RABINDRANATH TAGORE

On returning to Calcutta, Rabi read the works of the poet-saints of Bengal like Vidyapati and Chandidas.

Rabl’s father was not satisfied with his son merely writing poems. He Vanted him to do something better. So he decided to send him to England. That was when Rabi was about seventeen.

Young Rabi prepared himself to go to England by learning conversational English and also reading a number of English poems. In England he stayed with an English family and studied in a school in Brighton. He found Latin difficult to master. He made up for it by reading a lot of English poetry and also studying European music.

His early upbringing and shyness helped him not to get spoiled by the new society.

Upon his return to India, Rabindranath started writing dramas and also acting in them. The story of Sravanakumar was the first play he wrote. Other plays were the
Sacrifice, the Sannyasi, etc.
