The iconic short story by Rabindranath Tagore about an Afghan dry-fruit seller, and his love for a little girl that he ‘adopts’ as his daughter, has caught the fancy of readers worldwide. It is counted amongst the all time greatest children books of India. The story of Kabuliwala has been adapted many times for the television and movies screen in the past, and two movies based on this story have been extremely popular in the last 50 years.
Rabindranath Tagore won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913, becoming the first non-European to be awarded the honour. He is widely regarded as the most outstanding literary and creative author of modern India. His compositions have been chosen by two countries as their national anthems – India’s Jana Gana Man and Bangladesh’s Amar Shonar Bangla.
