Gora Is The Fifth In Order Of Writing And The Largest Of RabindranathýS Twelve Novels. It Is An Epic Of India In Translation At A Crucial Period Of Modern History, When The Social Concience 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 Renacent Hinduism And Streches Out Its Arms Towards Universal Humanism.

Gora is one of Rabindranath Tagore's famous novels. It is of 102 pages. Rabindranath Tagore needs no introduction to Indian students. We know him as the author of our national anthem ' Jana Gana Mana'.
It is a story of a few characters namely-Gora,Binoy,Sucharita,Lolitha,Panu Babu,Paresh Babu,Baroda,Anandamoyi,Krishnadayal ect who are very friendly but of different castes or religions.It depicts lives and problems of orthodox and unorthodox hinu families during late nineteenth century.It also shows how the Brahma samaj would react. Orthodox hindus believe much in gods and have many religious beliefs and not as much as unorthodox hindus.
I would suggest this book to people who have interest or pleasure to learn about those days.
