    Radical Rabindranath~II

    Tagore‘s last essay in English titled Crisis in Civilization, published just before his death, in 1941 is significant. The essay expresses an unusual pessimism as Tagore had staunchly advocated the principles of harmony and understanding between the East and West. Tagore‘s conclusion in Crisis in Civilization connects it to Samuel Huntington‘s explosive essay, The Clash of Civilization, if not for the sameness, definitely to emphatically identify the differences that the world environment has had to negotiate since the death of Tagore.
