The Dancing Girl’s Worship (1927) is Tagore’s own translation of his Bengali drama Natir Puja. It is one of his simplest and most moving plays. It is comparatively free from symbolic complexities and intellectual abstractions.

Product Description

The Dancing Girl’s Worship is based on a Buddhist legend. According to Krishna Kripalani, in the character of Srimati the nati (the palace dancer) ‘is symbolized the great historical drama of the challenge of Buddhism to orthodox Hindu society.’ But the main interest of the play lies in its deep human appeal and not on how far it draws on history, legend or the poet’s inspiration.
