Biography Sunayani Devi
Sunayani Chattopadhyay, popularly known as Sunayani Devi, was born in 1875 in Jorasanko Thakur Bari, the ancestral home of the Tagores, one of Bengal’s most well-known aristocratic families. Her uncle Rabindranath Tagore was a celebrated polymath and Asia’s first Nobel laureate, and her brothers Abanindranath and Gaganendranath Tagore were respected painters and teachers. Together, the family led the artistic and literary renaissance that swept through India from the heart of Bengal in the nineteenth century.
