Rabindranath Tagore
“The young student sits with his head bent over his books, and his mind straying in youth's dreamland; where prose is prowling on the desk and poetry hiding in the heart.”
Rabindranath Tagore, Lover's Gift

Rabindranath Tagore
“আমরা আরম্ভ করি, শেষ করি না; আড়ম্বর করি, কাজ করি না; যাহা অনুষ্ঠান করি তাহা বিশ্বাস করি না; যাহা বিশ্বাস করি তাহা পালন করি না; ভূরিপরিমাণ বাক্যরচনা করিতে পারি, তিলপরিমাণ আত্মত্যাগ করিতে পারি না; আমরা অহংকার দেখাইয়া পরিতৃপ্ত থাকি, যোগ্যতালাভের চেষ্টা করি না; আমরা সকল কাজেই পরের প্রত্যাশা করি, অথচ পরের ত্রুটি লইয়া আকাশ বিদীর্ণ করিতে থাকি; পরের অনুকরণে আমাদের গর্ব, পরের অনুগ্রহে আমাদের সম্মান, পরের চক্ষে ধূলিনিক্ষেপ করিয়া আমাদের পলিটিকস্‌, এবং নিজের বাক্‌চাতুর্যে নিজের প্রতি ভক্তিবিহ্বল হইয়া উঠাই আমাদের জীবনের প্রধান উদ্দেশ্য।”
Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore
“By all means they try to hold me secure who love me in this world.
But it is otherwise with thy love which is greater than theirs, and thout keepst me free.
Lest I forgot them they never venture to leave me alone. But day passes by after day and thou art not seen.
If I call not thee in my prayers, if I keep not thee in my heart, thy love for me still waits for my love.”
Rabindranath Tagore

“Modernisasi pada akhirnya memang suatu permainan kekuatan. Ada yang tergusur, ada yang menggusur. Ada yang menang, ada yang telantar lemah. Tapi jangan salah kira: di zaman seperti ini, yang lemah tak akan tinggal jadi gurun: “yang lemah berbahaya bagi yang kuat, sebagaimana pasir hanyut berbahaya bagi si gajah,“ kata Tagore tentang dunia modern.”
Goenawan Mohamad, Catatan Pinggir 1

Amit Chaudhuri
“Tagore claims that the first time he experienced the thrill of poetry was when he encountered the children’s rhyme ‘Jal pare/pata nare’ (‘Rain falls / The leaf trembles) n Iswrchandra Vidyasagar’s Bengali primer Barna Parichay (Introducing the Alphabet). There are at least two revealing things about this citation. The first is that, as Bengali scholars have remarked, Tagore’s memory, and predilection, lead him to misquote and rewrite the lines. The actual rhyme is in sadhu bhasha, or ‘high’ Bengali: ‘Jal paritechhe / pata naritechhe’ (‘Rain falleth / the leaf trembleth’). This is precisely the sort of diction that Tagore chose for the English Gitanjali, which, with its these and thous, has so tried our patience. Yet, as a Bengali poet, Tagore’s instinct was to simplify, and to draw language closer to speech. The other reason the lines of the rhyme are noteworthy, especially with regard to Tagore, is – despite their deceptively logical progression – their non-consecutive character. ‘Rain falls’ and ‘the leaf trembles’ are two independent, stand-alone observations: they don’t necessarily have to follow each other. It’s a feature of poetry commented upon by William Empson in Some Versions of Pastoral: that it’s a genre that can get away with seamlessly joining two lines which are linked, otherwise, tenuously.”

Neel Mukherjee
“Dhiren broke the silence by starting to hum a tune under his breath,,,, 'The smile of the moon has spilled over its banks'......I was filled with - with what? An affectionate contempt? A sense of ridicule? Shock that Dhiren, the earthy, self-styled tough guy, had any truck with the kind of music he'd consider effeminate? Tagore seemed to be carried inside all Bengalis, regardless of class or social background, like some inheritable disease, silent, unknown, until it manifested itself at the unlikeliest of times. How irredeemably middle class all this was: The Little Red Book and On Practice on the one hand; on the other hand, the poetry of Jibanananda Das in his cloth sidebag and a coy, cloying Tagore song almost involuntary on his lips. There really was no hope of escape for us.

...... For god's sake, Mao by day and Tagore by moonlight?

Dhiren didn't miss a beat - That's quintessential Bengali soul for you.”
Neel Mukherjee, The Lives of Others
