ACT remembers Indias first Nobel Laureate on his 161st Birth Anniversary
11th May 2022
Asian College of Teachers (ACT) celebrated Rabindra Jayanti at Kolkata centre remembering the nobel laureate, Rabindranath Tagore on his 161st birth anniversary. The celebration was held on 9th May, 2022, to pay tribute to the bard of Bengal for his unparalleled contribution to the world of arts, literature and music. His creations have impacted the lives of millions in various ways, across India and abroad.
Rabindra Jayanti is seen as a cultural event, celebrated annually, and commemorates the birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore. While the English calendar marks his date of birth on 7th May, the bard’s birthday is celebrated every ‘Pochishe Boishakh’, the 25th day of the first Bengali month of Boishakh, the day that a true-blue Bengali remembers by heart. ACT remembered Kobiguru on his birth anniversary with beautiful song and dance performances. The celebration began with our national anthem which is the bard’s gift to the nation and to every Indian living across the globe.
The celebration took place at ACT’s Kolkata office where ACT members actively performed along with the students from the ongoing in-class International Teaching Diploma batch. The celebration held the audience’s attention throughout as the students matched their notes to Rabindra Sangeet, reciting Tagore’s noteworthy creations, and performing Rabindra Nritya. The performances were immensely enjoyed by all and the celebration ended on a delicious note with some scrumptious evening snacks.
