Watch the first Online Sahityasabha on YouTube here [Link updated after the live event]

Every Tuesday evening in Santiniketan, the home town of Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, he established the tradition known as Sahityasabha (“literary gathering”) for children studying at Patha Bhavan. It is a performance at which schoolchildren are invited to perform their own creations, including works by Tagore, based on recommendations from their teachers. This is how they learn to become stage-free.

Kaberi and I are preparing an hour-long, live programme next Saturday (27 June). It will bring together mainly former Patha Bhavan students, including Kaberi, who will be performing from their homes in different countries. For those in India, it will start at 18:30 while, for those in the UK, it will start at 14:00 – see the image for the start time in different time zones.

You should be able to watch the performance live from anywhere in the world via YouTube Live, which is embedded at the top of this post. You should also be able to catch up with the recording later here. Note that the performances will be in Bengali, with some explanations being provided in English.
