His contribution to the field of art and literature is immense. He was the first Non-European who received the Nobel Prize in the year of 1913 for his collection of poetry named Gitanjali. He was conferred the Knighthood by King George V in 1915 but renounced it after the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in 1919.
