Basanta Utsab at Shantiniketan-2010

02 Mar

This may not be the first time in the recent past that peace at Rabindranath Tagore’s Santiniketan has been shattered but none could  imagine that violence would take a toll on Basanta Utsav at Gurudev’s Shantiniketan on Sunday. The tradition of celebrating Basanta Utsav at Santiniketan was started by Nobel laureate Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore himself and it is the occasion when  thousands including foreigners,  gather in the campus to witness and participate in the colourful Basanta Utsab on the day of Holi, But this time the tradition was broken when the management had to curtailed the functions by canceling the evening dance drama due to clash between two groups of students. The responsible students of this shameful act should be identified and  be expelled from the prestigious institution without any hesitation.

What happened on Sunday, is shame to Bengal, shame to Bengali, shame to  all of us who love Tagore.
