The King of the Dark Chamber: Large Print By Rabindranath Tagore MADHAV. My faith is, to go on obeying the King--it does not matter whether he is a real one or a pretender. What do we know of Kings that we should judge them! It is like throwing stones in the dark--you are almost sure of hitting your mark. I go on obeying and acknowledging--if it is a real King, well and good: if not, what harm is there? KUMBHA. I should not have minded if the stones were nothing better than stones. But they are often precious things: here, as elsewhere, extravagance lands us in poverty, my friend. MADHAV. Look! There comes the King! Ah, a King indeed! What a figure, what a face! Whoever saw such beauty--lily-white, creamy-soft! What now, Kumbha? What do you think now?

Ha! that's it! It must be so. We have always wondered . . . why, the mere sight of a King in all countries makes one's soul quake like an aspen leaf with fear; but why should our King never have been seen by any mortal soul? Even if he at least came out and consigned us all to the gibbet, we might be sure that our King was no hoax. After all, there is much in Virupaksha's explanation that sounds plausible enough.

Author Ashmita Khasnabish uses the Indian concept of ananda to advance Irigaray's theory of jouissance and offers a re-reading of jouissance from an Indian cross-cultural psychoanalytic point of view.
TAGORE, RABINDRANATH-BIOGRAPHY. by Dr. S. Radhakrishnan
This Volume Was An Offering To The Memory Of Rabindranath Tagore On The Occasion Of The Centenary Of His Birth. If The Best Homage To A Great Man Is To Be Paid Through An Understanding Of The Significance Of His Life And Work, This Publication Should Help Inspire Such A Homage Of Understanding. This Reprint Of The Book; Undertaken To Mark The 125Th Birth Anniversary Of The Poet, Will Bring Once Again To The Collective Consciousness Of A New Generation Of Men And Women The Memory Of A Greatness Which Was Amazing In Its Versality And Universal In Its Integrated Vision Of Life. Rabindranath Has Not Only Been A One-Man Synthesis Of The Old And The New, The Ancient And Modern, But He Has Also Been, Because Of His Extra-Ordinary Catholicity Of Mind, A Leading Light To The World Struggling To Be Reborn Into Sanity. Great Poets, It Is Said, Are For Ever Our Contemporaries And Some Of The Essays In This Volume Should Hopefully Drive Home The Relevance Of Rabindranath And All That He Stood For, As A Corrective To Our Age Of Cynic Despair. The Volume Contains Valuable Studies On The Many Aspects Of TagoreýS Personality And Genius Contributed By Eminent Writers And Scholars From Many Parts Of The World. There Are, Besides, A Full And Comprehensive Chronicle Of The PoetýS Life, From Year To Year, And A Bibliography Of His Publications In Bengali And English. Reproductions In Colour Of Some Famous Portraits Of The Poet By Distinguished Artists Add To The Value Of This Publication Which Is As Much A Tribute To The Genius Of Tagore As A Guide To Its Comprehension.
