Tagore was the first modern Bengali short story writer. He wrote well over a hundred stories. He created stories from his own experience - love, social relationships, the correspondence between man and nature and the supernatural. This collection includes tales of mystery ('The Hungry Stones'), satirical fantasy ('The Kingdom of Cards') and lovable characters like 'The Cabulliwallah'.

One of India's most cherished renaissance figures, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) put India on the literary map of the world when his Gitanjali was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. Myriad-minded, he was a poet, short story writer, novelist, dramatist, essayist, painter and composer of songs. His worldwide acclaim as a social, political, religious and aesthetic thinker, innovator in education and a champion of the 'One World' idea makes him a living presence.
