    Really, Tagore is one of the greatest poets of the world. He was born in Bengal, in undivided Indian sub-continent. Therefore, He belongs to Bengal, which also include Bangladesh, the soil of which country inspires some of his greatest songs an stories. his poetic inspiration is rooted in Shilaidah, Bangladesh. We are proud of Him.

Best Poem of Rabindranath Tagore

Where The Mind Is Without Fear

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake

Read the full of Where The Mind Is Without Fear

The Gardener Iv: Ah Me

Ah me, why did they build my
house by the road to the market
town?
They moor their laden boats near
my trees.
They come and go and wander at
their will.
I sit and watch them; my time
wears on.

[Hata Bildir]
