Description

Amongst other things, Tagore felt a deep interest in scientific speculation and discovery. His enthusiasm to learn about them was unlimited and this book reveals how exact and wide was his grasp of contemporary knowledge on the subject.

For him the planet Earth was only a small, though marvelously significant speck in Creation, and he believed that if we are to understand ourselves we must comprehend also the Universe of which our world is a mere particle. One of his finest abilities was his capacity for interpreting Nature, and his love of Nature.

It is a book by a student for fellow-students; but it is also a poet's description of what he gleaned from countless learned scientific works and has a complicity combined with imagery that makes his account very vivid.
