Rabindranath Tagore - a study in charcoal

On my 14th birthday my aunt had presented me the selected short stories of Rabindranath Tagore. The book had stories about love, thrill and horror. And the front cover had a painting of Tagore in middle ages, with glasses on. May be a couple of years later or so, when my winter vacation was nearing an end, I discovered a powerful tool in the trades of fine Art. A tool that remained with me since then.
I talked about my discovery of charcoal while cleaning the earthen oven. I have finally found an old file with those initial drawings, mostly in tact. Although Tagore was probably the second drawing that I made, but since I like it most and don't have the first one, so, I will put it as the first one.
