About the Book

This collection combines some of Tagore’s more popular stories like ‘The Cabuliwallah’ with lesser-known ones like ‘The Son of Rashmani’, all of them bound together by a common theme – human fallibility. Tagore impartially delineates the mistakes of his characters, their impulsive generosity and even their unthinking cruelty towards their fellow beings. Yet, they retain a sincerity, which Tagore believed was an essential characteristic of the human spirit. A master of the short story genre, he draws his characters with such accuracy that the reader gains an insight into life as it is.
