PREVIEW FOR BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS OF RAVINDRANATH TAGORE
To eulogize him would be mocking at the limitation of the English language for
enough words of praise. To put it simply, he remains the patron saint of literature
and the arts in India. His compositions are a different genre in themselves. He
made us realize that even people with darker skins can win the Nobel Prize.
And on the occasion of his birth anniversary, a celebration of his life is mandatory. Because it made history. On this day, Tagore's scriptures and plays are staged and songs are sung across Bengal and other parts of India. The multi faceted genius' contribution towards art is celebrated throughout the country.
Bangiya Samskritik Sangh, in association with the Department of Culture, is celebrating Sri Ravindranath Tagore's 140th birthday. There will be two dance ballets of Tagore - Chitrangada and Bhanusinger Padabali - staged, with the multilingual Rabindra Sangeeth to mark the occasion. Please contact Bangiya Samskritik Sangh / S Appa Rao at 324-2482 for details.
