The Hungry Stones, by Rabindranath Tagore

This is the first of a series of occasional podcasts of the written works of Rabindranath Tagore.

This first of that series is from a collection of his short stories which were published in the west around 1916 and entitled ‘The Hungry Stones and Other Stories’.

It’s a tale that tells of a train journey shared by three men and the strange tale within a tale recounted by one of them. (Sorry about this but there’s some hammering going on during some of this podcast, a noisy neighbour was doing some D.I.Y during it’s recording … inconsiderate sod!).

The text used as the basis for this podcast was the one made available from the Project Gutenberg Library and while every attempt has been made to create a faithful rendition of the work there is no guarantee that it is an exact audio representation of any printed version.
