About Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941)

Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was the youngest son of Debendranath Tagore, a leader of the Brahmo Samaj, which was a new religious sect in nineteenth-century Bengal and which attempted a revival of the ultimate monistic basis of Hinduism as laid down in the Upanishads. He was educated at home; and although at seventeen he was sent to England for formal schooling, he did not finish his studies there. In his mature years, in addition to his many-sided literary activities, he managed the family estates, a project which brought him into close touch with common humanity and increased his interest in social reforms. He also started an experimental school at Shantiniketan where he tried his Upanishadic ideals of education. From time to time he participated in the Indian nationalist movement, though in his own non-sentimental and visionary way; and Gandhi, the political father of modern India, was his devoted friend. Tagore was knighted by the ruling British Government in 1915, but within a few years he resigned the honour as a protest against British policies in India.

Tagore had early success as a writer in his native Bengal. With his translations of some of his poems he became rapidly known in the West. In fact his fame attained a luminous height, taking him across continents on lecture tours and tours of friendship. For the world he became the voice of India's spiritual heritage; and for India, especially for Bengal, he became a great living institution.

No biography writer of Rabindranath Tagore on the topics of “Research of Rabindranath Tagore” could not be able to collect with proper documents, said Mr. Shachindranath Adhikari in is book “Shelaidah and Rabindranath.” 

Mr. Sachindranath Adhikari was born in Shelaidah and he was the office employee of Tagore Estate at Shelaidah andCalcutta. In his service experiences, he gathered some knowledge of Rabindranath Tagore. And Tag-ore state. On the basis of this knowledge he was capable of write down the book “ Shelaidaha O Rabindranath”  which was first published in 25th January 1974, in CalcuttaIndia. 

Now some working of Rabindranath Tagore as An Infrastructure Development Specialist (IDS) at Shelaidaha, which is used as a reference “Shelaidaha O Rabindranath” Chapter: Fieere chala Matir tane (Return to the earth by attraction), clause: Jamidary Parichalona (Directive of the estate), Page no.75-82. 

Now I am coming to the point “Development of Ideal village Lahini” which was taken from that book.

The topics on Jyotirindranath Tagore and the Historical Village Lahini” are followed.

He was a man of creative minded. He had a Hobby and a Dream to establish a sustainable green ideal village in Nadia district named as “Lahini” by developing infrastructures and also where all type of man will live there. In before 1900, east India co. made a plan to construct a railway bridge over river Kaliganga. River Kaliganga is a branch of Gorai river, which is main earning source of many villages,many farmers surrounding the river. For that reasons, Jyotirindranath suggested east India co. to divert the railway in other track to reach the river Gorai beyond village Lahini. But the rail co. became rigid in their decision violating Tagore's request. At last, Jyotirindranath Tagore requested them to construct another bridge like Gorai Railway Bridge . If they revised the estimate, then the cost of that contract would be increased. Showing this issue Railway Company could not allow his request. Before this period Estarn railway company decided to construct a railway truss bridge over the river Gauri in the south side of the tagure estate. At that period there were a mauja near to river Kaliganga which was under the jurisdiction of tagore estate. Railway authority................to be continued.
