    Really, Tagore is one of the greatest poets of the world. He was born in Bengal, in undivided Indian sub-continent. Therefore, He belongs to Bengal, which also include Bangladesh, the soil of which country inspires some of his greatest songs an stories. his poetic inspiration is rooted in Shilaidah, Bangladesh. We are proud of Him.

    Hello, I'm desperatly looking for a translation of the poem Kothay lukiye thako and would be very grateful for help! Thanks a lot

Fool

O Fool, try to carry thyself upon thy own shoulders!
O beggar, to come beg at thy own door!

Leave all thy burdens on his hands who can bear all,
and never look behind in regret.

Thy desire at once puts out the light from the lamp it touches with its breath.
It is unholy---take not thy gifts through its unclean hands.
Accept only what is offered by sacred love.
