Author(s):

Aparupa Chakraborty and Santanu Tewari

Abstract:

Rabindranath Tagore is one of the greatest Indian poets, novelist, philosopher, and a short story writer of early twentieth century. He is also the first non-European who received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913 that make us proud to be an Indian. He wanted to hold on the Indian culture over the European culture which he depicted in his every poet, novel, drama. This paper points out the philosophical view of Rabindranath Tagore and his thoughts about education, tradition, and society of India. The contribution of Rabindranath Tagore in the world of literature is clearly discussed in this paper. Rabindranath was so fond of nature and believed that education cannot be properly done in a constructed area of brick and cement rather than a free natural area, beneath the sky and trees with a free mind. That’s why he founded Visva Bharti, located at Santiniketan, Bolpur for independent education in India. In this paper I’ve tried to bring up some of the contributions and thoughts of Rabindranath Tagore.
