India witnessed a great many changes in the nineteenth and twentieth century. It has undergone amalgamation and transformation witnessing social, economic and political changes, religious disharmony, clashes and conflicts in the race, and also rising nationalism to subdue colonialism. Rabindranath Tagore, an eminent author of great many novels wrote Gora in 1907during disruptive times which India had undergone. Tagore in Gora portrays Gora as the central character of rising nationalism who voices his concern for the freedom of India from the clutches of British, a revolutionary making effort to transform India and also a man of self-discovery in the end. Tagore’s concern for India is beautifully depicted in the book.
