Fruit Gathering was first published in 1916. Among the eighty-six poems contained in this book, more than fifty are of a religious nature, collected from different sources.
Poems from Katha contain ballad-like verses celebrating the courage, sacrifice and dedication of men and women from Indian history. The poems from Balaka are marked with an opulence of imagery, metrical innovations and breadth of vision.
In Fruit Gathering, these three varying styles merge and one is presented with a mystic Rabindranath Tagore with only one voice.
