August 7, 1941, Calcutta. On this day, a period of prolonged, agonizing illness ended with the death of Rabindranath Tagore at his Jorasanko home. The Bengali calendar read: 22 Shrabon, 1349. Every year, the 22nd day of Shrabon, irrespective of the Gregorian or ‘English’ calendar, has therefore been a day of mourning in Bengal.
