  • Aregmi450: stories by rabindranath tagore 8/10 the series of stories are great and enjoyable. i liked the idea how the stories were connected at the end of each episodes. the bengali music is great and the places also look cool. some stories are from school days. good watch!

  • Ikarthikmadhira: “i slept and dreamt that life was joy. i awoke and saw that life was service. i acted and behold, service was joy.” ~ rabindranath tagore
