Rabindranath Tagore was a Bengali polymath and the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. As a poet, novelist, musician, and playwright, he reshaped Bengali literature and music in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. (Xinhua/Tumpa Mondal)

She told me that my dad's coronary heart disease is getting worse and can't do very difficult work in the future. My mom paused for a very long time without saying a word since she was so sad. My parents are getting old. The shines on mom's look are gone and wrinkles appeared on dad's face. I cried for a long time and swore to myself that I have to grow up and enter the university quickly. Someday, I can be their umbrella." (Xinhua / Bai Yu)
