Rabindranath Tagore in Kolkata, c. 1915

Rabindranath Tagore {রবীন্দ্রনাথ ঠাকুর}, was a Bengali poet, Brahmo religionist, visual artist, playwright, novelist, and composer whose works reshaped Bengali literature and music in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Nobel laureate

He became Asia's first Nobel laureate when he won the 1913 Nobel Prize in Literature.


Works

Tagore first wrote poems at the age of eight. At the age of sixteen, he published his first substantial poetry under the pseudonym Bhanushingho ("Sun Lion") and wrote his first short stories and dramas in 1877.

Protests

In later life Tagore protested strongly against the British Raj and gave his support to the Indian Independence Movement. Tagore's life work endures, in the form of his poetry and the institution he founded, Visva-Bharati University.
