I took a bus from Kolkata to Shantiniketan and reached in the afternoon. My room was booked in a resort far from Shantiniketan in a small village called Ruppur in a beautiful resort called Mayas. They had a beautiful room for me which had several of Tagore's photos and poetry on frames. Tagore wrote the national anthem of Bangladesh apart from India. It seems he also inspired Ananda Samarakoon, a Sri Lankan who came to Visva Bharati (University founded by Tagore in Shantiniketan) who wrote the national anthem of Sri Lanka. I took a warm shower and had my lunch
