Union Club bash ends on musical note

From competitions to cultural programmes, songs to sports — the 148th foundation day celebrations of Union Club and Library, the oldest cultural organisation of the state capital, was a gala affair.

The three-day programme, which concluded on Tuesday with a classical evening, had something on offer for everyone, right from children to their parents.

“The celebrations kicked off with children’s sports on Sunday while yoga competitions were held for different age groups on Monday. We also organised musical chair for women. Tuesday was set aside for a cultural treat. Prizes were distributed on Monday evening,” said Jyotirmoy Choudhury, president of the club said.

Tuesday’s programme began with a vocal rendition by Shyama Prasad Neogi, a staff artiste of local AIR station, who has mastered the style of Bishnupur gharana.

Neogi was accompanied by Sachchidananda Majumdar on tabla, Keya Sen on harmonium and Chhanda Dutta and Sohini Neogi on tanpura.

The programme ended with a performance by violinist Tarun Chakraborty of Calcutta. He was accompanied on tabla by Sanjib Roy, also from Calcutta.
