Rabindranath Tagore was born on 7 May, 1861 (more commonly 25shey Boishakh as Bengalis like to say). But even on his 158th birthday, there are some works of Rabindranath Tagore that might still be relevant to today’s millennials.
His songs, novels, short stories and poems are surrounded with the theme of love, work and loneliness. It isn’t surprising if the people of the 21st century too can relate to his works because of his omnipresent themes.
Not just his works, his ideas too are similar to that of today’s youth, for instance he advocated for book-less but practical education and against formal education.
He was a doodler as well! He doodled trees, animals and ancient symbols on his books and manuscripts.
He was also a humanist and thought that nationalism, nation and borders were man-made divisions. He was a poet without borders of sorts.
Rabindranath Tagore was a poet, artist, playwright, essayist, short story writer, song writer and composer. He was the 1st non-European to win a Noble Prize and needless to say, an exceptionally talented human being. Even after 8 decades of his death, his legacy lives on.
