Zee Bangla to hold Rabindra Sandhya

MUMBAI: Come May and Zee Bangla is all set to give the people of Kolkata an experience of a lifetime.

Rabindra Sandhya, which is scheduled to be held on 1 May will be the spot for musiclovers. The ever-popular Rabindra Sangeet exponents, Swagatalakhi Dasgupta and Shubroto Sen, will delight the audience with the soulful tunes.

Zee Bangla will be airing the two and a half hour event on 8 May at 7:30 PM

"This event is being held for the first time when the teachers and students of Visva Bharat University will be performing," says Zee Bangla assistant vice president Shubhojit Ganguli.

The creations of the characters of Shapmochan, Chitrangada and Chandalikada in Tagore's dance dramas remains deep rooted in the hearts of the people.

These three women protagonists strove to establish the dominance of the domain of their love. One desired to satisfy her lust for beauty through the beloved, the other wanted to win over her lover through her beauty while the third tried to attract her beloved with magic spells.

This romantic revelation will be rendered by a dance performance by the students of Visva Bharat University, considered the centre for Indian culture.

As conceived by Rabindranath Tagore, music and fine arts being the highest means of national self expression, Visva Bharati holds good to this statement. The university has reshaped itself into a full-fledged modern one with diverse interests.

The portrayal of the three characters from Tagore's famous pieces will be an interpretation made by the students from Santiniketan, who have a deeper insight into the works of the great poet.

This is the first time Kolkata will be seeing such a unique dance recital on stage.
