Rabindranath Tagore


Rabindranath Tagore fondly remembered as Gurudev was an extremely learned poet, novelist, musician and play writier. With his translations of some of his poems he became rapidly known in the West as well. In fact his fame attained a luminous height, taking him across continents on lecture tours and tours of friendship.

For the world he became the voice of India's spiritual heritage; and for India, especially for Bengal, he became a great living institution. Apart from all literary fields that his caliber covered, he was primarily a poet. Some of his well acclaimed piece of work are Manasi (1890), Sonar Tari (1894, Gitanjali (1910), Gitimalya (1914), and Balaka (1916).


 He was Asia’s first Nobel laureate, as he received the first Nobel Prize in Literature.  Through his writings he supported the Indian Independence Movement and denounced the British Raj. He was also the founder of Vishwa Bharti University. He has gifted India and Bangladesh with their respective national Anthems vs. Jana Gana Mana and Amar Shona Bangla. Tagore’s thinking and writing always had a perfect mix of Western ideas and Indian influence.

He was also the first Indian to bring an element of psychological realism to his novels. All his thinking was majorly influenced by the Upanishads and with the belief that God can only be found with true faith and wisdom.
