In this classic play Tagore dramatised the concept that the religion of man is much higher than the religion of ritual and scriptures. The conflict here is not only between obedience to ‘moth-eaten scriptures’ and religion of one’s own choice but between the poetry of pity and the prose of social necessity. This book is part of Words of the Master, a set of 12 books that have been translated by the Master himself.
