      Rabindranath Tagore Documentary by Satyajit Ray
    15. Tagore Documentary
      The documentary was made to celebrate Rabindranath Tagore's (1861-1941) birth centenary. It details the life and work of the celebrated Bengali writer and includes dramatized episodes from the poet's life and archived images and documents.
      Rabindranath Tagore was born in Calcutta. He was educated at home. At seventeen he was sent to England for formal schooling, which he did not complete. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 "because of his profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse, by which, with consummate skill, he has made his poetic thought, expressed in his own English words, a part of the literature of the West."
      Tagore was knighted by the ruling British Government in 1915, but within a few years he resigned the honor as a protest against the massacre of peaceful protesters in a walled garden, near Amritsar, Punjab, now referred to as the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre
      Timeless Gitanjali
    16. Timeless Gitanjali
      Gitanjali is a collection of 103 poems of the Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore in English, translated by the poet himself. This volume became well known in the West, and was widely translated into other languages. In England a slender volume was published in 1913, with an exhilarating preface by W. B. Yeats. In the same year, Rabindranath became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize. The poems of Gitanjali are the offerings of the finite to the infinite.
      The Story of Gitanjali: Song Offerings
    17. The Story of Gitanjali
      It is common knowledge that Rabindranath Tagore won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 for his Gitanjali. In what language did the Bengali poet write? The Gitanjali we know was in English, but why did Tagore almost never write any subsequent poetry in that language? When he was awarded the Nobel, the slim volume of Gitanjali was the only major literary work in English that the poet had to his credit. Yet the Nobel committee passed over luminaries like Thomas Hardy to award the prize to Tagore. What did the West find in Tagore?
