Tagore in the UK now
Promita Mallick and Dr Ananda Gupta

I do not put my faith in institutions, but in the individuals all over the world who think clearly, feel nobly and act rightly... they are the channels of moral truth — Rabindranath Tagore

Over the years, the works of Tagore have stretched far and wide in the British culture with a deep commitment to the unique traditions, heritage and values of the subcontinent. On the occasion of the 142nd birth anniversary of Tagore, British Council is hosting an interactive session on “Tagore in United Kingdom now.” Five eminent personalities, connected to the world of Tagore, would assess and evaluate the reach of his music and literature in contemporary UK. The evening would be ushered by a violin recital by the youngsters of the Calcutta Foundation. The speakers of the evening are: Sudeb Guha Thakurta, principal of Dakshinee, a well-known city-based music institution with branches in England and elsewhere, Promita Mallick, noted Rabindrasangeet exponent who has been to the UK several times to perform, Debasish Roychowdhury, former newscaster and Rabindrasangeet exponent, Dr Ananda Gupta, UK-based obstetrician and singer of Rabindrasangeet and Dr Partho Ghosh, MBE, scientist and an authority on Tagore’s works. He would also be moderating the 90-minute interactive session.
