To pay homage to two famous Bengali luminaries – Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore and revolutionary poet Kazi Nazrul Islam, the Bengali wing of Indian Social Club in Muscat hosted a cultural evening.
Entitled Rabindra Nazrul Bichitra, the programme hosted by Bangiya Parishad encompassed glimpses of the creative genius of the two personalities, through artistic presentations, including vocal renditions, solo and group dances as well as recitations.
Short skit and play reading (sruti natak) were added as part of the variety entertainment, the 'Times of Oman' said.
A group dance recital by young girls to the scintillating rhythm of Nazrulgeeti, kicked off the event. This was followed by other dance performances, an Odissi style presentation to the tunes of Rabindrasangeet and a unique combination of recitation, song and dance.
Several singers from the members of the wing dished out popular songs from the treasure trove of the two poets and composers.
Two short play reading (sruti natak) dramas were also enacted on the occasion – one on the third generation perception of Tagore and another Jibon Brittanto, dwelling on the 'chronicle of life'.
