Brainware University brings a message of hope
Art brings light and joy when there’s none to be found. In times as tough as these when the pandemic once again has its stranglehold on us, the members of Brainware family thought it fit to fight hopelessness with a ray of hope that keeps burning bright in our hearts. Through the cultural programme Loho Pronam: Brainware University celebrates Tagore’s 160th Birth Anniversary, which was organised on May 17, 2021, we tried to commemorate the life of this visionary and to find strength in his timeless words. The faculty members came together to dedicate their performances to Tagore and pledge that united we shall emerge victorious against the greatest hardships.
The programme began with a moving speech by Professor Sankar Gangopadhyay, Vice Chancellor, Brainware University, who admitted that even though words cannot suffice what Tagore means to us one must keep trying.
The cultural performances which followed thereafter highlighted the message in Tagore’s art which shows that like the eternal cycles of nature where summer follows winter, great joy also follows periods of great pain. One must never give up hope. Dr Kabita Chakraborty and Mr Arnab Basu recited poems written by Tagore while Ms. Satavisha Haldar, Ms. Bandana Basu, Ms.Dyuti Gayen, Mr. Boudhayan Bhattacharya and Ms. Monamie Mukherjee gave wonderful performances of Rabindra sangeet. Mr Madab Bandhopadhayay also played soulful tunes using a Mouth Organ. The programme ended with a message of goodwill and a prayer that health and peace is restored in our country soon.
