Back of the Book

Rabindranath Tagore was born in 1861, the youngest son of Debendranath Tagore, a leader of the Brahmo Samaj. After schooling at home, he was sent to England at the age of seventeen for a formal education. But before completing his education he returned to India to manage the family estates. While immersing himself in his literary pursuits, he also became involved in many community projects and initiated Shanti Niketan. His life and creative work provided Indian society with a sense of purpose and direction.

Tagore played a significant role in bringing about a new awakening in India in the latter half of the 19th century. The impact of his personality transcended his native Bengal and came to be felt not only all over India but also abroad. His fame reached spectacular heights. Although a staunch nationalist, Tagore was a champion of globalization, touring many countries and pleasing for "one world". He was offered a knighthood by the British government in 1915, which he declined on view of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre and in protest of the British policies in India.

Tagore was a genius with a multi-faceted personality, and none of his contemporaries had interests as diverse as his. He was a seeker and explored life's philosophies through his own expression. As his experiences and emotions varied, so did the media through which he articulated them. He was a poet, novelist, dramatist, musician, short-story writer, teacher, painter, educationist. Philosopher and humanist.

Tagore has the unique distinction of being the only poet to have two of his songs –Jana Gana Mana and Amar Sonar Bangla – adopted as the national anthem of two countries, India and Bangladesh respectively. Shri Khanolkar, his biographer, describes his life as "a long dream of colour and music, of beauty and heavenly genius, such as this world has never known before.
