About Rabindra Nath Tagore: Rabindranath Tagore was born in Calcutta in an affluent Brahmin family. Rabindranath was the youngest sibling of the family. An eminent poet, visual artist, playwright, novelist, and composer Rabindranath Tagore gave a new dimension to Indian literature and music in late 19th and early 20th centuries. He became Asia’s first laureate winner of the most prestigious award Nobel Prize in1913.

Tagore wrote novels, short stories, songs, dance-dramas, and essays on political and personal topics. His best works Gitanjali, Gora and Ghare-Baire owed him worldwide acclaim. Tagore brought a cultural reform who modernized art by strictly adhering to classical Indian forms. His composition ‘Jana Gana Mana’ has been adopted as national anthem of India and yet another great composition by him ‘Amar Shonar Bangla’ is acclaimed the national anthem of Bangladesh. The lyrics of his songs have a charm of their own and cast a spell on everyone.

His works are an exclusive blend of Indian poetry and pious theology. Tagore took his ideas of great scholarly works from the Vedas and Upanishads. A soothing mixture of Indian classic music and popular folklore of Bengal has been attributed to him and is called as Rabindra-Sangeet.
