This book begins with an introduction to Rabindranath Tagore’s views on women and introduces a brief outline of his concept of love and religion. Transcending the western ideal of equality is a noteworthy feature of Rabindranath Tagore’s attitude towards women. Tagore reveals the spiritual power of woman through his writings. He views woman not as a being to be protected but as a Protector. He created woman as the huntress to combat with the stereotype of the angel. He tried to liberate women from the bondage of conventional social taboos. Rabindranath Tagore unlike the ordinary theists lays stress not only on the “Divinity of man” but also on the “Humanity of God”.
