    Human being trying to make itself wholly perfect and beautiful with truthful and dedicated life is a wonderful thing to imagine. Here the gurudev Rabindranatha Tagore writes about his offering of pearl chain which made by the tears as the pearl and submits himself to the allmighty. Wonderfully written. (Report) Reply
