Paying tribute to Nobel Laureate Poet Rabindranath Tagore on his 77th death anniversary, which marks the 22nd Srabon of the Bangla calendar, Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) arranged a cultural programme followed by a discussion event at its National Music and Dance auditorium yesterday.

Presided over by BSA director general Liaquat Ali Lucky, Dhaka University professor Akhter Kamal attended the event as the main discussant.

In the cultural segment, artistes of the BSA presented a group dance with the song ‘Aguner Porosh Moni’. Then, dance artistes, led by Sharmila Bandyopadhyay performed group dances with the song ‘Amar Muktir Aloy Aloy’ and ‘Uriye Dhwaja’,  and performed dances with the songs ‘Jodi Tor Dak Sune Keo Na Ase’ and ‘Hingsay Unmotto Prithibi’ led by Warda Rihab at the event.

Besides, in the solo segment, singer Sushmita Ahmed Borna rendered songs ‘Ei Korechho Bhalo Nithur He’ and ‘Badol Diner Prothom Kodom Phul’, while Fahim Hossain Chowdhury rendered ‘Aro Koto Dure Achhe Se’, Iffat Ara Dewan rendered ‘Dwip Nibhe Gechhe Momo’ and Kamalika Chakraborty rendered ‘Amar Sokol Dukkher Pradip’. Bulbul Islam and Semonti Monjuri also took part in solo rendition.

Besides, Syed Hasan Imam recited Tagore’s poems from the book titled ‘Surjobarta’ at the event.  

Born on May 7, 1861 at Jorasanko in Kolkata, Tagore was the fountainhead of Bengali literature, culture and wisdom.

Nobody has influenced the minds of so many Bengali-speaking people as he has done. His influence has been compared by many to that of Shakespeare in the English-speaking world. Tagore received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913.

For Bangladesh, Tagore holds special significance. His poems and songs inspired the nation during its most difficult years. One of his songs, “Amar Sonar Bangla” (My Golden Bengal), was chosen as Bangladesh’s national anthem.
