A unique autobiography that provides an incomparable insight into the mind of a genius The Renaissance man of modAern India, Rabindranath Tagore put his country on the literary map of the world when he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. My Life in My Words is, quite literally, Tagore on Tagore. Uma Das Gupta draws upon the vast repertoire of Tagore’s writings to create a vivid portrait of the life and times of one of India’s most influential cultural icons. The result is a rare glimpse into the world of Tagore: his family of pioneering entrepreneurs who shaped his worldview; the personal tragedies that influenced some of his most eloquent verse; his groundbreaking work in education and social reform; his constant endeavour to bring about a synthesis of the East and the West and his humanitarian approach to politics; and his rise to the status of an international poet. Meticulously researched and sensitively edited, this unique autobiography provides an incomparable insight into the mind of a genius.

William Radice says about Rabindranath Tagore is ‘Rabindranath Tagore made no distinction between his art and his life. We cannot know and understand one without the other, and with this beautifully judged anthology Uma Das Gupta gives us intimate access  to both. It tells a story of courage, sensitivity, generosity, imagination and energy, in which Bengalis and Indians can take special pride but which can make us all, in the end, proud to be human. Few of us can live as fully and nobly as Tagore, but reading his life in his own words can inspire us at least to try.”
