“Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it” – Rabindranath Tagore
A special assembly was conducted by the students of Manav Rachna International School, Ludhiana to mark the birth anniversary of the legend Rabindranath Tagore – the Principal artist and creator of the “Indian Society of Oriental Art”. Not just a poet or a painter, he is a man of many talents. He was a philosopher and educationist also who established a university that challenged conventional education.
During the assembly, the students said that Tagore was forever in pursuit of knowledge and had a daringly progressive lifestyle and was into multifarious cultural activities. Tagore was a proficient songwriter and composed 2,230 songs, which are often referred to as ‘Rabindra Sangeet’. He also wrote the national anthem for India – ‘Jana Gana Mana’ and for Bangladesh – ‘Aamaar Sonaar Banglaa’ for which, both nations will forever be indebted to him.
Speaking on the occasion, Principal Dr. Rupali Saini shared that Rabindranath Tagore continued his journey of life despite abandonment and lack of support from others. She also shared that MRIS, Ludhiana follows the education system prevailing years back in order to spearhead the progress throughout and give education a new definition. She ended by saying that sky is just the beginning, we have to surpass it and achieve the unachieveable.
