Santiniketan comes alive with the sound of songs, poetry and cultural performances on Rabindra Jayanti to celebrate the annual birth anniversary of the Nobel laureate, Rabindranath Tagore. A short journey from Kolkata brings the visitor to the charming environs of learning and culture founded by Bengal’s icon.
As the sun heats up in the month of Baisakh, Santiniketan pays its homage to its founding father on this day. A walk around this woody campus with its universities, art studios and open spaces for festive performances and literary gatherings is enough to bring the pulse of the occasion.
