9 May 2013 marks the 152nd Birth Anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore. As our humble tribute to the great poet, a set of rare photographs of Rabindranath Tagore has been published in the online forum of Overman Foundation. All these photographs—with the exception of the first snapshot (taken in Japan) and the last two taken at Pondicherry in 1928 in which Tagore is seen descending from the ship on his way to meet Sri Aurobindo—have been sent to us by Mr. Nilesh Nathwani. We take the opportunity to thank him for his generous gift.
With warm regards,
