Abstract

Rabindranath Tagore, a great poet and versatile genius, also write short stories during the same period. Those short stories are universal because in them Tagore has explored his inner self through immortal realistic characters who crave for love with perfect detachment. He has universalized his inner self that also craved for love in his childhood days and that was denied to him. Tagore has never commented on the characters in order to teach any moral lesson. Moreover, his short stories are modern because his characteristics of short stories are found in modern short stories. Tagore may be regarded as the pioneer of modern short stories of the world. A modern short story presents a character in a situation and the character reacts to the situation. The short story writer records the thoughts and feelings of the protagonist. Consequently action is undervalued and the place of plot is taken by suspense. The atmosphere is realistic but not without a vein of poetry. The attitude is that of toleration which the result of a humorous perspective is. On the whole, a modern short story communicates a mood. We get almost all the qualities of modern short stories in the short stories of Tagore
