About the Book :
Rabindranath Tagores world of education is an endless askance, erudition and re-discovery of consciousness. Right from the global crisis in education to the absence of finer sensibilities and superior vision of life, the present day pollution in education necessitates a change in the light of Rabindranaths thoughts and experiments on education of the Man par excellence. While true religion, as he strongly asserts, is the Religion of Man, the true mystic mingles with the All Beautiful like a playmate and poignantly sings: When my play was with Thee.The World of Delight as Rabindranath Tagore expresses is the sense of goodness and harmony in mankind marooned in our murky world. Unlike a theoretician, Rabindranath practically shows in Santiniketan how education unfolds the immense possibilities inherent in man and dispels unusual misconceptions often nursed in utter ignorance. In addition, readers might encounter a newer avenue of aesthetic unison in the comparative study of Eliot and Rabindranath.
