Star is gone...(Footnote must read)

May 9, 2020


Star is gone but left a twinkle in the sky,
The deep passion and dedication in his eyes,
He was the blood of India,
The first person from the soil of my motherland to receive the noble price,
He was the one who gave Mahatma Ji his name,
Star is gone but left a twinkle in the sky.
One man, multiple talents.
He was famous all over the globe.
We sing his verses as the national anthems.
Star is gone but left a twinkle in the sky,
this twinkle gives me a spark of inspiration.
Guruji, we remember you, the blood of the nation.

This is about Rabindranath Tagore. Words are less to explain his talents. He is famous for his short stories, poems, and his book Gitanjali. He also contributed to India’s freedom struggle. Blessed with multiple talents like music, art. Popularly known as Gurudev, he titled Gandhi Ji as Mahatma. He is the only known person to have written the national anthems for two different countries. He wrote Jana Gana Mana, the national anthem for India, and Amar Sonar Bangla, the national anthem for Bangladesh. Today is his 159th birthday.  The line Star is gone but left a twinkle in the sky is inspired by his quote ‘
If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars.’

    Replying: I'm sorry, but you misunderstood the prompt. It's about a dream that I had that I published as a separate piece. So sorry for the confusion.
