Audio Broadcast - Poetry Prose Recitation Elocution

Audio: Chaitali Dasgupta Marks Baishe Srabon with "Amar Jabar Belate" Recitation and Songs Bengali CD Release

Kolkata, Aug 5, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Perhaps no other poet celebrated life in his works as much as Rabindranath Tagore. Yet throughout his long life the poet was constantly hounded by a series of bereavements at regular intervals. He endured the deaths of Notun Bouthan Kadambari Debi, his wife Mrinalini Devi, his daughter Madhabilata and son Soumendranath.

Amar Jabar Belaye

With his genius he transformed his personal grief into unique aesthetic creations. In a way, his life was a long tale of a brave struggle of a spiritual man trying to grapple with the problem of morality.

He has defined death by not accepting it as the final, futile end, but as an inseparable part of the cycle of life. Death has been depicted by him as the ultimate beloved, a friend.
