Thou hast made me known to friends whom I knew not.

#Gītāñjali, a collection of poetry, the most famous work by #Rabindranath Tagore, published in India in 1910. Tagore then translated it into prose poems in English, as Gitanjali: Song Offerings, and it was published in 1912 with an introduction by William Butler Yeats.

The major theme in Gitanjali is devotion to God.

Gitanjali or “The Song Offerings” is a reflection of Rabindranath's consciousness, wisdom & philosophy. The original work, which was published on August 14 1910, comprised 157 songs. The English version was released in November 1912 by the India Society of London.

Today, on 161st Birth Anniversary of Gurudev Tagore I am going to present verse no3 from Gitanjali for you all.

The original verse is - কত অজানারে জানাইলে তুমি, কত ঘরে দিলে ঠাঁই

In English - 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. (Geetanjali, Verse-3)
