In this article, we are going to read about the great achievements of Rabindranath Tagore and what made Tagore worthy of the Nobel Prize.
The first Asian Nobel Laureate had numerous contributions to Bengal and literature. In 1877, Rabithakur wrote Bhikharini (The Beggar Woman).
He is known for introducing short stories in Bengali literature. His short stories reflect the lifestyle and struggles of common people of Indian rural areas.
In 1930, he went on to create thousands of works of art. He became the first Indian artist to exhibit his art across Russia, the United States, and Europe.
Tagore was most likely red-green colour blind, which led to the art of strange colour schemes. 102 works by Tagore are listed in the collection of the National Gallery of Modern Art, India.
He wrote the poem Bharoto Bhagyo Bidhata dedicated to Para Brahman (the formless spirit that eternally pervades all, in Hindu philosophy).
After Independence, the first stanza of the poem was adopted as Indian National Anthem (Jana Gana Mana). In 1905 he wrote Amar Shonar Bangla (My Golden Bengal).
In 1971 when Bangladesh won the Bangladesh Liberation War, the first ten lines of the poem were adopted as the national anthem of Bangladesh.
