Tagore was raised principally by servants; his mother had died in his time of life and his father traveled wide.[26] The Tagore family was at the forefront of the geographic area renaissance. They hosted the publication of literary magazines; theatre and recitals of Bengali and Western musical genre featured there often. Tagore’s father invited many skilled Dhrupad musicians to remain within the house and teach Indian musical genre to the youngsters.[27] Tagore’s oldest brother Dwijendranath was a thinker and author. Another brother, Satyendranath, was the primary Indian appointed to the elite and erstwhile all-European Indian officialdomone more brother, Jyotirindranath, was a musician, composer, and writer.[28] His sister Swarnakumari became a author.[29] Jyotirindranath’s married woman Kadambari Hindu deity, slightly older than Tagore, was an expensive friend and powerful influence. Her abrupt suicide in 1884, presently once he married, left him deeply agitated for years.[30]

Tagore mostly avoided room schooling and most well-liked to move the manor or close Bolpur and Panihati, that the family visited.[31][32] His brother Hemendranath taught and physically conditioned him—by having him swim the river or trek through hills, by gymanstic exercise, and by practising sport and wrestling. He learned drawing, anatomy, earth science and history, literature, arithmetic, Sanskrit, and English—his least favorite subject.[33] Tagore loathed formal education—his learned travails at the native Presidency faculty spanned one day. Years later he control that correct teaching doesn’t justify things; correct teaching stokes curiosity:[34]

After his upanayan (coming-of-age rite) at age eleven, Tagore and his father left city in February 1873 to tour Republic of India for many months, visiting his father’s Santiniketan estate and Amritsar before reaching the range of mountains hill station of Dalhousie. There Tagore browse biographies, studied history, astronomy, trendy science, and Sanskrit, and examined the classical poetry of Kālidāsa.[35][36] throughout his 1-month lodge in Amritsar in 1873 he was greatly influenced by melodious gurbani and religious leader bani being sung at Golden Temple that each father and son were regular guests. He mentions regarding this in his My Reminiscences (1912)
The golden temple of Amritsar comes back to Pine Tree State sort of a dream. many another morning have I accompanied my father to the current Gurudarbar of the Sikhs within the middle of the lake. There the sacred vocalizing resounds regularly. My father, sitting amidst the throng of worshippers, would generally add his voice to the hymn of praise, and finding a trespasser change of integrity in their devotions they’d wax sky-high cordial, and that we would come back loaded with the consecrated offerings of sugar crystals and alternative sweets.[37]
