On The Nature of Love By Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore - "On The Nature of Love"

The night is black and the forest has no end;

a million people thread it in a million ways.

We have trysts to keep in the darkness, but where

or with whom - of that we are unaware.

But we have this faith - that a lifetime's bliss

will appear any minute, with a smile upon its lips.

Scents, touches, sounds, snatches of songs

brush us, pass us, give us delightful shocks.

Then peradventure there's a flash of lightning:

whomever I see that instant I fall in love with.

I call that person and cry: `This life is blest!

for your sake such miles have I traversed!'

All those others who came close and moved off

in the darkness - I don't know if they exist or not.

About the Author - "Rabindranath Tagore"

One of India's leading sons, Rabindranath Tagore, was born in Jorasanko, Calcutta, on May 7, 1861, to a very wealthy, educated, and zamindar family. Many Indian languages use Rabindranath Thakur as the spelling of his name. He also worked as an artist, philosopher, and poet. Maharshi Devendranath Tagore was his father. He traveled England as number of times as a child boy.

"Kabiguru," another of Rabindranath Tagore's best-known name. Rabindranath Tagore was born in 1861 and  passed away in 1941. He was the first writer from a non-European country to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, and he is globally remembered for his greatest poems.

A Short Story of Rabindranath Tagore -

There are several stories by Tagore. A three-volume series of eighty-four of his stories is called Galpaguchchha (Bunch of Stories). About half of these tales were written by Tagore between 1891 to 1895. This collection of Bangla literary works is still highly well-read. Multiple films and stage productions have adapted these stories.

For his passages, Tagore took ideas and inspiration from his surroundings—the Indian small town life. He spent a lot of time with the underprivileged people while travelling to take care of his family's huge landholdings. He occasionally applied different themes to examine the scope of his intellectual ability.
