Welcome to the site of
This site is all about Rabindranath Tagore.
Tagore lived from 1861 to 1941 and he was an Indian Poet from Bengal. Not only was he a poet, he also was a musician, novel writer and author of plays, travelogs and child prose. He was an idealist as well who started his own school in 1901 in Santiniketan (near Bolpur) which developed into a university after twenty years of hard work.
Being a social reformer and teacher he tried to unite the East and West. As a world traveller he toured around the world during a period of thirty years.
Because of his strong feelings of solidarity towards his own countrymen he resigned his Knighthood - given to him by King George V in 1915 - an act not appreciated by everyone ...
Since many years I have translated quite a lot of Tagore's poems and other stuff. Yes, I am aware of the fact that many English poems are not Tagore's original Bengali works, but alas, I do not speak Bengali. But I have been very careful in selecting the English works, which were translated by the best known English/Bengali translators.
I hereby invite Dutch people to read my English/Dutch translated work of Tagore.
