Kabi Jayanti will be held in June at Winchester High School, MA
Rabindranath Tagore, the poet, visual artist, playwright, novelist, and composer is our national treasure. While Kawabata describes Tagore as "this sage-like poet", WB Yeats writes that his writings 'have stirred my blood as nothing has for years'. Kobiguru's pan-humanism philosophy makes him as germane today as he was in his heydays. He continues to be a refuge to our sundry emotions - our validation for joy, our panacea of pain, our flicker to fight despair, our raison d'Ãªtre of sustenance. Bengalees of New England is immensely honored to celebrate his birthday and pay tribute to this towering icon.
