Rainbow Rhymes of Tagore (In 4 Volumes)

Utpal K Banerjee (Translator)

The sterak of fun and frolices in Tagore's luminous person was amply mainifest in his children's rhymes in Chitra-Bichitra (1954, deawn from Sahaj path, 1992), Khapchhada (1936) and Chhadar Chhabi (1937), rendered here in rhymes and meters as commensurate with Tagore as feasible. Interrogations and inquisitions between the curious child and her affectionate mother- or siblings-are liberally spelt out in Tagore's Shishu (1903), Sishu Path, 1992), and Galpasalpa (1941),-rendered here in full rhymes and commensurate meters as near Tagore as possible.

All growing children have wish-fulfillment dreams and desires that Tagore dascinatingly drew in Shishu (1903), Shishu Bholanath (1922) and Chitra-Bichitra (1954, drawn from Sahaj Path, 1929), rendered here in free-flowing rhymes and metrical patterns as close to Tagore as possible.

Poetry of sheer magic, myth and mental fantasy can often have deep allegorical roots or have nuanced allusions to society and rural life, as seen in Tagore's poems in Chitra-Bichitra (1954, drawn from Sahaj Path, 1992), rendered here in free-flowing rhymes and metrical patterns as close to Tagore as possible.
