last writings - rabindranath tagore - december 1939
During the final weeks before his death, Tagore dictated three poems called "shesh lekha," or last writings. This is one of them. Though it was originally composed in Dec. 1939 as part of the play, ”The Post Office”, it was (according to Tagore's wishes) sung for the first time at his funeral on August 17, 1941. Excerpt from Rabindranath Tagore: The Myriad-Minded Man by Krishna Dutta & Andrew Robinson (1995).
