Rabindranath Tagore goes online
The Ministry of Culture, Government of India has sponsored a new online variorum of the works of Rabindranath Tagore; a project undertaken by the School of Cultural Texts and Records, Jadavpur University, Calcutta.
The website has digitized all of Tagore’s writings in both Bengali and English, whether manuscript or printed format and made them freely available online. The website can be navigated in English, Bengali and Hindi and includes a search engine which can be used to locate any word or phrase within all of Tagore’s texts. Additional features include a comprehensive bibliography and unique collation software (the first in Indic script) which enables detailed examination and comparison of works.
The website is called bichitra and is free to access at: http://bichitra.jdvu.ac.in/index.php
