In 1883 Rabindranath was married to Mrinalini Devi. She unfortunately passed away prematurely in 1902. In 1903 and ‘1907, the poet lost his’ second daughter Renuka and his youngest son Samindranath respectively. His father Maharshi Debendranath also passed away in 1905. Thus Tagore was
greatly treubled by series of family misfortunes. In 1913 he ms awarded the Nobel Prize for literature for his collection of songs in English titled ‘Gitanjali’. He was also honoured with knighthood by the British Covt. But in 1919 he gave it up in protest against the Jallian we labagh massacre.
