Tagore and China
The book charts Tagores grand visit in 1924 undertaken in response to Chinas Tagore fever and the series of talks he gave there, their antecedents as well as impact. Also discussed is the foundation of Cheena-Bhavana at Visva-Bharatiand thereby of Chinese studies in Indiaand Tan Yun-shans lifelong dedication to it and the Sino-Indian love it held.
This well-researched book unearths new material from Chinese sources to confirm the devotion of Tagores interpreter, poet Xu Zhimo, to him and Tagores affection for Xu Zhimo. Tagores two personal visits to Xu Zhimo, preceded by the latters visit to Santiniketan, have also been detailed.
Supplemented by several rare photographs, Tagore and China is a fitting tribute to Tagores 150th birth anniversary and is going to be of abiding value to Sino-Indian understanding.
