Bhopal: Tagore’s Life Depicted In Stone Paintings
Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A two-day exhibition based on a series of stone paintings inspired by the biography of Rabindranath Tagore commenced on Saturday at Mayaram Surjan Bhawan.
The stone paintings were made by renowned artist Anita Dube. Dube captured the life of 8-year-old Tagore till the moment of his death in 20 pictures.
The inauguration of the exhibition was conducted by renowned filmmaker and writer Rajula Shah. Impressed by Dubey’s stone paintings, he said, “We are grateful to be acquainted with this unparalleled art. If I had not come here, I would not have known that emotions can be expressed even through stones. Such art needs to be consistently showcased to the public.”
A book release event of the Hindi translation of ‘Geetanjali’ composed by Tagore will be held on Sunday. This translation is being published by the Vagishwari Administration. During the event, Manoranjan Das will perform selected compositions from ‘Geetanjali’.
