Rabindranath Tagore was such a poet whose passion was to depict human emotions and sentiments as such. He was a poet who knew the pulse of humankind-a painter whose pictures have the myriad hues of eternal love; a dramatist in whose stagecraft not only dreadful tragedies of life come alive but also the insatiable yearnings and aspirations of living live come to the brim. He chose his characters from everyday parlour not because their life revolved around innumerable sufferings but by delineating them, he made us ever aware of life’s unending saga. He was well aware of the contemporary philosophical, political and sociological trends of the day. That’s why he is the narrator of life’s eternal aspirations.
