Who was Rabindranath Thakur


Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Thakur (Anglicised Tagore, born May 7, 1861 in Kolkata, died there on August 7, 1941) was a Bengali poet, Brahmo philosopher, painter, song composer and musician who received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913, making him the first Asian Nobel Prize Winner. Tagore revolutionized Bengali literature with works such as "Ghare baire" (German "Das Heim und die Welt") or "Gitanjali" and expanded Bengali art with a myriad of poems, short stories, letters, essays and pictures. As a committed cultural and social reformer as well as a polymath, he modernized the art of his homeland by deliberately attacking its strict structure and classic design language. Two of his songs are now the national anthems of Bangladesh and India: "Amar Sonar Bangla" and "Jana Gana Mana". (According to Wikipedia.)
