Tagore was a Bengali, but he belongs to the whole world, not to speak of India. He was a universalistic and a humanist through and through.
Tagore was born on May 6, 1861 in Calcutta. He came from a rich family of landlords. But he had the milk of human kindness for the poor and the downtrodden.
Tagore was not sent to any school, he was taught at home. He was a highly precocious child. As such, he was capable of learning more from nature and society at large than from any formal education. His responsibilities regarding management of a vast estate enabled him to interact with and get impressions from a large cross-section of humanity. This enabled him to develop a broad outlook with a healthy blend of realistic and idealistic strains.
Even while learning at home, Tagore became a scholar at an early age. He had an inborn poetic bent of mind. He began to write in Bengali at an early age and even started a magazine. In his opinion, a child’s first language should be his mother-tongue in which he could express himself with better felicitation.
Tagore was a versatile genius. He was a poet, novelist, dramatist, short-story writer, essayist, actor, musician, painter, cultural leader, religious reformer and even a political leader to some extent. Above all, he was a patriot, even while being a citizen of the world. His famous novels are “Gore”, “Wreck” etc. But he is most popular for his book: the “Gitanjali”- a book of devotional lyrics in poetic prose. The book won him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. He wrote this book in Bengali and then himself translated it into English. Our national anthem “Jana- Gana-Mana” is also the creation of Tagore.

Rabindranath Tagore FRAS (/rəˈbɪndrənɑːt tæˈɡɔːr/ (About this soundlisten); born Robindronath Thakur, 7 May 1861 – 7 August 1941),[a] and also known by his sobriquets Gurudev,[b] Kabiguru, and Biswakabi, was a Bengali polymath, poet, musician, and artist from the Indian subcontinent. He reshaped Bengali literature and music, as well as Indian art with Contextual Modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Author of the "profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse" of Gitanjali, he became in 1913 the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. Tagore's poetic songs were viewed as spiritual and mercurial; however, his "elegant prose and magical poetry" remain largely unknown outside Bengal. He is sometimes referred to as "the Bard of Bengal".
A Brhamo from Calcutta with ancestral gentry roots in Jessore, Tagore wrote poetry as an eight-year-old. At the age of sixteen, he released his first substantial poems under the pseudonym Bhānusiṃha ("Sun Lion"), which were seized upon by literary authorities as long-lost classics. By 1877 he graduated to his first short stories and dramas, published under his real name. As a humanist, universalist, internationalist, and ardent anti-nationalist, he denounced the British Raj and advocated independence from Britain. As an exponent of the Bengal Renaissance, he advanced a vast canon that comprised paintings, sketches and doodles, hundreds of texts, and some two thousand songs; his legacy also endures in the institution he founded, Visva-Bharati University.
Tagore modernised Bengali art by spurning rigid classical forms and resisting linguistic strictures. His novels, stories, songs, dance-dramas, and essays spoke to topics political and personal. Gitanjali (Song Offerings), Gora (Fair-Faced) and Ghare-Baire (The Home and the World) are his best-known works, and his verse, short stories, and novels were acclaimed—or panned—for their lyricism, colloquialism, naturalism, and unnatural contemplation. His compositions were chosen by two nations as national anthems: India's Jana Gana Mana and Bangladesh's Amar Shonar Bangla. The Sri Lankan national anthem was inspired by his work.

My favourite author is Rabindranath Tagore. I developed an interest in reading because of this learned author. As a young child, my mother often narrated stories of Rabindranath Tagore at bedtime. I was fascinated by his stories. Each of his stories has a hidden lesson that helped me look at things from a different perspective. They inspired me to become a better person.

Rabindranath Tagore’s Contribution to the Society
Not just as an author, I also love and respect Rabindranath Tagore as a person. The Bengali writer loved his country, India and worked for its betterment. He raised voice against the British and played an important role in India’s freedom struggle. He tried to bring about a revolution by way of his writing.
Though he belonged to a rich family, he was grounded and had a soft corner for the poor class. He was a very kind and gentle human being. He worked for the upliftment of the poor. He inspired people to seek education as it was essential for leading a better life. He may have led a luxurious life but he decided to serve his country and his countrymen. He went through many hardships to further this aim.
Rabindranath Tagore was not just an author but also a musician, painter, religious reformer, educationist and cultural leader. He was a true patriot. He had great regard for his country and love for his countrymen. Though he had a rather disturbing personal life, it did not dither his spirit to write inspirational books and work for those around him.
His work was appreciated worldwide. Many notable authors and poets including the renowned poet W.B Yeats appreciated his work. He also won Noble Prize for his book, Gitanjali.

oh goood mine also
“future letters” can be directed to a loved one (such as an infant or young ) or to our own future self. i’ll never forget the look in my teenage daughter’s eyes when she opened a time capsule bottle her second grade teacher had supervised for her students. the letter i had written ten years prior had now landed a primo spot in her treasured lockbox. in that letter, i lauded her amazing talents in music, academics and athletics, and expressed my appreciation of her inside and outside beauty. the love i conveyed to her made a deep mark on her soul, i could see, and had come at an important time in her life as a young woman. letters to our future selves are also wonderful ways to explore change and growth in our own lives.
how far have we come and where are we going? i like to address each part of my self in the letter: physical, mental and spiritual. some questions to start with might include: what is an athletic activity you’d like to explore? are there books you’ve always wanted to read? how can you deepen your with god? other more general directions might include how we want to be different, or the same, in the future. aspects of your current accomplishments and are you most proud? what is important to you today? how do you might change and how will you respond? of course, another way to slice pie is to explore your current and future selves in terms of life areas such as work, home, friends and community. either way, it’s important that we maintain our journaling focus and see the exercise to the end.
no no no
