Rabindranath Tagore born on May 7, 1861 needs no introduction. He was the first Asian to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. Popularly known as 'Gurudev', his famous works were known world wide including Gitanjali.

Tagore is the only person to have written anthems for 3 countries.

  • Jana Gana Mana, the national anthem of India, was one of the works of Tagore.
  • Amar Shonar Bangla, the national anthem of Bangladesh, was written by Tagore.

Remembering him on his 75th death anniversary, here are a few quotes from the great man himself about education. He was the voice of India's spriritual heritage to the West, for India he became a great living institution.
