Indoindians Weekly Newsletter: Remembering Rabindranath Tagore

Namaste Friends,

May 7th celebrates Rabindranath Tagore’s birthday. In July 1927, at a send-off to his journey to Singapore, Malaya, Java, Borneo, Sumatra and Indonesia on a three and a half month Southeast Asian tour, Tagore said that he was going on a pilgrimage to India beyond its modern political boundaries.

One of the poems from this trip is ‘Sagarika‘ or originally ‘Bali’ wherein Tagore implores in his travels to Indonesia.

I come as your guest, I said ‘In your woods by the sea where the south wind blows. My veena is all I have with me. Look at me; see if you recognize me’
