Daakghar is a Non-Profit Organisation working relentlessly in the field of art and culture mostly in an attempt at socialisation the whole gamut of Tagore’s works amongst the younger generation. Round the year we dedicate ourselves not only to showcase these timeless literary works of Tagore before our cosmopolitan audience but also acknowledge our responsibility towards the society and environment. Our events include “Brikhyoropon Utsab”, “Basanta Utsab”, “Krishtyo Utsab” amongst others, each being a confluence of modern day experimentation and traditional nuances from Shantiniketan. Rabindranath Tagore was not immune to the charms of Spring and Dol Jatra. However, to him this festival was more of a celebration of culture and brotherhood, than mere colours. Thus Basanta Utsab was and is still celebrated as a festival of unity, and professes love, peace and brotherhood. There is no bar whatsoever and people from all walks of life and all religion and sects participate in the cultural extravaganza held at Shantiniketan. Daakghar, attempts to be the flag bearer of this legacy of Tagore and organises Basanta Utsab at the heart of the city of Kolkata each year. The celebrations are in line with the tradition practiced in Shantiniketan for years and encapsulates Tagore’s vision. The event is marked by Songs and Dances of Tagore and is concluded with a dance drama by him. The previous years of Basanta Utsab by Daakghar has witnessed performances by eminent artists from the musical scene of Bengal. We have had artists like Mohan Singh Khangura,Swagatalakshmi Dasgupta, Srabani Sen, Jayati Chakrabarti, Srikanta Acharya, Anindya Chatterjee, Madhuboni Chatterjee, Souraja Tagore, Jhuma Basak to name a few perform in the previous editions of this event. This year too,Daakghar will organise Basanta Utsab in the month of March at two different venues, at EZCC on 6th March and at Rabindra-Okakura Bhawan on 8th March.Apart from that,Jorashanko Thakur Bari has opened its doors to Daakghar for the first time ever. Daakghar will present Ananto Tabo Madhuri at Jorashanko Thakurbari on 7th March, to keep the tradition of Tagore alive and to promote peace, love and harmony amongst one and all.
