Behind the Beard

Here’s a short extract to complement some of the points Matthew Pritchard makes in his discussion of Tagore’s reception in the West. It’s from a book edited by S. Radhakrishnan and first published in 1961 by the Sahitya Akademi in Delhi to mark the centenary of Tagore’s birth. This piece is by Philippe Stern.

One comment to “Behind the Beard”
  1. Dear all,
    It is our great pleasure to introduce ourselves as SRIJAK, an original dance academy where social consciousness has seamlessly blended with physical expression of harmonious creativity. Our performances have a deep social bearing to go with the rich cultural value of INDIAN ART FORM.

    With due humanity, we also would like to point out that all our past performances have invariably received very rare reviews in the print and electronic media as well as within august cultural aficionados.

    We now humbly submit our request for granting us a suitable opportunity to associate with you.

    Here we attached a demo video of our new Dance Drama – “Rabindranth Tagore’s “PRITHIBI” (The Mother Earth) to promote a social awareness. Please find the attachments.

    Looking forward for your kind patronage.

    Thanking you,

    Goutam Upadhyay & Rupa Upadhyay
    (Directors, SRIJAK)
