Kolkata, May 10 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS): Only a genius like Rabindranath Tagore can take liberty in new musical creations, feels Sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan.
Painter Jogen Chowdhury said, “I am from Santiniketan. I still stay there. Tagore is someone who has to be known from inside. He had a vision for Bengal. He wanted a society where everything is ideal.
“We just read Tagore, but we need to understand and feel him. He has talked about education, unity, freedom of women and man-woman relationship. He is the universal man.”
“Discussing Tagore’s writing cannot be commercial,” he said.
Speaking on this occasion, Dilip Doshi, CMD, Entrack International Private Ltd (Exclusive Distributors in India for Montblanc) , said, “When Dakshinee approached me with the year-long celebrations of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore’s 150th birth anniversary, I personally felt it would be both a privilege and an honour for Montblanc to be closely involved with this very emotional and cultural journey. “
Union Minister Saugata Roy, BJP leader Tathagata Roy and actor Bhisma Guha Thakurta were also present at the event.
