A bronze bust of India’s Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was inaugurated in the Literary Garden of prestigious Katholieke Universiteit (KU) Leuven in Belgium on his birthday May 7.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, welcomed the KU Leuven’s gesture of honoring Tagore; who besides being the first non-European to receive Nobel Prize in literature, also composed the national anthems of India and Bangladesh, authored Gitanjali and established India’s Visva Bharati University.

Calling it a step in the positive direction, Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, urged other European universities to honor the intellectuals of East, thus bridging the East-West gap, which was the need of the hour.

Founded in 1425 by Pope Martin V, Belgium’s largest and renowned research-intensive university KU Leuven with a mission of “providing high-quality interdisciplinary research and education with a Catholic signature” has over 41,000 students. Rik Torfs is the Rector of this female-majority university.
