Why is it said that Gandhiji and Rabindranath Tagore shared a unique relationship?

          Rabindranath Tagore played a significant role in our freedom movement. He wrote the national anthem for our country.

          Even though Gandhiji and Tagore had differences over various matters, their patriotism connected them.

          Tagore was the one who first addressed Gandhiji as the Mahatma, which means great soul. Gandhiji called Tagore, Gurudev. Tagore and Gandhiji met for the first time on March 6, 1915.

          Gandhiji changed the system of the Congress and introduced new methods such as the non-cooperation movement and civil disobedience. Rabindranath Tagore had some differences of opinion regarding these movements, and he opposed the burning of foreign clothes. In spite of his differences with Gandhiji, Tagore respected Gandhiji for his great influence on the life of Indians.
