Description

Tagore was the first modern Bengali short story writer. He wrote well over a hundred stories. He created stories from his own experience - love, social relationships, the correspondence between man and nature and the supernatural. The Hungry Stones is one of the finest tales of mystery and imagination while The Cabuliwallah is one of the most lovable characters in Indian fiction. The Kingdom of Cards is a satirical fantasy. One There Was a King and The Home Coming help the adult undertstand the child's mind. In these stories, the ordinary men and the extraordinary moments of their life became a significant theme.Tagore had a remarkable capacity to empathize with people in different situations and his characterization shows a great deal of psychological insight.

A master of short story genre, Tagore can be sad and humorous at the same time. His sense of the comic gives him - and the reader - an objective view of otherwise sentimental situations.

These stories have a firm narrative thread and will delight young and old alike.
