    • POEM: What About Tagore by chootez lao (1/16/2006 6:38:00 AM)

      I read this message of yours only today, Lao. And I'm surprised at what you say. I don't think Tagore ever needed any recognition from abroad, i.e. from the British, to establish his Greatness. He was great even otherwise. He was an icon in Bengal so long as he lived. He was called 'Gurudev', an epithet conferred to him by people of his own land who loved him immensely because he rendered to them a poetic world whose beauty and sensitivity captured the 'hearts' of all...

      And Tagore was a Bengali poet by all means. He transcreated his works into English only as a literary experiment. if you read Arvind Krishna Mehrotra's book on Indian Writers in English, you will find an essay on Tagore by Amit Chaudhuri were the writer clearly points out as to how Tagore hated writing in English because he knew he was bad at it...

      Tagore never went chasing money or fame, rather fame and money came chasing him.. If you read Tagore's Gitanjali, you will find that the poet talks only about humility and nothing else... And you say he was a greedy man! !

      History is always written by winners and is often a compilation of prejudiced opinions. I'd abide by Literature rather for there can be no permanent and time-tested truth as to what literature has to offer..

      I have removed my poems from the website for particular reasons. However, would like to thank all my poemhunter friends for reading my poems and giving me such encouraging comments.
