Tagore and Education for Social Change

Mohit Chakrabarti (Author)
Synopsis Education is always an experience serene, vibrant, unending. For social change, it is something more than that. It is an exciting edventure for the excellence of ‘men’ in every man. Misunderstood and misinterpreted more often than not. Perhaps because of poverty of inward evaluation and depth of vision and more perhaps because of absence of appropriate appreciation to the multi-dimensional personality of an incomparable colossus, Rabindranath Tagore’s poignant thoughts and experiments on education for social change await a re-valuation right now. Social awareness, socio-aesthetic and socio-mystic fulfillment side by side with critical and creative appreciation are some of the iconoclastic and abiding parameters of his theory and practice on education for humanistic and social transcendence. Which mark a significant point of departure from ukasa in the name of education for the hoi polloi. Here is an in-depth study of Tagore’s unparalleled viewpoints and experiments on education for social change. A high time now for redirecting social change in the right perspective, Tagore and Education for Social Change might be a valuable contribution to Tagoreana and social education.
