Book Recommendation – ‘Gitanjali’ by Rabindranath Tagore

 

Rabindranath Tagore’s masterpiece is a must-have in your library. It is a collection of 103 soulful short poems that depict Tagore’s love and his relationship with God. It is his offering of songs and written in honor of the universe.

Tagore’s deep spiritual personality is evident in these poems and are a delight to read over and over again.

Here’s one of my favourites:

‘I am only waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands. That is why it is so late and why I have been guilty of such omissions.

They come with their laws and their codes to bind me fast; but I evade them ever, for I am only waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands.

People blame me and call me heedless; I doubt not they are right in their blame.

The market day is over and work is all done for the busy. Those who came to call me in vain have gone back in anger. I am only waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands.’

The Kindle version of “Gitanjali” was available on Amazon at a throwaway price and I quickly downloaded it. By the way, it can now be downloaded for the free:-) The paper back and hard cover copies are being sold at an affordable price.

You can get your own copy at amazon.
