To commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Kavi Guru and Nobel Prize winner Rabindranath Tagore, the Indian Railways had flagged off the Sanskriti Express from Howrah Railway Station on 9th May, by Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee. After stopping at several towns and cities enroute, including Kharagpur, Cuttack, Bhubaneshwar, Puri and Visakhapatnam, the travelling exhibition will be at the Secunderabad Railway Station from 29th September to 1st October, on Platform No. 10.

5 air-conditioned coaches have been modified at the Liluah Railway Workshop in Howrah to depict Tagore's achievements, thoughts, life and philosophy. The first coach, named Jibon Smriti, will depict the life of Tagore through photographs, while the second one named Gitanjali will exhibit his poems and songs.

The third coach, called Jogajog/Muktodhara, will exhibit his literature, and the fourth, Chitrarekha, will depict paintings of Tagore and other eminent artists. The last coach, Smaranika, will exhibit and sell handicrafts and other items from Shantiniketan, founded by the poet.

Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) is among the most revered writers in the world. He churned out poems, plays, songs, novels and short stories, and was the first Indian to win the Nobel prize, in 1913.

Entry to the exhibition is free, from 8am to 6pm, on all the 3 days. Please contact the venue for further details.
