Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore, also known also as Gurudev, was a Bengali poet, philosopher, religious thinker and intellectual leader, artist, playwright, composer, educationalist and novelist whose works reshaped Bengali literature and music in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Tagore’s literary reputation is disproportionately influenced by regard for his poetry; however, he also wrote novels, essays, short stories, travelogues, dramas, and thousands of songs.

Tagore’s works are frequently noted for their rhythmic, optimistic, and lyrical nature. However, such stories mostly borrow from deceptively simple subject matter—the lives of ordinary people. Tagore believed in the greatness of humanity, but warned that nature had to be nurtured and not exploited. He aspired to create a new world civilization that would draw on the nobility of all culture. Communication between East and West would lay the groundwork for peace. His school curriculum drew on Buddhism, Jainism, Chinese religion, Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism. He combined Western and Eastern philosophy.
