Rabindranath Tagore

(1861 – 1941)

 

Sir Rabindranath Tagore je bio indijski pjesnik, skladatelj i dramaturg.

Rabindranath Tagore was a Bengali polymath who reshaped Bengali literature and music, as well as Indian art with Contextual Modernism
in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

 

""On many an idle day have I grieved over lost time. But it is never lost, my lord." — Rabindranath Tagore in the "Gitanjali"

"Gitanjali" is one of Rabindranath Tagore's best known works for which he received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913.

Tagore was born in an extremely rich upper-caste Pirali Brahmin family in Jorasanko mansion.
His family members were highly educated and intellectual and hence whoever got married into the family got educated themselves.

Kadambari Devi was Rabindranath's elder brother Jyotindranath's wife. She was nine when she entered the house as a bride and Rabindranath was seven.
She was Rabindranath's childhood companion and they both grew up together. After the death of his mother, their friendship turned into a motherly affection.
And soon it was transformed into a romantic relationship.
Their relationship progressed through three stages; firstly as his childhood princess, secondly as a mother and thirdly when both of them fell in love with poetry.
She was considered the woman who looked after him in his early life and was part of his success in his later life.
Tagore gave her a nickname "Hecate" the name of a Greek Goddess, linked to moon but also to witchcraft and magic.
Kadambari on the other hand called him Bhanu for sun.

Like Rabindranath, Jyotindranath also possessed multiple skills; he had a keen interest in painting, editing, and music.
He translated many books from different languages in Bengali.
He looked after his family business and later started his own venture which incurred a heavy loss and soon he opted out of it.
He was an open-minded person who helped Kadambari Devi to pursue her education and also taught her horse-riding.
He had a busy schedule and could hardly spare much time for his wife. Hence she always felt lonely and starved for companionship.

In 1883, when Tagore turned 22 he got married to Bhabatarini Devi who was 11-year-old then. Tagore renamed her Mrinalini.
Kadambari Devi never wanted Tagore to get married; she secretly tried to stop his marriage but was unsuccessful.
She thought that his marriage would distance them and she would lose all the rights she had over him.
On April 19, 1884, 4 months and 10 days after Tagore's marriage, Kadambari Devi committed suicide by consuming opium.
After Kadambari Devi's death, Rabindranath was completely broken.

For long after her death, he wrote many songs and poems in her memory.

After 4 years of Kadambari's death Tagore wrote a poem which is a well known Rabindra Sangeet or Rabindranath Tagore Songs "Tobu Mone Rekho".
This was written in her memory being in her place as if she was telling him: "Yet, do remember, if I move far from here, yet, do remember.
If the old love is smothered by a love's new snare"... and so on.

During a meeting with Nandalal Bose, Rabindranath confessed that most of his paintings with woman's face were created keeping Kadambari's face in mind.
And this confession was made when Tagore was 70 years old.

Prezime EZGETA —  Surname EZGETA

je najvjerojatije po podrijetlu motivirano zanimanjem: prvonositelj je bio po zanimanju EGZETA.
Tumacio je, objasnjavao i iznosio kriticka objasnjenja biblijskih i drugih vjerskih i pravnih tekstova.

(gl. e x e g e i s t h a i = pokazati put, voditi (voditi van), izloziti, objasniti, tumaciti itd.)

Neka istrazivanja migracija EZGETA kazu da su EZGETA bili Grci koji su se sa otoka Krete,
prije nego sto je rimski vojskovoða Quintus Caecilius Metellus Creticus (c. 135 BC – late 50s BC) osvojio Kretu 69. pne - 69 BC,
