Tagore was the first Asian to win the Nobel Prize for literature.
Tagore was the first Asian to win the Nobel Prize for literature. He received the Nobel Prize for poetry in 1913. He, however, had denied Knighthood in protest against the Jalianwalla Bagh massacre in 1919.
Earlier also, Deb received flak for his statements.
On April 29, Deb advised the educated youth in his state to "set up paan shops instead of running after political parties for several years to get government jobs and waste the vital time of their life".
On April 18, Deb said that the internet was invented by India lakhs of years ago.
