Nivedita Sengupta, Susanta Ganguly and Paroma Chowdhuri
25 March @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pmFree for members
A fantastic triple bill to kick off our Sunday events: Nivedita Sengupta with a recitation of Tagore’s Streer Patra, Susanta Ganguli reciting poetry and Paroma Chowdhuri singing Rabindrasangeet, what more could you ask for!
Renowned artist Nivedita Sengupta will be reciting from Tagore’s Streer Patra ( the wife’s letter). She will play the part of Mrinal – the leading lady and protagonist of the performance – as she realises it’s more important to understand your own identity as a woman and individual, and respect yourself and build your self-esteem than being just a petty housewife. This performance will be in English with some quotes from the play in Bengali.
Susanta is a software engineer by profession, but he has always been a fan of recitation since his childhood. As a youngster he won lot of prizes in his school for his performances in different shows. He represented his collage at university level too and has played the leading role in many theatre performances in Kolkata. He learned his craft from famous Bengali reciter Niladri Shekhar Bose.
Paroma started her musical journey when she was around 6 years old with Rabindrasangeet. She later trained in Vocal Classical. She has sung for AIR & Doordarshan Silchar and won many awards for her music & performed in multiple programmes across Assam & Delhi. She holds a Visharad degree in Rabindrasangeet from Bengali Music College & a degree in Vocal Classical from Gandharva Mahavidyalay. She is currently reliving her childhood passion for music through Nupur School of Rabindrasangeet in London under the supervision of Mrs Pompa Dhar.
Please note that this year all Sunday events will take place from 1.30pm – 3.30pm
