Well their is always some truth..I think that comes with winning Noble Prize..I guess only the connected gets this types of recognition..if not Tagore wrote more on expressing his view of Humanitarian side then now one else expresses it the way..well many things are said about Tagore, in that aspect very few has achieved that type of recognition..that even to days Pakistan, India & Bangaldesh have national anthem written by same Tagore..yes..PAK SIR JAMIN is also written by Tagore..
Their is this what email sender hints of..Tagore was some what blinded..out of anger and frustration..only if you know Tagore family life many things are told about it..the fact is he is one lost his children very early on in his life, that is some thing to bear..as father..DIPTHERIA..has any one faced it..well some time parents are made scape goat for their children illness..to be specific, male parents..

Ravindranath Tagore or his works does not represent the general
People of Bangladesh. He and his works represent culturally the upper privileged class which exploited the poor peasants of Bangladesh.Therefore stop promoting such ideas which only help those who are gathering momentum to destroy any or whatever
Bangladeshi Muslim culture is left.
Also please don't forget the speech Tagore delivered in 1921 opposing the establishment of Dhaka University himself presiding over a public meeting in Gorermat Calcutta.
