    Exactly but it is painful to see educated persons falling into such motivated traps.

    The issue is far from trivial as the honor of a venerable titan is involved. Clearly two strands of opinions emerge from our discussion so far.One is that Tagore's work of eulogy for a British monarch and second one Tagore's rebuttal of the same.Now the question is which one should we go with?If the first one is allowed to stand the logical and corollary is Tagore was an inveterate liar and those presided over its adoption were a bunch of nitwits who were cheated into doing it by Tagore. If this line of persists and be the dominant rational choice I am all for scrapping this disgraceful piece of national anthem and putting Tagore into Hall of Disgrace but his detractors have taken a ridiculous position by betraying their own lack of faith in conviction by suggesting that it is a fait accompli - nothing can be done about it Tagore must remain permanently disgraced! What a monstrous state of mind! I am in complete agreement with Vijay that the issue should be decided once for all and we all owe it to great man.

    We are living in decadent times.Here lived a soul who was well ahead of his time by at least a few hundred years. And history will judge him for his seminal contribution to the growth of civilization as a whole. He was just not a literary genius but an extraordinary human  being. His eldest brother an equally gifted person, but less known , once commented on his youngest brother that : Rabi is the only one of us who never veered from the narrow and straight path of life." This is Tagore for you. Suffering countless tragedies in his personal he developed a sagely persona.When he was sent as a Zamindar to Selaidaha he was deeply moved by the plight of poor peasant of both Hindu and Muslim communities. He was shocked at the gross exploitation by money lenders and encouraged them to resist them by opening a bank and deposited his Nobel prize money. He voiced his agony when the Hindu Zamindars in East Bengal forced their Muslim subjects to stand in meetings and sessions unlike their Hindu counterparts and he abolished it at the first available opportunity.  His grim prediction that one day the insulted and exploited Muslim community would hit back came tragically true in the form of partition. His views on education,gender equality and nature are all revolutionary and poignantly relevant today. In his intellectual honesty he never compromised and not even spared the community he sprang from whenever the situation demanded. I have mentioned in the beginning that decadence has gripped the entire landscape not even sparing the institution for which he had to beg money to build- Shantiniketan has been reduced to a spectre of all that he fought against. Its spirit went with his death. I am writing all these because when we comment on great worthy personages we must educate ourselves a little about them. That is the irreducible minimum!

    Thanks a lot Chinmoy for all the details many of which I was unaware of...We need to evaluate any matter from every angle possible before making any rash judgment !


    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    Now they will also say he got Noble Prize because he praised the King. They will go to any length to spread ill feelings against national icons.
