BIOGRAPHY OF RABINDRANATH TAGORE. EARLY LIFE. • The youngest of thirteen surviving children, Tagore (nicknamed “Rabi”) was born on 7 May in. intellectual – Rabindranath Tagore – we catch a glimpse of his deep autobiographies – Jiban Smriti (Remembrance of Life) and. Chhelebela (The Childhood). Rabindranath Tagore was not only the leading poet and playwright of modern ' Rabindranath was born at the ancestral house of the Tagores in Calcutta in the.

The untimely death of Prashantakumar caused a sudden stop to his initiative which ended at the ninth volume of his book called Rabijiboni.

The most worthy job, comprising thirty three hundred pages, on the biographical study of Rabindranath was stopped in the year when Rabindranath reached only sixty five. But the more we penetrate into the pages of that excellent work, the more we feel that many more information was left unnoticed by Prashantakumar himself. It is thus fair to suppose that researchers of the future will dig deeper and bring to the fore information that has remained unknown so far.

If we go back a hundred years, we will note that in , the fiftieth birthday of Rabindranath was observed by the students of his own institution, the Brahmacharya School. Though not in a very grand way, it was not to be overlooked.

The biographer was Ajitkumar Chakravorty , a writer, singer and a devoted teacher of the school. The long essay that Ajitkumar read out at the celebrations was named Rabindranath which was subsequently published in the literary journal Probashi before appearing in the book form in the year One may be reminded here that Rabindranath on his own was preparing an autobiographical sketch of his early life during those days.

As Ajitkumar was sketching his work, Rabindranath did not publish his right then. Many of the episodes that we go through in Jibonsmriti are to be found in Rabindranath as well.

From this point of view, Rabindranath is yet a good resource for the Rabindra-readers. Ajitkumar goes all the way up to the composition of the Bangla Gitanjali and shows the various phases in life.

Let us not forget that Jibonsmriti was not the first attempt by Rabindranath to recapitulate his past. Before that, in , he was requested to write, and for the first time, on his personal life. The result was Atmaporichyay. Within a year of the publication of Rabindranath, the poet was honoured with the most prestigious global literary award in November Everyone knows that before the announcement of the Nobel Prize, Rabindranath was on a tour to America; and in July an article on him was published in the journal Open Court.

There is such a massive vigour in that head that it reminds one of Michael Angelo's chisel. He planted a tree and a bust statue was placed there in a gift from the Indian government, the work of Rasithan Kashar, replaced by a newly gifted statue in and the lakeside promenade still bears his name since The resultant travelogues compose Jatri Upon returning to Britain—and as his paintings were exhibited in Paris and London—he lodged at a Birmingham Quaker settlement.

Wells , and Romain Rolland.

Hamid Ansari has said that Rabindranath Tagore heralded the cultural rapprochement between communities, societies and nations much before it became the liberal norm of conduct. Tagore was a man ahead of his time.

He wrote in , while on a visit to Iran, that "each country of Asia will solve its own historical problems according to its strength, nature and needs, but the lamp they will each carry on their path to progress will converge to illuminate the common ray of knowledge. Of Tagore's prose, his short stories are perhaps most highly regarded; he is indeed credited with originating the Bengali-language version of the genre.

His works are frequently noted for their rhythmic, optimistic, and lyrical nature. Such stories mostly borrow from the lives of common people. Tagore's non-fiction grappled with history, linguistics, and spirituality.

He wrote his first original dramatic piece when he was twenty — Valmiki Pratibha which was shown at the Tagore's mansion. Tagore stated that his works sought to articulate "the play of feeling and not of action". In he wrote Visarjan an adaptation of his novella Rajarshi , which has been regarded as his finest drama.

In the original Bengali language, such works included intricate subplots and extended monologues. Later, Tagore's dramas used more philosophical and allegorical themes.

The play Dak Ghar The Post Office'; , describes the child Amal defying his stuffy and puerile confines by ultimately "fall[ing] asleep", hinting his physical death.

This period was among Tagore's most fecund, yielding more than half the stories contained in the three-volume Galpaguchchha, which itself is a collection of eighty-four stories. Tagore typically associated his earliest stories such as those of the "Sadhana" period with an exuberance of vitality and spontaneity; these characteristics were intimately connected with Tagore's life in the common villages of, among others, Patisar , Shajadpur, and Shilaida while managing the Tagore family's vast landholdings.

Ghare Baire The Home and the World —through the lens of the idealistic zamindar protagonist Nikhil—excoriates rising Indian nationalism, terrorism, and religious zeal in the Swadeshi movement ; a frank expression of Tagore's conflicted sentiments, it emerged from a bout of depression.

The novel ends in Hindu-Muslim violence and Nikhil's—likely mortal—wounding. Ignorant of his foreign origins, he chastises Hindu religious backsliders out of love for the indigenous Indians and solidarity with them against his hegemon-compatriots. He falls for a Brahmo girl, compelling his worried foster father to reveal his lost past and cease his nativist zeal.

Tagore flaunts his feminist leanings; pathos depicts the plight and ultimate demise of women trapped by pregnancy, duty, and family honour; he simultaneously trucks with Bengal's putrescent landed gentry. Kumudini, Biprodas' sister, is caught between the two as she is married off to Madhusudan.
