Rabindranath Tagore : the myriad-minded man by Krishna Dutta( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These prose translations from Rabindranath Tagore have stirred my blood as nothing has for years," wrote W.B. Yeats in 1912, a year before Tagore was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, becoming the first Asian writer so honored. Traveling the world for several decades and sharing both his artistic and spiritual gifts with millions, Tagore was praised and admired in his time like no other twentieth-century writer as a spiritual seer and a literary genius. This biography, the product of more than ten years of research and collaboration between the authors, is the first work in many decades to disentangle the profound and perplexing contradictions that made Tagore such a fascinating and pivotal figure. He was one of the very first to perceive that - despite the great geographic and cultural distance between them - East and West would be compelled to meet in the twentieth century. Truly myriad-minded, Tagore expressed the pleasure and pain of this encounter in poetry, songwriting, and painting. "I can now imagine a powerful and gentle Christ, which I never could before," Charles Darwin's granddaughter told a friend after meeting Rabindranath. Focusing more on the man than his art and drawing extensively on newly uncovered material, Rabindranath Tagore brings to life a brilliant artist and his complicated times. Passionate, compelling, and insightful, Tagore's story has the power to move its readers in the very core of their being

Calcutta : a cultural and literary history by Krishna Dutta( Book )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the popular imagination, Calcutta is a packed and pestilential sprawl, made notorious by the Black Hole and the works of Mother Teresa. Kipling called it a City of Dreadful Night, and a century later V.S. Naipaul, Günter Grass and Louis Malle revived its hellish image. This is the place where the West first truly encountered the East. Founded in the 1690s by East India Company merchants beside the Hugli River, Calcutta grew into both India's capital during the Raj and the second city of the

The post office by Rabindranath Tagore( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a very brief Bengali play in 2 acts, first published in 1912. A young boy is dying, and out the window of his house he can see a new post office that has just opened in the town. The boy talks to anyone who passes his window, and he quickly becomes convinced that the king has sent a letter to him that will arrive soon at the new post office. Essentially a story about living in the moment and transforming the ordeal of suffering through imagination and the art of storytelling, this play embraces honest sentiment without straying into sentimentality. --Adam at www.goodreads.com

The dal cookbook by Krishna Dutta( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dal is to India what pasta is to Italy. Cheap to produce, highly nutritional, suitable for long storage and capable of being cooked in a basic pot on an open fire, dal has been providing nourishment to millions of Indians for millennia. It truly is a pan-Indian dish consumed by rich and poor alike. It is high protein and has practically no sugar - in fact it is known as 'poor man's meat' in India - hence doctors now include this as an essential item in a diet for diabetics. Dal is a genuinely impressive dish of infinite variety - there are at least 50 recipes for this humble food. There are multiple ways of cooking it, wide-ranging seasonings are used and there are diverse supplements to serve with it. Over the centuries Indian cooks became innovative and with locally available ingredients they dished out dal to satisfy a regional palate. In the process they also invented new dishes using dal lentils such as kedgeree (khichari - a risotto made with lentil), dosas (pancakes mixed with lentil flower), vadas (lentil cakes), dhokla (baked lentil cakes), papadam (dried lentil snack) and pakoras (fritters dipped in lentil batter). Krishna Dutta has assembled all the available recipes she could find from her native India and gives here for the first time the most comprehensive collection of recipes, organised regionally. She provides a fascinating historical and cultural context for her recipes making this as much a book to read as cook from."--Publisher's description
