Rabindranath Tagore is my favourite author. He was born at Jorasanko Thakurbari in Kolkata on the 7 May, 1861. He had no regular school education. But his education was not neglected. Form the very boyhood he began to write poems of great merit and charm. Under the personal care of his father Debendranath Tagore, he gained a deep knowledge in Bengali, Sanskrit and English. He was a versatile genius. He was a poet, and dramatist, a story writer, a novelist, a critic and an essayist. Some of his best poems are found in the 'Gitanjali', 'Sonar Tari, 'Kheya', 'Kalpana', 'Balaka' etc. For his 'Gitanjali' he got the Nobel Prize in literature in 1913. His novels and plays are of high order. His songs are now very popular in our country. He was a great educationist too. He had his own ideas as to how to educate the children for their all round development. He established a school at Santiniketan and afterwards founded the University of Visva-Bharati. I love him because he was a great poet as well as great thinker of international reputation. Rabindranath Tagore died away on 7 August, 1941 in his house in Jorasanko, Kolkata, India.
