Welcome front cover
Tagore – The Big Vision

In this special edition, we pay tribute to Rabindranath Tagore with feature articles on his extraordinary life and work, his wisdom and ideas. This issue looks at Tagore’s relevance today — not just his poetry, prose, painting and music, but also his practical achievements in education and agriculture.

In this issue we do more than recognise the relevance of Tagore’s wisdom, we celebrate and share his ideals and aspirations of harmony, wholeness and integrity to which he dedicated his whole life.
