Rabindranath Tagore — Indian Poet born on May 06, 1861, died on August 07, 1941

Rabindranath Tagore, also written Rabndrantha Thkura, sobriquet Gurudev, 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", he became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. In translation his poetry was viewed as spiritual and mercurial; however, his "elegant prose and magical poetry" remain largely unknown outside Bengal. Tagore introduced new prose and verse forms and the use of colloquial language into Bengali literature, thereby freeing it from traditional models based on classical Sanskrit. He was highly influential in introducing the best of Indian culture to the West and vice versa, and he is generally regarded as the outstanding creative artist of the modern Indian subcontinent...

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it.
I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.
