No wonder he Got a noble prize, though it was obviously not for this book.
Writers views even in per-independence India were so logical and advanced. the clarity of thought is expressed in magical words.
The book talks about nationalism of 3 regions, Japan, India and Europe. Tagore talks highly of the eastern regions. There is some criticism but the criticism is much sharper for The west. Along with that he also tells us not to shut the door to learning from the west, instead we need to imbibe all their good points.
Order multiple copies coz u will want to gift it to friends and family.
Tagore's views were not just a warning to his time but also a guidline to the future. He, in his time, is so certain of what's going to happen and today we can just certify that he was right. However, the time's still not lost and we can still correct our mistakes.
The writings of Tagore are very much true in the present world and opens other side of the what is Nationalism ? and how it evolved and what is it doing to the present society and raising the dominance of nationality over humanity .
