LIFE UNENDING


Yesterday evening there was an event organised by Prabha Khaitan Foundation with Abrittiloke and supported by the Ministry of Culture, Goverment of India. The event - LIFE UNENDING - was based on Tagore and the on-stage performers were Sharmila Tagore, Soumitra Chatterjee and Jagannath Guha. This unique event was conceived and conceptualised by Soumitra Mitra.
This event was initially planned for February 13th at Shantiniketan but was postponed and could take place only yesterday at Rabindra Sadan. It opened to a packed auditorium and I really appreciate the audience. During the two-hour program, from 6:30 pm to 8:20 pm, not a single mobile phone buzzed.
After the performance, I introduced the cast and crew on the dais (picture). I met Sankho Ghosh and Nabaneeta Dev Sen at the event.
I made a detour to The Conclave for an adda session with Rinku di and the crew of the earlier evening's event.

At The Conclave, Tony and Indrani also joined us.
I discussed with Rinku di the possibilty of taking this event to other cities as well. 
Apart from the mesmerising presence of Soumitra and Sharmila together, the other important feature of the event was the showcasing of rare pictures of Gurudev and family that were shown on a projector screen forming the backdrop.
After the conclusion of the evening program at Rabindra Sadan, I went for a private dinner to meet Kartik Chidambaram, son of P Chidambaram. He and I have many common friends. Kartik is currently in town for the Tennis Association program.
No doubt, the event LIFE UNENDING would remain etched in the memory for a long time.
