Coincidences – Tagore and Taiwan



I happened to spend the other morning skipping round the interweb and read a post on the China Beat blog about philosophers touring round Republican China (click here) – Russell, Dewey and, of course, Tagore. After reading it I then stepped out for breakfast in the Tianmu suburb of Taipei and quite accidentally noticed that someone (no idea who or why) had placed a Tagore quote into the pavement. Couldn’t get a good picture but it’s:



‘I slept and dreamt that life was joy.
I awoke and found that life was service.
I acted, and behold, service was joy’






I asked the guy who owned the shop directly opposite when it had been put there and by who but he said he’d never noticed it before and had no idea who Tagore was. Still there it is.
