This is a beautifully written book and extremely interesting on the human level.

While the story is set in the area around Calcuta and talks about an Indian mariage and family many of the problems could apply to people all over the world.

Tagore's description of his main characters is very vivid and we realize that some human traits unfortunately do not change and that basically we are not that different.

Maybe some of the situations of the book do not apply to the way we look at life, or our customs but the reactions of the characters to the different problems they face is extremely human therefore common to us all.
