The Post Office
'The Post Office' returns with this illustrated edition. Rabindranath Tagore wrote 'The Post Office' in 1911, following a personal loss. In prose, Tagore tells the story of a young boy, confined to his sickbed on doctor's orders. Seated beside his window, he longs to join the world outside, where children play in the street and others scurry about, preoccupied with their daily routines. Greeting everyone who passes by his house, from the local curdseller, to the town watchman, to the lovely flower girl, Shudha, Amal - with his touching curiosity - teaches others life's simple but essential truths while awaiting his own spiritual liberation.
