Directions (Q.1 - 5) Read the following passage.
Rabindranath Tagore's emergence as an 'Educator' was completely a matter of personal development, a necessary outcome of the entire course of his life and experience. He was born into a house, which had been a center for, numerous ethnic and social movements and a nucleus of all sorts of progressive ideas and actions. Tagore absorbed all the rich and varied elements of eastern and western culture that made him a cosmopolitan. Tagore found his days in traditional school wasteful and oppressive. He had acquired more knowledge by self-education that gave shape and direction to his numerous powers and potentialities. He evolved as an educated par excellence. Tagore was at home in humanities as well as sciences; besides having a strong poetic sense, an in depth intuition with philosophy, and profound relation with music and arts. The tangible embodiment of this realization was Santi Niketan. It was founded on 21st December 1901 at the land purchased by his father Maharshi Debendranath to establish a place for meditation. Initially, there were five students, 'all boys and all Bengalis', four of them from Calcutta and the fifth the founder's son. Rabindranath Tagore himself described Santi Niketan as his "tangible poem', as the boat, the 'golden boat' 'sonar tori' carried the best cargo of his life. In a letter to the Prince of Tripura, the poet educator wrote 'I wish to keep my students away from all the luxuries of European life and any blind infatuation with Europe and thus lead them in the ways of sacred and unsullied Indian tradition of poverty.' The world responded and honoured him not merely as a poet, but as a Poet Educator, as Gurudeva! Now answer the following questions choosing the right option.
