Product Description

Rudyard Kipling is considered to be one of the most popular English writers. He was born in Bombay and spent the first five years of his life soaking in the colonial life. He was however, sent back to England by his parents to receive a formal British education, where he had to stay with a foster family. It was a difficult time for young Kipling and he found comfort in Books and stories. His ties with India however were not lost forever and returned when he was sixteen, to the familiar sights, sounds and smells that found their way into so many of his stories. He stayed with his parents in Lahore where he found work at a local newspaper. It is said that Kipling was equally accepted by his British colleagues as well as his Indian friends. He roamed the city streets collecting a collage of experiences. It was at this time that he wrote and published a collection of stories called plain tales from the hills, and over the next few years wrote a number of short stories. His work gained popularity both in India, as well as back home in England where they enchanted children and adults alike. His best known work that got him the maximum popularity remains the jungle Book. In 1907, at the age of 42, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the Prize and its youngest recipient to date.

About Author

Born in 1861, Rabindranath Tagore was a key figure of the Bengal Renaissance. He started writing at an early age and by the turn of the century had become a household name in Bengal as a poet, a songwriter, a playwright, an essayist, a short story writer and a novelist. In 1913 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature and his verse collection Gitanjali came to be known internationally. At about the same time he founded Visva-Bharati, a university located in Santiniketan, near Kolkata. Called the ‘Great Sentinel’ of modern India by Mahatma Gandhi, Tagore steered clear of active politics but is famous for returning his knighthood as a gesture of protest against the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in 1919. Tagore was a pioneering literary figure, renowned for his ceaseless innovations in poetry, prose, drama, music and painting, which he took up late in life. His works include novels; plays; essays on religious, social and literary topics; some sixty collections of verse; over a hundred short stories; and more than 2500 songs, including the national anthems of India and Bangladesh. Rabindranath Tagore died in 1941. His eminence as India’s greatest modern poet remains unchallenged to this day.
