A good poet can only draw inspiration from the truth. Let there be no doubt that when Rabindranath Tagore wrote Indias national anthem, Jana Gana Mana- every line of the anthem was written keeping the truth firmly within his sight.This short bookMoreA good poet can only draw inspiration from the truth. Let there be no doubt that when Rabindranath Tagore wrote Indias national anthem, Jana Gana Mana- every line of the anthem was written keeping the truth firmly within his sight.This short book also highlights the work of another seer of the absolute truth namely A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Conciousness.What I have managed to do is to read Tagores poem through the eyes of Swami Prabhupada, a seer of the absolute truth. The mysteries of Tagores pure heart and those of his poem have been unraveled by the sound deductive logic of Swami Prabhupada, my guru without whose grace this book would not have been possible.This poem also seeks to dispel the myth that Jana Gana Mana was sung for King George V as a eulogy to him. Those were revolutionary times in India and Rabindranath Tagore was the poet who was inspiring the masses with his poetry and words. His intentions and words were noble and inspiring.
