ABOUT THE BOOK: The thirteen stories in this compilation are the truest representation of life by the Bard of Bengal, Rabindranath Tagore. These heart-warming short stories are both dramatic and poetic in effect. The stories are aesthetically orchestrated and constructed, and bring to light the trials and tribulations of human life, the simplicities and complexities of relationships, overlaid with supernatural issues, morality, and the sufferings of the soul. The many shades and tones of various supernatural and mysterious experiences are portrayed by the two narrators in the 'The Hungry Stones' and 'The Victory' revolve around the central themes of love, loss, and destiny. 'The Kabuliwallah', which has been adapted into a number of movies, focuses on an uncanny father-daughter relationship between a little girl and an Afghan trader in rural Bengal.
