Rabindranath Tagore has a connection with International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program in many different aspects but, I chose to elaborate on his effort on becoming internationally popular with his works and knowledge. Although he was born and brought up in a small village and being home schooled, he had the confidence, courage and faith in himself and his work which brought him into the position he is in today. He started to write poetry in his teens and had a very high level of knowledge about the happenings in the society which can be seen in his work. This had led him to become an international poets and made him win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. With this knowledge and faith, he is an inspiration not only for I.B. but the entire world.
