SILCHAR, May 12: Intertiolly famed Rabindra Sangeet artist, Rabeya Akhtar will be performing at Bhasha Shaheed Smriti Mancha at Bango Bhawan on May 14, here. To commemorate Rabindrath Tagore who was born in the month of Baishak, according to the Bengali calendar, she has been called from Bangladesh to mesmerize the audiences. The programme titled, ‘Gaaner Surer Ashankhani’ will be organised by Barak Upaittoka Bango Sahitya O Sanskriti Sommelon. The programme will start from 6.30 in the evening. This was informed at a press-release organised by Barak Upattoka Bango Sahitya O Sanskriti Sommelon, Silchar on Wednesday.
Abhijit Dhar, secretary, regiol committee, Barak Upaittoka Bango Sahitya O Sanskriti Sommelon, Silchar, said, “There will be no entry fees. We have also invited other renowned singers of Rabindra Sangeet. Debashish Endow has been called from Tripura, Agartala, Kabita Roy from Karimganj and Biswajit Roy Choudhury from Silchar will be performing on that day.” Barak Upattoka Bango Sahitya O Sanskriti Sommelon wants to promote Randindra Sangeet as interest in Tagore studies, poems and songs are lessening in people’s mind. Sanjib Lakar, president, Barak Upattoka Bango Sahitya O Sanskriti Sommelon, Silchar, said, “Owing to the bad transportation system, singers from Kolkata find it difficult to come here. Though train service is there, yet fewer artists are coming. But it is easy to call singers from Bangladesh as there are ample buses and train services and the organisers also have to bear less cost for calling them from Bangladesh.”
