Remembering Rabindranath Tagore, President Kovind said, “Gurudev was a remarkable genius, who became the first Indian Nobel laureate. Gurudev Tagore is remembered every day as a poet who gave India its national anthem. He belongs to the entire world as he was a nationalist as well as an internationalist.”

He said this was possible due to the contribution of people like Gurudev Tagore and Swami Vivekananda.”

“Gurudev understood the multicolored and diverse culture of India and translated it into Rabindra Sangeet. He called Tagore’s teachings timeless and said the world stands to learn a great deal from his works,” he added.

The exponent of Manipuri dance Rajkumar Singhajit Singh was given the award for the year 2014. Chhayanaut, a cultural organization of Bangladesh was given the award for 2015 for its role in the promotion of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore’s works and Bangla arts.
