One of the most important philosophers in Indian history is perhaps Rabindranath Tagore who lived from 1861 to 1941. He was a writer, artist, musician, painter and scholar. He was the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913 and was knighted by King George V in 1915. However, Tagora renounced his knighthood in 1919 after the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre as an act of protest against the British colonial regime. Tagore’s philosophy is still an important part of the Indian society. His song Jana Gana Mana has been adapted as the National Anthem of India, and the university town Santiniketan has been built on his philosophy.
