Jamshedpur, Dec 14: Tagore Society and Rabindra Bhawan are synonymous epicenters of all things cultural be it theatre, music, dance, recitation or Sruti Natok (play reading). In fact, the exciting and invigorating pursuits may safely be termed as rendezvous with aesthetic presentations.
The Rabindra Bhawan auditorium turned the domain of highly talented emerging hopes in the fields of music and dance between November 23 and December 4. The tumultuous ovation that greeted each performer on this hallowed stage was recognition from connoisseurs of the arts which would be one of the greatest ovations that they could receive.

459 contestants exhibited their skills in recitation, Rabindra Sangeet, tabla, Kathak, Bharatnatyam and Odissi dance forms and Hindustani classical renditions much to the aesthetic delight of the knowledgeable audience. Each artiste performing on the Rabindra Bhawan stage must have savored every moment while writing his and her name in the books of recognition. The winners of every segment were given one hour each as special moments to perform and relish the nectar of success in a sanctimonious environment.
While The Tagore Society President Dr HS Paul delivered the welcome address, General Secretary Asish Chowdhury said, “This All Jharkhand Music Competition organized by Tagore Society is aimed at providing an annual platform to society’s emerging talents so that they can, through their performances establish themselves. Our main purpose is to provide these devotees of the arts their deserved platform, their deserved positions.”
