Rabindranath Tagore. Gora.

This is my first novel by Rabindranath Tagore. So far I've read only his poems. "Gora" represents a veil under-covering a hidden world, a different India compared to our expectations. One that struggles beneath the casta rules, that tries to cope with heart and religion in front of society's challenges.
I feel humble in front of Tagore's profound interest and care for his nation. It is seldom when man of art (poet, novelist, painter) goes out of his own private creative universe and mitigates for his country's rights, analyzing the causes and suggesting solutions.
