Many treats on culture platter

Clubs in the city are spelling out Culture with a capital C .

While members of Tagore Society will pay a grand tribute to Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore through his songs at the Annual Rabindrasangeet Sammelan from Friday across the weekend, The Bengal Club is hosting its ongoing cultural festival since January 4.

The Milanee, too, hosted a Nazrulgeeti and bhajan competition on Monday, as a part of its centenary celebrations.

It will organise a Bengali modern song competition on Tuesday.

As many as 10 artistes from Calcutta, two from Bangladesh and one from Jamshedpur will be performing at the three-day music conference at Tagore Society, starting Friday.

“We have been organising this event as part of our initiative to discuss and promote Tagore’s work,” said society secretary Asis Choudhury.

There will also be a painting exhibition on three days.

The Bengal Club, on the other hand, organised a rabindrasangeet competition on Monday with more than 20 participants.

On Sunday, the Sakchi club had hosted a recitation contest where seven young-at-heart citizens aged above 50 had participated.
