Rabindranath Tagore (7 May 1861– 7 August 1941) was a Bengali polymath who reshaped Bengali literature as well as music, along with Indian art with Contextual Modernism in the late 19th as well as early 20th centuries. Author of Gitanjali as well as its “profoundly sensitive, fresh and lovely verse”, he became the very first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. In some cases referred to as “the Bard of Bengal”, Tagore’s verse was deemed spiritual and also mercurial; however, his “elegant prose and magical poetry” stay largely unidentified outside Bengal. A Pirali Brahmin from Calcutta with genealogical gentry origins in Jessore, Tagore composed poetry as an eight-year-old. At the age of sixteen, he released his initial substantial poems under the pseudonym Bhānusiṃha (“Sun Lion”), which were seized after by literary authorities as long-lost classics. By 1877 he finished to his very first short stories as well as dramatization, released under his genuine name. As a humanist, universalist internationalist, and also ardent anti-nationalist, he denounced the British Raj and promoted freedom from Britain. As a backer of the Bengal Renaissance, he progressed a substantial canon that made up paints, illustrations and doodles, thousands of texts, and also some two thousand tunes; his heritage endures likewise in the institution he established, Visva-Bharati University.
