"Gora is more than mere novel; it is an epic of India in transition at a crucial period of modern history, when the social conscience and intellectual awareness of the new intelligentsia were in the throes of a great churning. No other book gives so masterly an analysis of the complex of Indian social life with its teeming contradictions, or of the character of Indian nationalism which draws its roots from renascent Hinduism and stretches out its arms towards universal humanism." --Krishna Kripalani in 'Tagore: A Life.' This new translation represents the fuller text as it appears now in Rabindra rachanabali. It is done by Sujit Mukherjee, university teacher turned publisher's editor, now retired.
