Kabiguru Rabindranath’s 158th birth anniversary today

DHAKA: The nation is set to celebrate the 158th birth
anniversary of Biswakabi Rabindranath Tagore, who reshaped Bengali literature
and music as well as arts of Indian subcontinent with contextual modernism,
in a befitting manner across the country today.

On the 25th of Baishakh in 1268 Bengali year, Rabindranath, the
fountainhead of Bengali wisdom, was born at Jorasanko in Kolkata.

Nobody had influenced the minds of so many Bengali-speaking people before
or after him. His influence has been compared, by many, to Shakespeare in the
English-speaking world.

On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Rabindranath, President Abdul
Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages today, paying
rich tributes to the poet.

In observance of the day, different government, non-government, social and
cultural organisations and educational institutions have taken various
programmes to celebrate the birth anniversary of Kabiguru.

Marking the birth anniversary of Rabindranath, the main programme will be
held at the Jatiya Natyashala of the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the
city.

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni is expected to address the inaugural
function as the chief guest at 3 pm tomorrow while State Minister for
Cultural affairs K M Khalid will be present as the special guest.

Besides, Bangla Academy will organize solo lecture and cultural function
and distribute the Rabindra Award at Abdul Karim Sahityabisharad auditorium
of the academy at 11 am tomorrow to mark the day.

Dhaka University (DU) has also taken various programmes to celebrate the
birth anniversary of Rabindranath on the campus. A keynote presentation
titled ‘ Rabindranath in Building Human World’ and a cultural function will
be held at DU Teacher Student Center (TSC) Auditorium at 11am tomorrow.

DU Bangla Department Professor Dr Begum Akter Kamal will address the
function as the key speaker with DU Vice-Chancellor Professor Aktaruzzaman in
the chair.

Bangladesh Television and other private television channels and Bangladesh
Betar will air special programmes highlighting the life and works of
Rabindranath.

Law enforce agencies will provide stringent security vigilance during the
celebration of the birthday across the country.

The youngest of thirteen surviving children, Tagore, nicknamed ‘Rabi’, was
born on 25th of Bengali month of Baishakh in 1268 (May 7, 1861) in Jorasanko
Mansion in Kolkata to Debendranath Tagore and Sarada Devi.

His novels, short stories, songs, dance-dramas and essays always speak
about political and personal life of people.

Gitanjali (Song Offerings), Gora (Fair-Faced) and Ghare-Baire (The Home and
the World) are his best-known works and his verse, short stories and novels
were acclaimed-or panned-for their lyricism, colloquialism, naturalism and
unnatural contemplation.

Author of Gitanjali, profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse,
Rabindranath became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in
Literature in 1913.

Sometimes referred to as “the Bard of Bengal”, Tagore’s poetic songs were
viewed as spiritual and mercurial.

His compositions were chosen by two nations as national anthems:
Bangladesh’s Amar Sonar Bangla and India’s Jana Gana Mana. The Sri Lankan
national anthem was inspired by his work.

The legendary poet breathed his last at his paternal residence in Kolkata
on Sraban 22 of Bangla year 1348 (August 7, 1941).
