Rabindranath and Rokeya as Educational Pioneers

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Rabindranath Tagore and Begum Rokeya are two iconic figures in South Asian literature and culture. However, their genius was not confined to writing alone but spread in many directions, including the sphere of education. They believed education was the key to the future of India (which included Bangladesh at the time). India could not become an independent, modern and progressive society without advancing in education and, concurrently, developing an indigenous educational model that would imbue the principles of justice, fellowship and inter-religious dialogue in the national consciousness.
