Author: Rabindranath Tagore, Mohammad A Quayum

This is a fine collection of Rabindranath Tagore's short stories, edited and translated by Mohammad A. Quayum, a native Bangali speaker and an English professor. Quayum's translation of Tagore's stories is exceptional in its retention of the subtleties of Bengali expression. It not only transfers the colloquialism commonly used in a daily Bengali but brings alive the minutiae of the rural milieu. These stories read almost as though they had been written originally in English. At no moment does the reader get loss in the translation, either linguistically, culturally or psychologically, and this surely is the ultimate test of a translator.
