Abstract

The fundamental difference in their attitude to life gets reflected in the educational writings of Gandhi and Tagore. If Tagore's artistic bent of mind prompted him to conceive of leisure as the core of meaningful life, Gandhi's value of manual labour made him emphasise work as the fruitful way of harnessing energies.
