Rabindranath Thakur (7 May 1861–7 August 1941), a Bangalee Brahmin, was a poet, writer, playwright, composer, philosopher, social reformer and painter. Author of the "profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse" of Song Offerings,—a collection of 103 songs and lyrics, chosen from his ten books of poems and lyrics and one drama, translated by him,—he was the first non-European, and only Bangalee till date, to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913.. Tagore`s poetic lyrics and verses were viewed as replete with elements of mysticism. He established Visva-Bharati University in Kolkata. The following five sonnets, translated in English, are chosen from this great poet’s a famous book of verses titled Kori O Kamo.
