This seminal correspondence is a testimony to a great friendship, showing how 'The Twain', the East and West, can indeed meet. In the compiled letters, one can see how Patrick Geddes, the Scots polymath and Rabindranath Tagore, the Indian Nobel Laureate, exchange, comment on and share ideas on education, the environment, rural reconstruction, while they remain staunch Peace Warriors in a climate of mounting world conflict.
