News from Berlin - Wednesday May 7th at eight o’clock in the evening, the Indian Embassy in Berlin organizes an evening of literature and music celebrating Indian contemporary writers as a tribute to Rabindranath Tagore’s birthday.

Born in 1861, Rabindranath Tagore was the first non-European to win the Literature Nobel Prize in 1913 for his revolutionizing of Bengali literature. In this spirit, the event organized by the Indian Embassy as part of the Sahitya Academy Literature tour 2014, celebrates the writings of Dr. N. Gopi, Dr. Chander Dutt Trikha, Dr. Angshuman Kar and Dr. Sri Satish Kumar Verma, four contemporary renowned Indian journalists, poets and scholars. Parts of their work will be read in English.

Moreover, while Rabindranath Tagore was foremost known as a poet, he was also a gifted musician who created his own unique musical form, the Ravindra Sageet, which is a combination of the diverse themes of Indian classical music and poetry. The event will therefore also be accompanied by a musical part, a Rabindra Sangeeth concert by Iman Das and Partha Mukherjee.

More information on this event can be found on the website of the Indian Embassy:
