The late Professor Tan Yun-Shan's birth centenary is being celebrated this year. It is more than a mere remembrance of a departed great soul. Professor Yun-Shan was a visionary and an activist rolled into one whose imagination was enkindled by the phenomenal personality of Rabindranath Tagore. His dedication was so complete that the young scholar left his home and hearth to settle in a Bengal suburb opting for a very humble life.
Those were not the days when scholars could be allured by pecuniary biddings, nor did Visva-Bharati have enough strong a coffer to offer to its teachers. Undaunted by the tribulations of subsistence, Professor Yun-Shan and the like-minded scholars devoted their lives to the cause of Visva-Bharati upheld by Rabindranath.
It is a pity that Professor Tan Yun-Shan's writings are not available in print today. To fill that gap, even partially, we have endeavoured to put together some of his articles and addresses within two covers here. Should this venture meet with the discerning readers' nod, we would bring out more of his writings in the near future.
