Remembering Tagore

This refers to the 151st birthday of Noble Laureate Rabindranath Tagore celebrated on May 7. Following his predecessors like Raja Ram Mohan Roy (1772-1833) and Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar (1820-1891) of Bengal, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1940) rebelled against social injustice like dowry and bride-burning in India during his time. His poetry and short stories reflect his love for the downtrodden in India. Tagore visited many countries and proved to be true ambassador of globalization with his creed for ‘Vasudhaiva kutumbakam’ (the whole world is one family) without discrimination, which is most relevant in the present context. Let the modern youth understand, analyze, interpret and imbibe the thoughts of Tagore.
