I know some people who learnt Bengali language for years just to be able to read Tagore's Bengali books.. so I hold a firm view that a book can't be translated, unless its technical of course.
I remember seeing an english cover of it long back by penguin.
In DD days a serial used to come based on the book. Used to be pretty engrossing.
