For years the Borshamongal event has been happening in Santiniketan as an ode to the monsoons. Tagore, who was instrumental in celebrating seasons, was fond of the rains and the latter has found a place in different forms in his literary arts. The event, Srabonstuti, is a confluence of arts and artistes of Santiniketan and Kolkata coming together to invoke rains through soulful melodies, dramatised narratives and mind-blowing choreography that’s all set to take place on August 4, at ICCR. The production shall see artistes like Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee, Vivek Datta, Ranjini Mukhopadhyay, Tapabrata Chatterjee, Debadrito Chattopadhyay, Sree Basu, Rukma Dakshy, Mahua Ghosh and many others in performance. “This event is a soulful binding of Ashramiks of Santiniketan and aficionados of Kolkata,” said Paromita Ghosh, who has penned the script of the show. Ranjini Mukhopadhyay, niece of the legendary Tagore vocalist Kanika Bandopadhyay, said, “As a teenager, we have beautiful memories of pishimoni organising and presenting this in Santiniketan and singing for this programme is sheer nostalgia for me.” Culinary expert and vocalist Rukma Dakshy, who is also a part of the show, said, “Kolkata shall get to experience a share of Santiniketan and I will be singing Megher Pore Megh Jomechhe at the event.” Sujoy, who will be doing the narration for the show, is also happy to be associated with this unique event. He said, “I am very happy performing for this programme because monsoon is my favourite season. I am even singing a song which I used to sing as a part of a chorus many years back.”
