Apart from the main programme, the birth anniversary of the noble laureate legendary Bengali poet was observed with festivity and enthusiasm in Shilaidaha of Kushtia, Shahjadpur of Sirajganj, Dakshkhindhihi and Pithabhog of Khulna and Dhaka as well.

The youngest of thirteen surviving children, Tagore, nicknamed “Rabi”, was born on 25th of Bengali month of Boishakh 1268 (May 7, 1861) in the Jorasanko mansion in Calcutta to Debendranath Tagore and Sarada Devi.

His novels, short stories, songs, dance-dramas, and essays spoke to topics political and personal.

Gitanjali (Song Offerings), Gora (Fair-Faced) and Ghare-Baire (The Home and the World) are his best-known works, and his verse, short stories, and novels were acclaimed-or panned-for their lyricism, colloquialism, naturalism, and unnatural contemplation.

Author of Gitanjali and its “profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse”, Rabindranath became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913.
