Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was the youngest son of Debendranath Tagore, born in Calcutta. He was educated at home; and although at seventeen he was sent to England for formal schooling, he did not finish his studies there. Tagore participated in the Indian nationalist movement in his own visionary way; and Gandhi, the political father of modern India, was his devoted friend. He won the 1913 Nobel Prize for Literature. Tagore was knighted by the ruling British Government in 1915, but within a few years he resigned the honor as a protest against British policies in India.
