Paragraph : Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore is without any doubt the greatest writer of Bengali language. His talent was multifaceted. He was a poet, a dramatic, a novelist, a short story writer, a composer, a painter, an essayist, a critic and a philosopher at the same time. For sixty years, from his boyhood till his death he contributed to the Bengali literature in many ways. Rabindranath Tagore was born on the 7th May 1861 in the famous Tagore family of Jorasako. He was youngest son of Maharshi Debendranath Tagore. He was sent to school but his mind refused the narrow discipline of school and formal education. So in his boyhood, he was taught mostly at home with the help of private tutors. He won the 'Nobel Prize' for the English version of 'Gitanjali' in 1913. The British government made him knight, but he refused the award in protest of the massacre in Jalianwalabag. He died on August 07, 1941, at the age of eighty.
