Rabindranath Tagore – a gifted artist

During my short stay in Kolkata on the 8th of April before my flight to Delhi I went to visit the family house and museum of Rabindranath Tagore.
There were many depictions of his life and his travels. Tagore was not only a highly respected poet (he received the Nobel Prize of Literature for his drama Gintanjali in 1913) but also a musician, painter, historian, philosopher, politician and sportsman.
He found clubs which strengthened the friendship between Indians, Chinese and Japanese. He opposed the wars in East Asia and demanded a panasian feeling.
He also introduced judo to India.
Until today Mr. Tagore is the most famous and respected Indian poet in the world. He visited numerous countries as Japan, China, Germany, Sri Lanka, USA, England and etc.
Another personality which I met on my Indian who lifted up my spirit.
