    ENJOY DELHI’S BEST HERITAGE, FOOD & CULTURAL EVENTS!

    DBF’s CULTURAL HERITAGE BAITHAK SERIES #8

    5:30PM, JULY 8TH, SATURDAY

    NOTE:
    1) Our presentation will be done in English, Hindi & Bengali (Only for singing/few poetry recitations)
    2) We have limited seats, so prior booking is necessary.

    “Akash bhora surjo tara biswa bhora pran
    Tahari majhkhane ami peyechhi mor sthan”

    The sky, adorned with sun and stars,
    The world full of so many lives,
    Within this glorious vast expanse,
    Here I am, with my song finding it’s space here!”

    These beautiful words strung into a poem ​are​ by none other than the only poet in the world​ with the unique distinction of having two of his compositions as the National Anthems of two countries (India & Bangladesh) and who influenced the tune of the Sri Lankan National Anthem as well; a man who wrote close to 3000 songs, leading a renaissance in Bengali literature whose impact was seen in the ​rest of India too; who was the first Asian to win a Noble Prize; a man widely credited to have given MK Gandhi the sobriquet ‘Mahatma’!

    Yes we are talking about the multifaceted genius,​Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, a polymath who is described “at once as a writer, music composer, teacher​, philosopher & humanitarian, nationalist, social reformer, painter, director, choreographer, actor”. His talents were manifold. Any account of his accomplishments, runs the risk of being inadvertently left incomplete.

    As a writer he didn’t leave any literary genre unexplored. His worldwide fame rests chiefly on his poetic brilliance, ​for which he received the ​Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913​. But apart from the 50+ collections of poetry, he wrote & composed music for songs, wrote drama/plays and fiction/non-fiction stories, essays, letters, travelogues and delivered sermons on a wide variety of subjects​.

    ​His work is characterised by an elemental force, that’s derived from the importance he put on humanity & empathy in society, his love for being one with nature, a philosophical take on religion and a very sharp reformist outlook towards society’s ills like caste, gender & economic inequalities.

    Yet he wasn’t just an​​ “idealistic ​philosopher,” but was ​also a pragmatist who has many firsts in his name. His idea of education was revolutionary for those years, which he implemented in his model institute ‘Viswa-Bharati ‘. His idea on methods of village reconstruction in Bengal & theory of cooperative banking was made into practice in Patisar and Shilaidaha, where the Tagore family had their estates. His concern over the oppression of environment by human is being echoed by others after eight decades. Most importantly, all his life he nurtured liberal ideas in every sphere and was not afraid of course correction as the times changed or the need arose.

    ​Join us at Delhi By Foot & Parwaz – A Poets’ Collective led by one of Delhi’s renowned Tagore aficionado & scholar of Tagore Music & Poetry, Jayati Ghosh on the evening of 8th July for a discussion & a musical evening of the literary giant’s work, being done in a manner which will make his work easily understandable for an audience which may or may not be well-versed with Tagore’s life & his work and the relevance of his thoughts and action in the world as we see it today.

    DAY, DATE & TIME: Saturday, 8th July, 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
    VENUE: Delhi Diary Art Lounge, D-20, South Ex-I
    CHARGES: Rs 600/- per person* (inclusive of chai & snacks).

      May I know the charge you taking is fid what? Since its on foot n everybody will be coming by their own means

      • March 18, 2015 at 2:22 am

        Hi Ayushi,
        Thanks for writing in with your concerns. We do not charge money for providing any travel mode to any participant.
        First let me explain what happens in a typical walk event we organise. People meet at a given point and then guided by us they embark on a short walking tour experience of 2-3 hours which covers a small specific theme/monument/cultural aspect of our city of Delhi. During this walk we share the historical facts of the monuments, then we recount interesting anecdotes about the people, both present and past and share our learnings about the cultural aspects of the city. Contsantly our team update ourselves with interesting trivia, stories and to do all this regularly, safely while maintaining a certain level of quantity is the reason why the money charged is for. I now hope it is clear to you and we will wish to see you, very soon on our walks…
        Thanks

        Hello Shivani,

        Thank you for showing interest to join our walk events on weekends, there is no membership/club kind of thing. Every weekend is a walk and as per the theme a fee is mentioned and you can follow it here on our website or on our FACEBOOK PAGE HERE: https://www.facebook.com/DelhiByFootAdventures/events/?

        Whevener you are interested in any particular walk, join in and pay us according to the fees decided.

        We have also added your MAIL ID and will start receiving the mails of our events. If not, then do check SPAM/OTHER/PROMOTIONS folders of your Gmail/Yahoo mail Inboxes.
