Though many people came onto virtual platforms to celebrate Rabindra Jayanti — the 160th birth anniversary of Tagore — the decibel seemed to be low this time.
School children did their best to cheer everyone up with their performances and by introducing time relevant topics, but many housing complexes decided to keep it to just garlanding the Tagore bust. Local clubs called off their planned song-and-dance programmes. Many Tagore enthusiasts, however, used social media to perform, which were widely appreciated.
In many schools, the online celebrations started on Saturday, several others had their programmes on Sunday, while some will have them on Monday. There was a common thread that ran through these programmes that were based on Tagore’s works, but most schools chose to deliberate upon those that spoke about difficult times and how one can rise above the crisis to help others.So students of DPS Ruby Park chose to recite Duhsamay (bad times). Children sang ‘Prano Bhoriye Trisha Horiye’, ‘Eso Shyamala Sundoro’. “These were definitely prayers from innocent hearts for better times,” said vice-principal Indrani Chattopadhyay. Children of Asian International School quoted from Tagore about how self discipline is the most important ethos to tide over current situations, said principal Vijaylakshmi Kumar. The theme of the pandemic and the Bard will again be reflected in the programme designed by La Martiniere for Boys. Though the programme at IIEST was virtual, the sta-tue of Tagore at the campus was garlanded.
