“By plucking the petals you do not gather the beauty of the flower.”
The longest of Rabindranath Tagore’s novels, Gora is rich in philosophical debate on politics and religion. The novel blatantly exposes the inequality and orthodoxy that exists in the established religious customs and traditions in the intertwining love stories between Gora and Sucharita and Binoy and Lolita.
Set in the backdrop of Bengal under British rule, Gora reverberates with the vibration of India’s nationalist awakening, unravelling the various internal and external conflicts between man and society and establishing itself as an epic saga among the classics!
