RUSSIAR CHITHI - A COLLECTION OF LETTERS IN BENGALI



Rabindranath Tagore always considered as the motivator of all time. For Indians Rabindranath Tagore is a symbol of its cultural splendor and revitalization. Amartya Sen described Tagore as “a towering figure in the millennium old literature of Bengal”. During his life time he travelled several palaces and described his experiences regarding the visit of those places’ history, society, economy, education, arts and so on in his writings. Rabindranath visited Russia during 1930. Tagore shared his experiences of his trip to the Soviet Union in articles that comprise the collection Letters from Russia. These letters were written to relatives and friends during his trip and published in Bengali in the “Probasi” magazine. When he visited Russia in 1930, he was much impressed by its development efforts and by what he saw as a real commitment to eradicate poverty and economic inequality. He was also impressed by the education system of Russia. From those letters we can understand poet’s view about then Russia and its socio-economic conditions. Dr Sangita Saikia translated Russiar Chithi in Assamese and no doubt it is a remarkable work done by her. The book was translated into various languages and Dr Saikia’s good effort provides opportunity to read Tagore’s thoughts on Russian socio-economic position in Assamese language. This book nicely packaged book carries Tagore’s articles on multiple issues ranging from education, society, politics, arts and economy. The book contains a preface by the translator, a good overview work by Sobhonlal Duttagupta (which was also a translated by Dr Saikia), fourteen letters by Tagore, conclusion and book references.  No doubt readers will get immense information and knowledge from this book.
