  Rabindranath Tagore  
      Next Page  
   

Rabindranath Tagore was born in Calcutta, India into an affluent Brahmin family. After a short continue in England (1878) to effort to learn law, he returned to India, and as an alternative pursued a career as a writer, playwright, songwriter, poet, philosopher and educator. His father's name was the Maharishi Debendranath Tagore, a well known Hindu reformer and spiritualist and his mother was Shrimati Sharada Devi.

 

On the way over to England he began translating, for the first time, his most recent selections of poems, Gitanjali, into English. His expressions evoked immense delicacy. No one had yet read something like it. A glance of the spirituality and over-romantic attractiveness of Indian ethnicity were discovered to the West for the first time. Less than a year afterward, in 1913, Rabindranath acknowledged the Nobel Prize for literature. He was the first non-westerner to be so privileged.

 
 

In 1901 he founded the school, Santiniketan, at Bolpur in Birbhum. The school was a great success and gave birth to Viswabharati. It became a great seat of culture and learning. In 1913 he received the Nobel Prize for literature following the publication of his collection of poems Gitanjali. Rabindranath Tagore's contribution to Bengali language and literature is unparallel. He wrote many novels, short 

 
 

stories, plays and poems. Some of Tagore's novels include Bauthakuranir Hat, Rajarshi, Naukadubi, Chokher-Bali, Gora and Ghare Baire. Tagore was an ardent patriot. His most intense period of political activity was in the years following 1905, when the agitation against the partition of Bengal was at its highest. He renounced his knighthood in

 
 

1919 as a protest against the Amritsar massacre. His patriotic poems and songs, India's national anthem Jana Gana Mana have passed into the common heritage of his country.

 
 

He was divergent to patriotism and militarism as a substance of principle, and in its place promoted pious morals and the formation of a new world civilization founded in multi-culturalism, variety and lenience. He served as a religious and imaginative inspiration to his countrymen, and certainly, the entire world. He used the resources from his inscription and lecturing to enlarge upon the educate he had founded in 1901 now known as Visva Bharati, where he tried his Upanishadic principles of teaching. He gave all his currency from Nobel Prize and royalty cash from his books to this University. From time to time he participated in the Indian supporter of independence movement, though in his own non-sentimental and creative thinker way;
Rabindranath Tagore's inventive production proves a lot about this revitalization man. The diversity, excellence and magnitude are incredible.
