Inspirational quotes by the great poet

Rabindranath Tagore Jayanti 2022: Rabindranath Tagore Jayanti celebrates the birth anniversary of the noteworthy poet, author, painter, philosopher and short story writer, Rabindranath Tagore. Having made a lasting impression on the landscape of Bengali literature in the country, he was the first Indian and first non-European to achieve the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913 for his exceptional work by him, Gitanjali.

According to the Bengali calendar, the Tagore Jayanti falls on the 25th day of the Boishakh month. This year, the Jayanti will be celebrated across the Bengali community in India and Bangladesh on May 9. Tagore was born on May 7, 1861, and not only had a major role to play in literature but was also an important part of the Indian freedom movement by instilling feelings of nationalism through his poems. In 1915, he was awarded the knighthood by British King George V which he later renounced in 1919, to protest against the Jallianwalla Bagh massacre.

Let’s have a look at some inspirational quotes by Rabindranath Tagore.
