What happens when two great minds meet?
An explosion of brilliant ideas,
An exchange of thoughts,
A marvellous conversation,
Of science, art, philosophy,
Of pen, paper, poetry and literature,
Everything stands bright, shining and beaming,
With the radiance of two magnificent personalities!
On 14th July,1930, Dr Albert Einstein,
Welcomed into his summer home, near Berlin,
Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore!
For those who were present then,
It has been hailed and praised as a meeting
Of intellectual brilliance and spiritual exuberance!
They conversed together on various lofty topics,
With mutual respect and admiration for each other.
‘Gurudev' Rabindranath Tagore arrived
Like a learned sage, accompanied by
An entourage of admirers,
Dressed in a silken robe,
With flowing white hair and beard,
A shawl wound round him in style.
A majestic personality,
With a mystical aura enveloping him!
The two great men discussed,
Almost everything under the sun!
The quest of man,
The truth and beauty of the universe,
Whether the divine is isolated from man or the universe?
Whether the infinite personality of man can comprehend
The infinite beauty and truth of the universe?
What is Super consciousness? Can the human mind grasp it?
At the invitation of a friend named Bruno Mendel,
Once again, Tagore and Einstein met each other.
Dmitri Marianoff - Dr. Einstein's step -son-in- law,
Who took down notes, when they conversed, remarked:
Tagore as 'The poet with the head of a thinker and
Einstein as ' The thinker with the head of a poet.'
The deep and insightful 'Tagore- Einstein' dialogue turned
Into a celebration of divine music and charming philosophy!
