Rabindranath Tagore’s Insights on Education: A Reflective Journey


Dr. Anju Malik


The well-known Indian poet, philosopher, & Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore had insightful ideas about education. The old Indian system, which deeply influenced him, is plainly reflected in his work. Self-knowledge is developed by self-education. In education, it is integrated. Therefore, a pupil must be confident. The ultimate objective of education is to educate students with the cosmos. Therefore, the primary carrier of this heritage is the educational curriculum. He was more than just a simple poet or author; he was the forerunner of a literary age, giving him the status of India's cultural ambassador. Basic education, in Tagore's view, aids in the development of a fully mature man. Furthermore, Tagore supported education that comes from the natural world. Rabindranath Tagore developed Visva-Bharati, which translates to "world communication with India." He also tried to link the educational system and the core of rurality. By placing a strong emphasis on an individual's intellectual, physical, social, cultural, and spiritual lives, Tagore's educational philosophy aids in the establishment of a newly established pattern in human existence.
