In our first session of the Global Thinkers of the International Discussion Series join us in a discussion with P.K. Dutta from Jawaharlal Nehru University, to speak on the life and international thought of Rabindranath Tagore.

Tagore was the first Asian to win a Nobel Prize and is widely admired for his poetry, plays, and novels. He was also a prescient political thinker, a humanist, universalist and internationalist. Tagore's visionary internationalism had a profound impact on the ideas of Mahatma Gandhi, and on Jawaharlal Nehru, the first and longest-serving Prime Minister of India.
