Rabindranath Tagore’s Best Quotes about Life Inspire to Travel India

The poems about life, the poems about death, and the poems about love by Rabindranath Tagore are inspirational poems, which are as eternal as Time. One of the most popular Rabindranath Tagore poems is “Ora Kaj Kore” in Bengali or “They Work” in English. As the title suggests, the poem celebrates the never-fading existence, tireless contribution and unfathomable labor of working people all over the world. The sun rises and sets; one year ends and another begins; tomorrow becomes today and passes into yesterday; empires rise and fall; monuments are built and ruined. But, the global community of working people never ceases to exist. They work endlessly in a cycle, live at the bottom of economic heaps and continue pushing the wheels of civilization forward. They count many times more than the people from other reaches of the socio-economic ladder. Be it a festival or natural calamity, nothing deters them from daily wage. They are never at rest. Men at work are the unsung heroes of the world for generations. Indian Eagle pays tribute to men at work on Rabindranath Tagore’s birthday through the best quotes about life.
