The 1911-13-15 trilogy of the Gitanjali (Offering of Songs), Gitimalya (Garland of Songs) and Gitali (Song Lyrics) are about God and the human soul, God and nature, nature and the soul, the soul and humanity; they often run over into one another. Swinging from intuitive experience, suffused with vision, they appeal irresistibly to the depths of the spirit. Over the sensitive soul, like the wind oar the lyre, they strike at the roots of life, at the vital experiences that sustain it and give grace and truth to life's unquiet dream. (The Poetry of Tagore by S.K.

During hectic years as a teacher and translator the writing of these poems provided a welcome retreat into the imagination for William Radice; hence the book’s title, which is also the title of its central section. The word also has poignant personal associations for the poet, ‘The Retreat’ being the name of the Cambridge house of his friend Juan mascara, the brilliant translator of the Penguin classics editions of the Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads and Dhammapada. Radice has edited mascara;s aphorisms and uses one of them as the epigraph to this collection.

Give a woman a comb and a mirror?and a little leisure?and she will arrange her hair, perhaps put kajal in her eyes, a tip on her forehead, or a touch of red on her lips. Whom is she beautifying herself for? Her lover or her husband? Or is she looking at the woman she sees in the mirror? And is she pleased with what she sees? The twenty stories in this collection from Indian and Bangladeshi writers show women their own faces. Separated by language, by food, by religious rituals, by experience, by social status, these women still have something in common.

Swim, Little Fish Swim is about a small fish, who goes off on his own one morning and what happens to him. As with other stories by the author, there is a moral for those who wish to find it. But the primary purpose of this book, colourfully illustrated by Primula Siddiqui, is to encourage children to read.
