Born on 7 May 1861 at the Jorasanko mansion in Kolkata; he was the youngest of 13 surviving children of Debendranath Tagore and Sarada Devi.

He became Asia's first Nobel laureate after winning the Nobel Prize in literature for his book “Gitanjali” in 1913.

Two of his songs are now the national anthems of Bangladesh and India, “Amar Sonar Bangla” and “Jana Gana Mana.”

Tagore wrote: novels, short stories, songs, dance-dramas, and essays on political and personal topics. “Gitanjali,” “Gora,” and “Ghare-Baire,” “Chokher Bali,” are among his best-known works.
