Nobel Laureate Rabindra Nath Tagore was a Bengali Polymath, who reshaped Bengali literature and music as well as Indian art with contextual modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Author of 'Gitanjali' and its profoundly, sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse, Tagore's poetic songs were viewed as spiritual and mercurial. His elegant prose and magical poetry are most popular among all ages and are also taught to children in schools and colleges!
