Giving voice to art and introducing rich Indian culture to the world, Rabindranath Tagore has inspired generations of people through his writings, poems, songs and paintings.
Born on May 7, 1861, Gurudev, Rabindranath Tagore has inspired generations of people through his writings, poems, songs and paintings. He has successfully reshaped Bengali literature and music and Indian art with contextual modernism.
As an exceptionally creative artist of early 20th-century India, he won the prestigious Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913 for his outstanding work ‘Gitanjali‘, which was published in 1910 and later translated and published into English in 1912. As a humble human being, he often lived in close proximity with village folks and sympathised with their miseries and joys of little things.
From 1912, he toured in Europe, America and East Asia lecturing and reading from his work to become an eloquent spokesperson for the cause of Indian freedom. As a gifted painter, woke social reformer, novelist, dramatist, essayist, an educator and a philosopher, he spread his knowledge around the world and imparted wisdom in the generations to come. As a tribute to the highly prolific artist, we have compiled some of his best poems which you must dwell into.
