Repudiation of Knighthood

RavindraNath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore was a Bengali polymath who reshaped Bengali literature and music.
Repudiation of Knighthood

Tagore renounced his knighthood, in response to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in 1919. In the repudiation letter to the Viceroy, Lord Chelmsford, he wroteThe time has come when badges of honour make our shame glaring in the incongruous context of humiliation, and I for my part, wish to stand, shorn, of all special distinctions, by the side of those of my countrymen who, for their so called insignificance, are liable to suffer degradation not fit for human beings.
