Reading Rabindranath Tagore

I have been reading Gandhi's great contemporary, Rabindranath Tagore in English...Nehru called him the other great 20th century mind...allowing only Einstein into the trio but saying Tagore and Gandhi lived superior lives.

Tagore was the first to expose the flaws of nationalism in a coherent way. His ideas of learning are fascinating. He was well ahead of his time.
