Tagore Songs again - now cataloged

The audio CDs and the book of translations of Tagore songs are now cataloged and added to the University of Virginia library collections.

We thank Sugata Bose for donating the set of 4 CDs of the first title to the University of Virginia library.  Professor Bose is also the selector of his favorite Tagore songs on the second title, My Tagore.  And to complete this set of three related titles, he is also the translator into English of Tagore poems and songs in the third title, a book which includes most of the songs recorded on the CDs of the first title World Voyager.

  • Aaji marmardhwani keno jagilo ret
  • Ogo sundar, ekoda ki jani kon punyer phale
  • Tomar binay gaan chhilo
  • Tumi ki kebali chhabi
