Best Of Rabindranath Tagore (Set Of 5): Gitanjali, My Boyhood Days, The Post Office, The Gardner Mashi And Other Stories contains Gitanjali, his translations of poems originally written in Bengali, the book that earned him the Nobel Prize. It also contains his autobiography, My Childhood Days. These are recollections of his early days when he grew up in colonial India. His reminiscences of the days he spent in Calcutta when it was a growing metropolis, with the streets lit by gas lamps and the traffic consisting mainly of horse-drawn carriages, are enchanting.


The Post Office is a bittersweet tale, of a sick child who longs to see the outside world. When the construction of a post office begins near his house, he watches in fascination and fantasises about receiving letters from royalty. He is mocked by those who do not understand, but his childish dreams give him a lot of pleasure.


It also contains other stories include The Gardener Mashi. This collection features some of the best-loved stories and verses of the great writer.
