Abstract
In the late nineteenth century, Rabindranath Tagore brought Indian life to the forefront of Indian life by writing wonderful literature against the backdrop of Indian life. The decline of Indian national life under British rule, as well as the greatness of his life, was clearly and accurately reflected in literature by Rabindranath Tagore. Every story of Rabindranath Tagore has been able to successfully express that era because the society is an integral part of history. His literary art is brilliant in keeping the demands of the society intact. The main reason why Tagore’s literature gained worldwide recognition was his personal and exclusively Indian thought and his style of thinking. He was influenced by European Romanticism, but by absorbing its elements, Rabindranath expressed his Indian characters through his writings. Due to the extraordinary talent of Rabindranath, the Bengali short-stories gained immense vitality from birth. The author’s intimacy with nature in “Postmaster”, “Dena Paona” (Debt Receipt) shows how the social system in our society has accumulated so much misery in the individual’s life, as well as “Bicharok” (Judge), “Sasti”(Punishment), “Megh O Rodro”(Cloud and Sunshine) is difficult. How did the land system in the permanent settlement intensify the oppression? This is the first time when I am reading stories on this subject. On the other hand, the politics reflected in the stories named “Durbuddhi” and “Rajatika” have also beautifully reflected the Indian consciousness.
