A painting, an essay and some music

That is Uma’s tribute to Tagore on his birthday; by a strange coincidence, I listed him along with other Bhakti poets in a post of mine today. Let me pay my tribute by quoting my favourite lines from Gitanjali:

Thou hast made me known to friends whom I knew not. Thou hast given me seats in homes not my own. Thou hast brought the distant near and made a brother of the stranger.
