Bangalore International Centre in association with Ganjam had arranged a very interesting and unique event. The event was named as “The Exercise Book” and was held at Alliance Francaise de Bangalore on Friday, 4th May, 2012 at 7:00 pm. It was designed to raise awareness for the plight of the girl child, in the country.
The event was an artistic presentation by pianist Anil Srinivasan, classical vocalist Sikkil Gurucharan and thespian Dhritiman Chaterji, and was inspired by the poetry of Rabindranath Tagore and Subramania Bharati.
The three of them together brought out the eclectism of Tagore in his poetry, music and short stories and demonstrated the unique ability of Tagore to fuse the best elements of the orient and occident to evolve a unique cultural and artistic tradition.It was a mesmerizing event where Shri Sikkil Gurucharan sang mellifluously in five different languages- Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali and Gujarati). Anil Srinivasan’s magic fingers glided along the piano keys to produce ethereal music, and Dhritiman Chaterji’s resonant recitations brought out the soul of Tagore. It was an evening to remember.
