Something Old, Something New: Rabindranath Tagore 150th Birth Anniversary Volume

Pratapaditya Pal (Editor)
In 1961 to celebrate the birth centenary of the Nobel Laureate Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), an entire issue of Marg magazine was devoted to a meditation on the painter Rabindranath by its then editor Mulk Raj Anand. This time around Marg presents that pathbreaking essay along with two others from its archives and nine fresh ones in a potpourri of the old and the new as a 150th anniversary tribute in a new millenium to the brightest luminary of the 20th century Indian sky.
Together the essays in this volume cover a wide range of subjects – Tagore’s early romance and personality, drama, dance and painting – with new voices that offer novel insights into the emotional and intellectual life of the poet who contributed so much to the cultural and spiritual consciousness of the unfragmented subcontinent.
