Summary
Rabindranath Tagore was a Bengali polymath who reshaped Bengali literature and music

Birthday of Rabindra Nath Tagore is a regional Indian holiday celebrated in Tripura and West Bengal.

In his lifetime, Tagore celebrated his birthday on the Pochishe Baisakh - the 25th day of Baisakh, the first month in the Bengali calendar. The corresponding date on the western calendar is either May 7th, May 8th or May 9th.

In 1861, the year of his birth, Pochishe Baisakh was May 7th, which is why West Bengal observes the holiday on May 7th, while Tripura will observe the specific day that Pochishe Baisakh falls on.
