Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about Rabindranath Tagore. Rabindranath Tagore was a well-known Indian poet. He was also a fantastic painter, humanist, patriot, and philosopher.
He was frequently referred to as Gurudev by others. This remarkable man was born in Calcutta on May 7, 1861. His early education was provided by a variety of teachers at home. Also, he learned about many different disciplines as a result of this education. He received his higher studies in England. Most importantly, Rabindranath Tagore started composing poetry at an early age.
Around the age of sixteen, Rabindranath Tagore started writing dramas, including Valmiki Pratibha, Visarjan, Bhikarini, and Galpaguchchha. In addition, he produced four novellas and eight novels. Gitanjali, his greatest collection of poetry, won the Nobel Prize in 1913.
He composed 2230 songs, including Balaka, Jana Gana Mana, and Amar Shonar Bangla. He was red-green color blind yet had exceptional sketching and painting talents as well. India’s independence, which was given on August 15, 1947, was made possible by his Quit India campaign.
Rabindranath Tagore participated in politics and opposed British authority while defending Indian nationalism. In order to denounce the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in 1919, he produced a series of patriotic songs and gave up his knighthood. He was a multi talented individual who made contributions to politics, the arts, music, and literature. Thank you.
