This three-volume English translation by Ratan Kumar Chattopadhyay called Selections from Galpaguchchha is a collection of sixty-one of Tagore s short stories broadly grouped under the themes of parting of ways, the relationship between men and women, and the power within the woman, respectively. In Volume 2, we find the ever- popular Ramkanai s Folly , The Ghat s Story , Woman Bereft of Jewels , Grandfather , and The Matronly Boy , among other stories. The travails of a timid man of indomitable honesty who attains a tragic heroism are narrated in Ramkanai s Folly , while the theme of The Ghat s Story is the unstated, forbidden love of a young woman for a hermit who may or may not be her long-lost husband. The frisson in the haunting climax of the Woman Bereft of Jewels , a horrifying morality tale of egotism and greed, is justly famous. Author Bio: Ratan Kumar Chattopadhyay, the translator of Tagore s short stories in Bengali, is a graduate from the University of Calcutta.
