Indian History

Greater India was first published in 1921. The essays in this volume are an authorised translation of papers read by the author in connection with the Swadeshi movement in Bengal, circa 1905-1910. The contents include 'Our Swadeshi Samaj' (Swadeshi Samaj), 'The Way to get it Done' (Saphaltar Sadupay), 'The Nationalist Party' (Sabhapatir Abhibhashan, Pabna Sammilani, in part) and 'East and West in Greater India' (Purva o Pachim). One of India's most cherished renaissance figures, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) put India on the literary map of the world when his Gitanjali was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. Myriad-minded, he was a poet, short story writer, novelist, dramatist, essayist, painter and composer of songs. His worldwide acclaim as a social, political, religious and aesthetic thinker, innovator in education and a champion of the 'One World' idea makes him a living presence.q
