Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore, also Gurudev (18611941) was a Bengali writer, artist, poet, dramatist, educator, and musician. He was the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, and was called "the Bard of Bengal." His dramas were philosophical and allegorical in nature. He also composed 2,230 songs. His many drawings and paintings were successfully exhibited. He traveled to 30 countries on 5 continents.

Tagore opposed imperialism and supported Indian nationalists, urging the masses to avoid victimology and instead seek self-help and education, and renounced his knighthood.

Tagore co-founded Dartington Hall School, a progressive coeducational institution, contributing his Nobel Prize monies.
