Brainly, India’s doubt-solving platform conducted a nationwide online survey of students to mark the birth month of Rabindranath Tagore. The survey sought to gauge how much students today know about the revered polymath, poet, philosopher, musician, writer and educationist.

According to the findings, 55.9 per cent of all students polled knew Tagore was born in Kolkata and 66.7 per cent of students from Kolkata responded correctly to the same question. 43.9 per cent of students from Kolkata knew May 7th was the great poet’s date of birth and 38.7 per cent of all students responded correctly to his date of birth.

Rabindranath Tagore became the first Asian to win the Nobel Prize in 1913, 41 per centof respondents from Kolkata and 37.6 per cent of all students answered correctly. Gurudev won the Nobel Prize for his collection of poems, Gitanjali. To the question of which book by him is part of the UNESCO Collection of Representative Works, 50.2 per cent of all students and 55.25 per cent of students from Kolkata polled responded correctly. The Brainly Knowledge Base has over 10, 000 questions and answers on Rabindranath Tagore. On Gitanjali, some of the insights received from Brainly’s Knowledge Base is that the book was originally written in Bangla during 1908-1909 and later its English version in prose was published under the title 'The Song offerings'. In 1913 Gurudev became the first non-European to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature.
