SynopsisThese articles are mostly lectures delivered in the past many years on Tagore in different forums within India and abroad and also during my stay at Edinburgh Napier University as First Tagore Chair. These lectures on different aspects on Tagore are mostly concerned with his time and his multifaceted creativity, a discussion on myth, orality and folklore with reference to Tagore, intellectual conflict and companionship between Tagore and Gandhi. There are similarly articles on Tagore and his intellectual cum logical and reasoned relationship with Jagadish Chandra Bose, Mahalanobis and Ramananda Chattopadhyay and their idea about India. This idea of India was further elaborated with reference to Swami Vivekananda and also with reference to post colonialism. One will also find how Tagore could renounce his long time friendship with Kakuzo (Tenshin Okakura for the sake of establishing peace against war in the world. The book also relates the story of Gitanjali and people's false publicity that W. B. Yeats corrected English of the poems of Gitanjali. With reference to Gitanjali there is a long discussion on Medieval Indian Bhakti Poetry of Conversion and Subversion and Continuity of a Tradition. This book deals with the life and his much splendored creativity under the big sun umbrella of Indian Renaissance whose reality was for the first time was brought into focus of public domain. —Indra Nath Choudhuri
