The book” Gitanjali “is a collection of verses written after Rabindra Nath Tagore in Bangla. Tagore wrote a beautiful prayer after a gut-wrenchingly painful period in his life during which he lost his father, wife, daughter and a son in quick succession. His unmeasurable pain and unshaken devotion are written in prose verses when he lost relatives. His original Bengali version was published on August 14, 1910. Its original version in Bengali is a collection of 156 poems.
