An ardent admirer of T.S.Eliot, the author explores here the unified sensibility of the maestro in synthesizing what is being said and how it is being said.
As for the author's other interests, he is almost unabashedly Tagoreaholic, passionately addicted to the thought and melody enshrined in the bard's songs and lyrics.
