About the Poet:
Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore was a
person of great and varied learning who wrote Gitanjali with its deeply
spiritualist, bracing and beauteous verse. 
One of the greatest
writers in modern Indian literature, Tagore was
a poet, philosopher,
musician, writer, and educationist.
He
established the Santiniketan with its refreshing vision of education and later
Viswabharati
University
Tagore was awarded the Nobel Prize
in Literature
in 1913
for his collection of poems
Gitanjali.
He was awarded the knighthood in 1915 which he returned 1919 as a protest
against the Massacre at Jallianwala Bagh.
The spiritual and expressive
quality of his poems in translation together with his outwardly charismatic
prophet-like appearance created around him the aura of a mystic in the West
which hazed over his reformist and global vision and outlook.
Tagore was instrumental in
the introduction of new prose and verse forms as well as the usage of
colloquialism into Bengali literature which liberated the Bengali Literature
from the traditional forms excessively dependent on classical Sanskrit. Tagore,
the exceptionally influential creative artist, is celebrated as an icon of
Indian culture.
