Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), Asia’s first Nobel laureate, excelled in many genres. He was primarily a poet (he won the Nobel Prize in 1913 for Gitanjali, a collection of poems), but he was also a painter and a musician. He wrote and composed more than 2200 songs which have become an integral part of cultural education in modern Bengal. He was an educationist and cultural and social reformer. As a playwright, novelist and short story writer, Tagore is a towering figure in Bangla literature.
