A seamless blend of intelligent analysis with real empathy, Young Tagore is a first-of-its-kind psychobiography that deepens our understanding of Rabindranath Tagore. By carefully reconstructing the crucial years of Tagore s childhood and youth, preeminent psychoanalyst Sudhir Kakar examines the young prodigy s formative experiences and unravels how they shaped his creative genius. In laying bare the inner workings of Tagore s brilliance, Kakar reveals the real man behind the luminary.

He has written seventeen highly acclaimed books of non-fiction which include, among others, The Inner World (now in its sixteenth printing since its first publication in 1978), Shamans, Mystics and Doctors, Intimate Relations, The Analyst and the Mystic, The Colors of Violence and The Indians: Portrait of a People (with K. Kakar). He has written four novels and his books have been translated into twenty-one languages around the world.

Kakar has taught at leading institutions around the world and has won numerous accolades for his work. Most recently, in February 2012, he was conferred the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany, the country s highest civilian honour.
