A tribute to Tagore
On his 150th birth Anniversary, the visionary, poet and the Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore was commemorated by the people of Bangladesh. This is a great opportunity to strengthen the ties between the two countries, Bangladesh and India

ON WEDNESDAY, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the inspirational Rabindranath Tagore, to commemorate him, an exhibition of paintings was inaugurated in the capital by Jawhar Sircar, Secretary, Ministry of Culture, Government of India in the presence of Mahbub Hassan Saleh, Deputy High Commissioner, Bangladesh High Commissioner.
 
The exposition, which is on display in the Lalit Kala Akademi, India’s National academy of arts till May 23 2011, has been by created by artists-in-residence, an eight-member delegation of artists from Bangladesh.
 
The exhibition, which was named “Bangla-Tuli”, put on display 17 portraits of the master himself, which was painted to pay homage to the late poet, novelist and painter who was also the first non-european to receive the world’s highest honour award, the Nobel Prize. All the murals were figurative paintings which tried to depict Tagore on the canvas, aesthetically.

 
The Lalit Kala Akademi is planning to publish a portfolio for this emotive art work as these murals are now the assets of the academy itself.
 
This painting exposition is an epitome of the immense cultural exchange, which is taking place between the two neighbour countries, India and Bangladesh and will facilitate the ties between the two countries whose national anthems are contributions by the same poet, Rabindranath Tagore.
 
“This is an incredible endeavour to strengthen ties between the two neighbours and establish good relations between the two. This painting exhibition has provided us with great opportunity to showcase our artistic skills. I hope Indian artists will, also, visit Bangladesh to showcase their ethos,” Sheikh Afzal Hussain, one of the artists said, ecstatically.
 
On being asked how they liked New Delhi, he said, “We went for shopping in Delhi and shopped Indian sarees to take back with us home as souvenirs”.
