Fulbright scholar’s talk on Bengali-Indian literary figure

February 28th, 2015 · No Comments

In these two lectures on the significance of the creative genius of  Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) and his development as a Bengali-Indian  literary figure of universal stature in the contexts of the East and the West in the dawn of the twentieth century, Dr. Rupendra Guha Majumdar first, drew attention to the  manifestation and  acknowledgment of his poetry in the West in collaboration with  the likes of  W.B.Yeats, Sir William Rothenstein, Ezra Pound and Harriet Munroe . The award of the Nobel Prize for Literature soon after, in 1913, further enhanced Tagore’s image of a new world prophet and intellectual and drew large crowds to his humanist  and, at times,  controversial  lectures. He spoke  about the self-destructive consequences of myopic Nationalism that the juggernaut of Imperialism  brought about at the cost of the peace and equanimity of the common man. Not only did he take a vital part in the independence movement against British colonialism in his own country, but he also protested against political exploitation in every corner of the world. Inspired by his philosophy and the qualities he projected, men and women—like C.F.Andrews, E.P. Thompson, Romain Rolland, Harriet Moody, Victoria Ocampo, W. B. Yeats, Ananda Coomaraswamy, and many more were drawn  to him and cherished his friendship and vision. As a seer, poet, essayist, novelist, musician, educationist and  late but expressive , septuagenarian   painter, Tagore travelled all over the world and also invited the world to his humble courtyard in the creation of his university in Santiniketan, Bengal. Till the last he dreamt of a world in which the East and the West would combine their individual resources and wisdom to ensure a peace and a state of fulfilment that would surpass the conflicts of nations. But when he died in 1941  that dream was yet to blossom into reality.
