On November 13, 1913, at the age of 52, Tagore won the Nobel Prize for Literature for his collection of poems – Geetanjali. It was a moment of pride for all Indians.
Rabindranath Tagore wrote on all subjects-social reform, politics, education, religion, music, language and many others. Most of his works are in Bengali. Besides Gitanjali, he wrote ‘puravi’, ‘The Evening Sonegs’ and ‘The Mornings songs’. His novels include Gora, Raja and Rani, Birodini and Nauka Dubi.
Tagore loved all mankind. He was also deeply religious. He eastablished a unique university called Shantiniketan in Bengal. He gave us our national anthem ‘Jana Gana Mana’. This great son of India will never forget Rabinranath Tagore.
