    1. A 1916 novel by Rabindranath Tagore, the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. Written in Bengali and translated into English in 1919 by the author’s nephew. I think of poetry as almost impossible to translate well, but the beauty of his language does come across. I'm glad that read Tagore.On one level, the story is a love triangle. It’s a shame that Bimala didn’t have a friend to talk her out of having anything to do with Sandip. She had that guy sized up before [...]

    3. Sir Rabindranath Tagore won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. He was the first non-European and so far, the only Indian to be awarded this most prestigious award any literary artist can dream of. Bimala (means without mal or blemish in Hindu) is married to Nikhil or Nikhilesh (Lord of the Universe). Theirs is an arranged marriage that was planned even when Bimala was still a little girl. Bimala is neither good-looking, i.e she comes from lower status and darker complexion, nor rich. Nikhil [...]


    4. "I am willing to serve my country, but my worship I reserve for Right which is far greater than my country. To worship my country as a god is to bring a curse upon it.” "To tyrannize for the country is to tyrannize over the country” How much can present day ultra-nationalists learn from him!The infatuation of a married woman for her husband's friend aside, this book tries to bring out the pros and cons of then prevailing tools used by freedom fighters. Were those tools, emotionally attractiv [...]


    5. A simple story in appearance that could call many comments and digressions. Three main characters confront each other:1 a Maharaja imbued with traditional wisdom but open to the world,2 a woman whom he loves and to whom he offers freedom so that she can learn to know herself and to discover the world,3 and a political leader, embodying the rise, cynicism and extremism of the present times.The woman, rich in the freedom offered by the one, will fall in love with the other, who embodies in her eye [...]


    6. عندما قرأت العمل هذا كنت أرجّح شاعرية طاغور أكثر على روائيته والسبب لكثرة ماعرفته من نتاج شخصي له وماعرف كشاعر لكن هذا العمل يبرهن على حتى نجاحه الروائي وككاتب مسرحي كذلك. الرواية ليست بالمعجزة ولا العظيمة فهي تقليديتها. لكنها مشبعة بالحكمة والفلسفة كمعظم رويات الهند والصي [...]


    7. Reading Tagore's work as a Westerner, I am always reminded of the importance of caution. That is, I must be careful to not be too attached to the certainties I usually attach to my criteria for evaluation. When the author invites me to paint a picture, under his guidance, out of the materials of my mind, and I feel a certain resistance to even get started before recoiling, judging such a picture to be quite categorically in “bad form,” I must be cautious, and willing to question myself. Caut [...]

    9. أول تجربة لي مع أديب الهند الأبرز و أعظم قاماته على الاطلاق , وكانت تجربة مفيدة للغاية .رواية تقليدية عن المجتمع الهندي , برع فيها الكاتب في توصيف مشاعر شخصياته , وتقديم العادات والتقاليد المجتمعية في صيغة ممتعة وشاملة في نفس الوقت , تنوع بين العمق النفسي و ظاهر الإنسان ليقدم ل [...]


    10. If "Timelessness" defines whether a book is a classic or not, then "Ghare Baire" or "The Home and The World" is in true sense a great Classic. Before this book, 'Chokher Bali' was the only other novel that I had read of Tagore, and can't say I was too impressed with it. But, this book was just revelation to me what a radical thinker Tagore was. It has been 100 years since the book was written, during the days of 'Swadesi Movement', Indian uprising against the British, transition of the tradition [...]


    11. يجب ألا أفقد إيماني. سأنتظر. إن المعبر من العالم الضيق إلى العالم الأوسع مليءٌ بالعواصف. وعندما تألف هذه الحرية سأعلم أين مكاني، فإذا وجدت أني لا ألائم نظام العالم الخارجي فلن أتعارك مع قدري؟ بل سأستأذن في الرحيل صامتاً أستخدم القوة؟ ولكن من أجل ماذا؟ هل يمكن للقوة أن تغلب ال [...]


    12. The Home and the World is a literary masterpiece by Rabindranath Tagore. Set as a love triangle in the backdrop of Swadesi movement in the then Bengal, it is essentially an exploration of the noosphere surrounding the revolution, encapsulating Tagore's personal critique on the movement's ideology.All the three central characters of the novel are distressed, while treading their paths for greatness. Bimala is a young wife who seeks greatness (which every "woman is entitled to") through utmost dev [...]


    13. an amazing view of swadeshi in the early 1900´s India. The three sotries being told seem to reflect the higher consciousness (Nikihl), the concious (Bimala) and the lower conciousness (Sandip). True Bimala loses her way to sensationalism, terror and nationalism but at some point you must pay the piper to your higher self and reflect at some point, Bimala of course does. I loved that Tagore tells the story from three points of view and is able to captuer the voice of Bimala so clearly. This shou [...]


    14. أول رواية أتوقف فيها عن القراءة لأحضن الكتاب، كأني أمتص من الكلمات معانٍ مدفونة ومألوفة -على حد سواء- في جنبات قلبي.رواية عميقة. أؤمن أن في كل منّا نيكهل وسنديب وبيمالا المتأرجحة بينهما، استحضرت كثيراً النظرية البنيوية لفرويد،ولكن هذه المرة ممزوجة بالفلسفة الهندية الروحاني [...]


