Rabindranath Tagore
18611941

Known as "Gurudev," poet Rabindranath Tagore was a proud inheritor of India's spiritual heritage, to which he gave voice in his inimitable language. He founded the famous Shanti Niketan and Vishva Bharati. A great man of letters, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913. He was one of our noblest patriots and was always keen to promote the welfare of his countrymen, educationally, economically and politically. He was a colossus who made an outstanding contribution to the development of painting, music, dance and drama. He triumphantly toured many countries of the world carrying the message of renascent India.

The greatest personality & the greatest sufferer in his own life, Tagore can hardly be matched. He is our pride & our everything.

I have heard this :- Tagore's word on Beauty: Tagore saw the long slide glances of the female and was reminded of Kalidasa. O! Kalidasa should include these women (of bengal) with side long glances (looking unnoticingly at the other) but if I (Tagore) write now the poem I (tagore) can describe the beauty of the eyes but only thing that is missing now in these females is the lotus in their hand.

When he was a student he hated the school and so he stopped from going to school. He learnt the subject from his father who was also his teacher and he became a great personality with remarkable qualities and also brought pride to the nation.

Rabindranath Tagore built open classrooms because he wanted children also to have freedom. They were allowed to do whatever they wanted to do at a given time.

I need the santiniketan plan for my art institue.

In 1901, Tagore left Shilaidaha and moved to Santiniketan (West Bengal) to found an ashram, which would grow to include a marble-floored prayer hall ("The Mandir"), an experimental school, groves of trees, gardens, and a library.[10] There, Tagore's wife and two of his children died.
Sourish Porel
Nothing can be described in only one paragraph about such an immortal genius. He is one of the greatest universalists in culture, politics and an inspiration to mankind for ever. He is just as significant as his name stands for.
shivani mahajan

I have read guruji's gitanjali- english version.It is an enriching experience.He has described in words the inexplicable beauty of divine romance.The thirst of the jivatma for the paramatma is depicted in these poems.
shweta
He wrote our national anthem. It is a great pride of India and we Indians.

Tagore used to meet everyone all over the world and small children used to pester him to write down a few lines of short rhymes on their shirts, hands etc. Tagore would oblige them and take care to re-write them in his note books and consolidate them. The result was such small poems as abound in compilations published in ""KANIKA', :"SPHOOLINGA((SPARKS) etc. Lesson: No labour was wasted by Tagore or any other men who wanted to become great..

AFTER TAGORE lost his wife, he bacame a total vegetarian, following the practise as a Hindu widow did. But one day when he visited his inlaws, his mother-in-law served non-veg food and Tagore ate that quietly. HIS PERSONAL ATTENDANT asked him for the reason of his doing so. He replied: My mother-in-law is grief-stricken at the loss of her daughter. If in addition, I refuse non-veg food offered to me, she will be doubly grief-stricken by being reminded of the loss she has already suffered.

What a wonderful tune did Tagore give in his youth to the Old Stalwart Bankim Chandra Chatterjee`s Vande Mataram which became the National Song of India and loved by one and all till this day !
KURAN CH GHOSH
TAGORE WAS AN INSPIRATION HIMSELF. BANGLALDESH WAS INSPIRED TO ADOPT TAGORE SONG 'AMAR SONAR BANGLA AMI TOMAYE BHALOBASHI' AS THEIR NATIONAL ANTHEM.
KURAN CH GHOSH
I memorised the entire Gitanjali in 1962 and it is still in my memory. In it Tagore talked to God and he also taught us how to talk to God !
