London – Bloomsbury 9

Another Indian writer, Rabindranath Tagore, is remembered with a bust in Gordon Square, Bloomsbury. In 1912, while travelling by ship from India to England, Tagore translated his collection of Bengali poems, called “Gitanjali”, into English. He was the first Asian to be awarded the Nobel prize for literature.
