‘It is so simple to be happy, but so difficult to be simple’ a powerful quote by Rabindranath Tagore gives some potent life and living goals to swear by. A Pirali Brahmin from Calcutta, India, Tagore reshaped Bengali literature and music as Indian art of the 19th and 20th century. Popularly known as the Bard of Bengal, Tagore is best remembered for his sensitive and beautiful verse that has a magical touch to it. He was an exponent of Bengali Renaissance and a polymath who modernised Bengali art by spinning novels, stories, songs, dance-dramas, and essays that covered a wide range of topics, from politics to religion and spirituality. He was the first non-European to win a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913 for his selected poetry collection titled, ‘Gitanjali’. Till date, his poetry, novels, short stories, and essays are widely read across the globe. His legacy survives in the form of paintings, sketches and doodles, hundreds of texts, and some two thousand songs; most of which continue to reverberate around the eastern part of India and throughout Bangladesh. His quotes also echo his legacy as a Bengali polymath and Renaissance artist and touch a wide variety of topics like politics, spirituality, meaning of life, happiness, family, religion and so on.
