Tagore 150th anniversary celebration in Bay Area

.............to be continued..........

Rabindranath Tagore's 150th anniversary celebrations are being held in different parts of the world this year.  The great man ( seems weird to call him a man as he almost feels like a God - as Hindus have many interpretations of God in different forms and names )  was born in 1861.

Some interesting facts I gathered about him -
* He was the first person from the continent of Asia to receive the Nobel Prize
* As a child he did not like school and was opposed to the structured formal schooling system, but has a university in his name or around his philosophy and work. ( Vishwa Bharati University , at ShantiNiketan, West Bengal )
