About the Book

"The Home and the World" by Rabindranath Tagore is a Historical fiction novel that delves into the complexities of love, politics, and personal identity in early 20th-century India. Set against the backdrop of the Swadeshi movement and the struggle for Indian independence, Tagore's novel follows the intertwined lives of three central characters: Nikhil, a progressive landowner; his wife, Bimala, torn between tradition and modernity; and Sandip, a charismatic nationalist leader. Through richly textured prose and nuanced characterizations, Tagore explores the tensions between tradition and change, nationalism and cosmopolitanism, and individual freedom and societal obligation. As the characters grapple with their own desires and allegiances, they are forced to confront the complexities of loyalty, betrayal, and the search for personal fulfillment. "The Home and the World" is not only a compelling narrative but also a profound meditation on the human condition and the transformative power of love and sacrifice. Tagore's lyrical prose and insightful observations offer readers a window into the cultural and political landscape of colonial India, while also exploring universal themes of identity, freedom, and the quest for meaning.

About Author

Rabindranath Tagore

Indian polymath Rabindranath Tagore was a well-known poet, philosopher, musician, and artist who had a significant impact on changing the country's intellectual and cultural landscape in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In Calcutta (now Kolkata), Tagore was born into a well-to-do Bengali family and started writing poems at a young age. He was the first non-European laureate to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913 for his most well-known work, "Gitanjali" (Song Offerings). In addition to being a brilliant poet, Tagore was a well-known participant in the Indian Renaissance. In Santiniketan, he established Visva-Bharati University, putting a strong emphasis on a holistic education that combined the arts, culture, and environment. Poems, plays, essays, and short tales are among Tagore's literary works, which showcase his profound understanding of spirituality, human nature, and the nexus of tradition and modernity. He wrote both the music and the words to "Jana Gana Mana," which is India's national song. His influence affected India's political and cultural domains in addition to literature. As a fervent supporter of internationalism and humanism, Tagore's achievements have created a lasting legacy that has elevated him to a respected status both in India and around the world.