    15. My best exposure to non-Western literature comes courtesy of Egypt's authors. In comparison to them I was rather disappointed by Midnight's Children, about India. But when I read this short novel by Tagore I encountered a Bengali author capable of matching Naguib Mahfouz, although writing about completely different subjects. If this sounds too esoteric to readers in search of good writing who haven't yet ventured into non-Western literature, it's my way of saying simply to read this book. You'll [...]

    17. এর আগে "শেষের কবিতা" পড়ে মুগ্ধ হয়েছিলাম। সেই মুগ্ধতা আকাশ পরিমাণ বাড়ল "ঘরে বাইরে" পড়ার পর। রবীন্দ্রনাথ রবীন্দ্রনাথই। বাংলা আর বাঙালির রবীন্দ্রনাথ ভিন্ন গতি নেই। কেন নেই, সেটা এই উপন্যাসটা পড় [...]


    18. রবিঠাকুর কেন রবিঠাকুর তার আরেকটি নিদর্শন এই গ্রন্থটি (কোনটি নয় সেটা একটা প্রশ্ন!)। কখনো বিমলা, কখনো নিখিলেশ বা কখনো সন্দীপের আত্মকথা নিয়ে এই উপন্যাসটি এগিয়ে চলেছে। পড়তে মনে হয় আমি ওদের অনেক [...]


    19. From BBC Radio 3 - Drama on 3:A vivid, powerful and compelling story of love, power and political awakening.Tanika Gupta updates Rabindranath Tagore's classic novel to a contemporary British Muslim context.Nusrat arrives in the UK from Pakistan to marry Nabeel, a wealthy, progressive and educated businessman.

    20. "What if I am unworthy? The true value of love is this, that it can ever bless the unworthy with its own prodigality. For the worthy, there are many rewards on Gods earth, but God has specially reserved love for the unworthy. "- Rabindranath Tagore, The Home and the World, 41This is a love story, but by no means a conventional one. It begins nine years after the marriage of our star-crossed lovers, Bimala and Nikhil. Bimala has become totally complacent to be just a housewife. She views herself [...]


    21. Tagore is markedly different from most contemporary Indian authors. While they offer a window for the Western world to observe the changing nature of a modernizing India, Tagore forces the reader to sit through a detailed lesson of the philosophical, and sociological life of an average Indian.Part of that is, naturally, the context in which he was writing. He is not part of modernizing India, but the nobel laureate who was Indian before the country was independent. He agitated against the coloni [...]


    22. غنية بالأفكار عن الوطن والمواطنة، عن الحب، عن الوعي والحياة ، عن الزواج وأشكال أخرى من العلاقات الإنسانية. مثرية أيضاً لمن أراد أن يعرف شيئاً عن تاريخ الهند و فلسفاتها القديمة. اصطحبتها معي في أول زيارة للهند وشاهدت صورة تجمع غاندي بطاغور في مدخل منزل المهاتما بمومباي عندما [...]



    23. There is a lot of depth to this slim volume. So much history and philosophy and beautifully written. A look at politics of the time and an age old basic tale of being duped by the one who makes the most noise. One worth reading again.


    24. I am positively nervous about writing this book review and that just shows how much I loved the book.I have read some extremely interesting books this year which evoked a lot of feelings, from paranoia to wanting to write an immediate dinner invitation. But this one, all I could feel was a deep veneration brought about by true joy. But only 30 pages in, I knew it would be one of my most memorable reads of the last years. I could not stop talking about it to my friends - whether they care about b [...]


    25. رواية معقدة شوية بس فيها فكرة فلسفية جميلةمليانة باشارات فلسفية ورمزية صعب تتفهم كلها او من اول مرةبس اكيد دى مش مشكلة الرواية :Dاتعاطفت مع بيمالا شوية على الرغم من افعالها لانى حسيت انه كان غصب عنها واحدة شايفة نفسها عادية بل اقلفجأة تلاقى حد رافعها لمصاف الالهة كان لازم دة [...]


    26. This book resonated deeply. Though published 100 years ago, and as commentary on revolution in Bengal, the book speaks to freedom and government in a way that felt extremely relevant today. Here, characters debate whether the ends justify the means. Is it okay to lie or cheat if it's for the good of the country? For the country's people? Just who are the people who should benefit from the country anyway?The writing style is highly philosophical. The characters engage in long descriptions of thei [...]


    27. حسنا انها أول رواية لي مع طاغوررواية غنية جداااا بالمعاني علي الرغم من بساطتها تستطيع تناولها من جوانب عدة وكل جانب يسلمك للاخرفتستطيع من خلالها معرفة الحياة الاجتماعية الهندية وتقديس الزوجة لزوجها و صراعهم مع الاحتلالوتستطيع فيها أن تجد مقولات وأفكار تغنيك عن الكثير لكن [...]


    28. Livro muito bom! O tema central é a “swadeshi”, o movimento nacionalista indiano (bengalês) contra a presença e influência do ocidente, ilustrado por duas personagens opostas, que simultaneamente representam a colisão paradoxal entre uma visão idealista racional e uma realista “emocional”. Além da profundidade de algumas reflexões, destaco também a evolução das personagens ao longo do enredo, cujas crenças acabam por se metamorfosear em função das consequências dos seus ac [...]


    29. عجبتني ، ولو أن الترجمة كانت محتاجة مراجعةتأملات الأبطال كانت ممتعة لحد كبير
