This book carries Malayalam translation of Bengali classic Gora by Rabindranath Tagore. It has been translated by V R Parameswaran Pillai.
Gora is the fifth in order of writing and the largest of Raibindranath's twelve novels. It is an epic of India in transition at a crucial period of modern history, when the social conscience and intellectual awareness of the new intelligenstia were in the throes of a great churning.
No other book gives so masterly an analysis of the complexity of Indian social life with its teeming contradictions, or of the character of Indian nationalism which draws its roots from renacent Hinduism and stretches out its arams towards universal humanism.
