2011 - Rabindranath Tagore 150th Birth Anniversary - Proof Set

This Post gives the details of Proof Set. For UNC Set refer to the Next Post

The Year 2010 also marked the 125th Birth Anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore. To commemorate this a Proof Set and UNC Set was released. This was the First time a coin of denomination Rs 150 was released. Actually the 150 Years of Income Tax was to be the first issue in the denomination of Rs 150. However the actual release was of Tagore. Following are the details; 



Rabindranath Tagore (7 May 1861 – 7 August 1941) sobriquet Gurudev, was a Bengali poet, novelist, musician, painter and playwright who reshaped Bengali literature and music. As author of Gitanjali with its "profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse", he was the first non-European and the only Indian to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. His poetry in translation was viewed as spiritual, and this together with his mesmerizing persona gave him a prophet-like aura in the west. His "elegant prose and magical poetry" still remain largely unknown outside the confines of Bengal.
Tagore had been writing poetry since he was eight years old. At age 16, he published his first substantial poetry under the pseudonym Bhanushingho ("Sun Lion") and wrote his first short stories and dramas in 1877. Tagore achieved further note when he denounced the British Raj and supported Indian independence. His efforts endure in his vast canon and in the institution he founded, Visva-Bharati University.
Tagore modernised Bengali art by spurning rigid classical forms. His novels, stories, songs, dance-dramas, and essays spoke to political and personal topics. Gitanjali (Song Offerings), Gora (Fair-Faced), and Ghare-Baire (The Home and the World) are his best-known works, and his verse, short stories, and novels were acclaimed for their lyricism, colloquialism, naturalism, and contemplation. Tagore was perhaps the only litterateur who penned anthems of two countries – Jana Gana Mana, the Indian national anthem and Amar Shonar Bangla, the Bangladeshi national anthem.

Proof Set: Both Coins of Rs 150 and Rs 5
