A tribute to rabindranath tagore: Nation to celebrate his 150th birth anniversary

“Creation is not repetition, or correspondence in every particular between the object and its artistic presentation. The world of reality is all around us. When I look at this phenomenon with my artist’s eye, things are revealed in a different light which I try and recapture in my picture – call them realistic or not. There is a world of dreams and fantasies which exists only in a man’s imagination. If I can but depict this in my pictures I can beat the Creator at His own game.”

— Rabindranath Tagore
