Nation set to celebrate Rabindranath’s birthday today

DHAKA:  The nation is set to celebrate the 156th birth anniversary of Biswakabi Rabindranath Tagore, who reshaped Bengali literature and music as well as art of Indian subcontinent with contextual modernism, 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.

President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate message on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore.

The government has drawn up massive programmes to celebrate the birthday of Kabiguru.

The main programme would be held at Patisar in Naogaon district which carries the memories of Rabindranath.

President Abdul Hamid will join the inaugural ceremony as the chief guest at Debendra Manch of Rabindra Katchary Bari at 2.30pm on May 8.

Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor will chair the function while Minister for Textile and Jute Imajuddin Pramanik and Naogaon-6 lawmaker Md Israfil Alam will attend it as the special guests.

The theme of the birth anniversary celebration of this year is “Religion of Human Beings: Rabindranath and Contemporary Relevance” while essayist-poet Professor Hayat Mamud would deliver memorial speech at the inaugural ceremony.

A 30-minute cultural episode under the management of Bangladesh
Shilpakala Academy would be staged later.

Apart from the main programme, the birth anniversary of the noble
laureate legendary Bengali poet would be observed with festivity and
enthusiasm in Shilaidaha of Kushtia, Shahjadpur of Sirajganj, Dakshkhindhihi and Pithabhog of Khulna and Dhaka as well.

Local administration would organize Rabindra fairs, discussions and cultural programmes.

Besides, Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy would organize a three-day art exhibition and cultural programmes while Bangla Academy with the association of Dhaka University Fine Arts Faculty would publish souvenir and posters.

Bangla Academy will also organize discussion to mark the day while all educational institutions across the country will celebrate the birthday of Kabiguru Rabindranath Tagore.

Bangladesh missions abroad would also organize various programmes to mark the day. District administrations with the association of local
lawmakers and distinguished personalities will also celebrate the day with due respect.

Dhaka University (DU) has also taken various programmes to celebrate the birth anniversary Rabindranath on the campus in a befitting manner.

Marking the day, a key note presentation programme on Rabindranath
Tagore and a cultural function will be held at DU Teacher Student Center (TSC) Auditorium at 6 pm.

Viswa-Bharati University Professor, also DU “Rabindra Chair” Dr Mahua Mukherjee will address the function as the key speaker with DU Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr AAMS Arefin Siddique in the chair. DU Music Department will perform in the cultural function.

Bangladesh Shishu Academy will stage a discussion on Rabindranath
Tagore, distribution of Shishu Academy Award for Literature 1420 and 1421 (Bengali year) and a cultural function at the academy auditorium at 4 pm.

State Minister for Women and Children Affairs Meher Afroze Chumki will join the function as the chief guest with academy Chairman Selina Hossain in the chair.

Renowned Rabindra Sangeet singer Papia Sarwar along with Shishu Academy singers will perform in the cultural event.

Bangladesh Television and other private television channels and
Bangladesh Betar would broadcast the inaugural ceremony and other programmes.

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 Boishakh 1268 (May 7, 1861) in the Jorasanko mansion in Calcutta to Debendranath Tagore and Sarada Devi.

His novels, short stories, songs, dance-dramas, and essays spoke to topics political and personal.

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 and its “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.
