Rabindranath Tagore - Controversies

10 out of 10 Bengalis have heard about Rabindranath Tagore, 8 of those 10 have read at least something that he has written and 5 of those 8 remember what he/she has read sometime or the other. I don't know whether there is any other writer in this whole world who has had such a tremendous influence on 1 sect of people.

So, it was quite interesting to know, that 1 of his very famous compositions, 'Purano Sei Diner Kotha', a soft lifting tune talking of beautiful bygone days, is actually lifted from a Spanish tune. Of course, if you tell this to any average Calcuttan, then he will be up in arms - but then it is indeed true. You can hear the both of them out here

Another controversy surrounding Rabindranath is regarding the National Anthem of India. Some say that he had written it to welcome King George V in 1911. Of course, the purists deny this vehemently.

Of course, if you are famous, then controversies shall indeed follow you. Its true for Rabindranath too.
