RABINDRANATH TAGORE

A celebrated poet and dramatist, novelist and story-writer, artist and educationist, patriot, hilosopher and thinker, and above all, a humanist, Rabindranath Tagore was the first Indian to win a Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913.  Popularly acclaimed as 'Gurudev' and 'Kaviguru', he was the founder of the Visva-Bharati University at Shantiniketan.  An accomplished educational and social reformer, Tagore inspired the national movement and several national reconstruction schemes specially meant for the masses and villagers, and took active part in the Swadeshi Movement.  Many of his schemes and ideas later formed part of Gandhiji's constructive programmes.  Tagore's achievements in all these fields are remarkable and mark him out as one of the greatest sons of India and indeed, one who has a message for the entire humanity.  The National Anthem Jana gana mana is penned by the Gurudev.

The portrait, painted by Atul Bose, was unveiled by the then President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad on 12 September 1958.

The portrait was donated by Dr. B.C. Roy on behalf of the people of India.
