…our family has
been a confluence of
three cultures, Hindu, Mohammedan and British.'
(Rabindranath Tagore, Hibbert Lectures, Oxford, 1930)
"Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) is the most famous South Asian literary figure of the twentieth century. He was a poet, writer, statesman, educator and musician whose work and achievements earned him worldwide respect.

Born in Bengal, in eastern India, he was a strong supporter of Bengali unity and opposed the region's division at the end of the British Empire.

He was best known as a composer and poet and was the first Asian to win the Nobel Prize for literature. However, when already 60 years old, he began to paint and created a body of work that made him one of South Asia's great modern painters."
