Overview: Gitanjali

Rabindranath Tagore has always been the voice of India's spiritual, cultural and literary heritage. An exponent of the Indian Renaissance movement, he was the first Indian to be awarded a Nobel Prize in Literature. Rabindranath Tagore's Gitanjali was praised by the great Irish poet, William Butler Yeats and the American poet, Ezra Pound back in 1913. Gitanjali, also known as Song Offerings, is a commendable work of literature, which comprises poems with strong devotional connotations. The English adaptation of Gitanjali is famous in the West for the immensely sensitive feel and freshness of the verses. Tagore, who etched the face of Bengali literature internationally, is also acclaimed for his works like Gora, Ghare-Bhaire, Chokher Bali and the national anthem of two nations – India and Bangladesh.

Tagore narrates the simplicities of life through his set of poems in Gitanjali. The demystified joys of nature, eagerness to see the sun after a storm, altercations between God and Man's tribulations and the complete devotion of a human towards God; these are the various moods that have been captured beautifully in the verses. Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore is full of color, grace, emotions and reflections. It inspires about the birth of life, the fallacy of death and man's pursuit for the divine. It is incredible that Tagore composed these soul searching songs during the most tough times of his life. This English adaptation of Gitanjali or Song Offerings comprises 103 poems with an introduction by none other than W.B.Yeats. Reading a verse from Gitanjali literally transcends you from all your worries and the monotony of your daily life.

    Book Review: Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore: A Journey To Infinity To Discover Yourself

    You need to have a big appetite to digest each and every word of Gitanjali written by Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore (1861 - 1941). The work was originally written in Bengali published over different Bengali books on poetry from where 103 poems have been picked, compiled and consolidated in this book. The translation has been done from Bengali to English by Rabindranath Tagore himself. Gitanjali in literal meaning denotes an offering of a handful of songs.

    Gitanjali when was released first in August 1910, just one day before the date that became our Independence Day later (15th August). And then Gitanjali made Rabindranath Tagore the first non-European to win a Nobel for Literature in 1913. The book shook the whole world and placed India, Rabindranath Tagore and Gitanjali on international arena of literature.

    These poems are only numbered, not titled. Hence each poem brings a different meaning to each of its reader without getting drifted away by the preconception got generated by reading a title. Each of the poem is thought provoking, intriguing, deeply meaningful and motivational. These poems in Gitanjali are building blocks of anyone within. You read a poem post which it forces you to interrogate yourself, discuss it with yourself to get deeper and deeper to conclude it.

    In poem no XXXVI Tagore seems to be interacting/ conversing with God telling to accept his prayer to him and fill in the unfilled portion within his heart. Tagore prays to God to give him strength to absorb his joys and sorrows faced in life and not to get drifted away by them. He further adds to his prayer to God to shower his blessings so that love becomes meaningful in life.
