About the Book This unusual collection brings together Tagore?s writings on forms of difference based on gender, caste, class, nation, community, religion, social customs and political beliefs. Via new translations, along with Tagore?s own writings, lectures and conversations, this illustrated anthology presents his complex, dynamic approach to commonly perceived dualities ? like life/ death, nature/ culture, tradition/ modernity, East/ West, local/ universal etc.- to highlight his humanistic vision and its significance for us today. The accompanying Audio Visual Material, Tagore & His World, provides a broader context for Tagore?s evolution as a thinker and artist, offering glimpses of his life, travels, educational vision and creative experiments in the visual and performing arts.
