poetry was beautifully captured in his stunningly beautiful short stories. Many of us have read the translations. Listening to them in Bengali, however brings out a beauty that is perhaps... lost in translation.
This two-volume collection has some of Gurudev's great short stories. We, at booksTALK, hope this will be only the first step in bringing out many such works in Indian languages. To make it possible to reconnect to our roots - of language, literature and storytelling.
The stories in this volume are: "Kabuliwallah", "Ramkanai-er Nirbuddhita", "Postmaster", "Streer Potro", "Jibito O Mrito", "Namonjur Golpo", and "Thakurda- Khokababur Protyaborton".
Please note: this title is in Bengali.
