RABINDRANATH TAGORE was a Bengali poet, philosopher, novelist, social reformer, and painter best known for being the first nonEuropean to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. Tagore was highly influential in introducing Indian culture to the West and is generally regarded as the outstanding creative artist of modern India. Rabindranath Tagore lived through the agonies and destruction of the First World War and witnessed the unfolding of the second one. Tagore wrote, spoke, and preached relentlessly against the perils of nationalism and the utmost need to honor human dignity even for the weakest and destitute. His messages for a well-connected global human society are immensely relevant today.

"Thou hast brought the distance near and made a brother of the stranger" Gitanjali: Verse 63
