Tagore goes online in Bengali and English

Posted: 03 Mar 2014 12:00 AM PST

Some of you may remember that back in May 2013 we posted on the then
upcoming launch of a new online variorum of the works of Rabindranath
Tagore. SAALG was very fortunate to welcome Sukanta Chaudhuri, emeritus
professor at Jadavpur University, to present the website in all its glory
at our recent 90th conference. Sukanta led the team at the School of
Cultural Texts and Records, Jadavpur University - Calcutta, who
collaboratively worked for two years to execute the project.

The website includes all of Tagore's writings in Bengali and English, in
all their versions, from manuscript to print and special features include a
unique collation software (the first in Indic script), a search engine
which locates any word or phrase used in his works whether print or
manuscript, a checklist of all Tagore's manuscripts and a comprehensive
bibliography of all his works. The website can be navigated in three
languages - English, Bengali and Hindi.
The website is called bichitra and is free to access at:
