Remembering the master

first_imgCelebrating the 154th birth anniversary of Rabindra Nath Tagore, Kalyani Kala Mandir is organising a musical evening on May 10 at India International Centre. The show will start off with Shyam Path, songs from Bhanusingh’s Padawaali. The evening will also witness a Bharatnatyam performance by Rashmi Khanna, the founder of Kalyani Kala Mandir, along with classical singer Sumana Banerjee. Bhanusimha Thakurer Padabali is a collection of Vaishnava lyrics composed in Brajabuli by Rabindranath Tagore. Published in 1884, Tagore wrote them under the pseudo name Bhanusiha at the age of 16. The anthology consisting of 22 songs, dedicated to Kabambari Tagore, his sister in law, chronicles the romance between Radha and Krishna. Tagore seeks connection with divinity through appeal to nature and the emotional interplay of human drama. The poems primarily speak of the eternal love between Radha and Krishna, a bond that connected the two souls not in matrimony and yet brought them together for all eternity.When: May 10Where: India International Centrelast_img read more
