Rabindranath Tagore birth anniversary: Rare facts about India's first Nobel laureate


"It is a well-established truth that education is the backbone of the nation and children are future of the nation. So child education  is very  important for the progress of society."

It comprises of paintings, sketches and doodles, hundreds of texts, and some two thousand songs; his legacy also endures in the institution he founded, Visva-Bharati University.
