Tagore (1861-1941) is an iconic social thinker who lived and worked in India and Bangladesh. While the West largely knows him as a ‘mystic and a poet’, Tagore excelled in every sphere of the arts and literature (he authored and composed the national anthems of India and Bangladesh). All his work was inspired by the values of diversity, inclusion, democracy and justice. This site is an effort to celebrate Tagore’s social vision and its relevance today.
