Shortly afterward Sir Rabindranath and his son Ratindranath were our guests here. They dined with some of us, and afterwards listened with pleasure to Mr. Leglers paper on Whitman. Two years later their friend, Dr. J. C. Bose, eminent in electricity and in physiology, was here, and listened appreciatively to Dr. Johnsons paper on the physiological problem of life. All these names - Whitman, Moody, Tagore, and Bose - seem to bear on the central problem of democracy.
