    I am delighted to know that Ms. Gunnel Emia Eriksdotter, Sweden, has published a unique story about the strong impact that Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore’s poetry and music has made on her consciousness since her childhood. This is eloquent testimony of the relevance and validity of thoughts and philosophy of Tagore even today,150 years after he entered this world. I am confident that this book will inspire all readers to get acquainted with Tagore’s multi-faceted personality, creativity, ideology and humanism.

    Tagore is one of the greatest poet that the Universe has ever created. He is not only a poet but a great philosopher too. He is a poet seer and a mystic. His perception and understanding of life and the Universe was so deep and profound that most often it was difficult to translate.

    Rabindranath Tagore is probably the greatest and one of the greatest poets ever is born in Bengal or in the world respectively. With his poetry, short stories, novels and song he is a genius no doubt. Thus as a literary person he is great. But I think it will be wrong if we say that he is the GREATEST POET or the GURUDEV in the world of literature because if we do so we insult every other poet in the world because in the case of literature none is, or it is better to say, can be the GREATEST...

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

Fool

O Fool, try to carry thyself upon thy own shoulders!
O beggar, to come beg at thy own door!

Leave all thy burdens on his hands who can bear all,
and never look behind in regret.

Thy desire at once puts out the light from the lamp it touches with its breath.
It is unholy---take not thy gifts through its unclean hands.
Accept only what is offered by sacred love.

[Hata Bildir]
