Tagore memorabilia stolen

Earlier this year we heard that the stolen Nobel medal of Rabindranath Tagore may be smuggled in Bangladesh.

The latest is that more memorabilia of Tagore were stolen from the Tagore Memorial Museum in Bangladesh's Sirajganj district. Due to lack of resources the Department of Archaeology is unable to protect and display many other items at the museum.

Both Indian and Bangladeshi authorities should take measures to protect Tagore's memory.
