Rabindranath Tagore is best known as a poet but he was a man of many talents. On the one hand, he was the first Indian to win a Nobel for literature and on the other, a novelist who wrote and composed an entire genre of songs. He was a philosopher and educationist who established a university that challenged conventional education.Tagore was a painter who played an important role in modernising Bengali art. And he was a nationalist who gave up his knighthood to protest British policies in colonial India after the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.
He was a poet, a painter, a patriot, a philosopher, a novelist, an educationist, singer, story writer, essayist, critic, constructive worker and what not. But it is mainly as a poet that Tagore is known to us. His subtle artistic sense, his wisdom, his wide experience of life and deep understanding of human character as reflected through his novels and short stories, and the uncommon beauty of his language and style, soon established him as the greatest poet and writer, not only of Bengal, but of the whole of India. His important works are “Geetanjali”, “Rabindra Sangeet”, “Amar Shonar Bangla”, “Ghare-Baire”, etc. The National Anthem of India, “Jana Gana Mana”, was composed by him.
The great son of India, the voice of humanity, a great lover of nature is no more with us. But his ideas and ideals will continue to inspire and encourage the whole humanity.
Where the Mind is full of service,
Where the Heart is full of gratitude,
Where the Soul swings for the Lord,
Where the hands are meant to help,
Where the legs move right direction,
Where the tongue speaks love,
Where the Attitude is humane,
Where the Rich are kind,
Where the Law is just,
Where the Justice is for the poor,
Where the Eyes can see good
Where there is no Corruption Crime..Discrimination & Violence
Wake me up to that world my Lord....
