Tribute:Revenue Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan lighting the lamp at a function to observe the 150th birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore in Kottayam on Sunday.
KOTTAYAM: The 150th birth anniversary of poet, musician, artist and litterateur Rabindranath Tagore was commemorated at the Kottarathil Sankunny Smaraka (KSS) Kalamandiram here on Sunday.
Inaugurating the function, Revenue Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan said that the works of cultural greats like Tagore are still treasured by many across the world.
“The fact that their works are revisited time and again is testimony to their lasting legacy,” he said.
Delivering the memorial lecture, writer and Malayalam professor C. R. Omanakuttan said that transliterations of the works of greats like Tagore and Bankim Chandra Chatterjee have often failed to capture their essence. He also said that the depth in Tagore's words continued to captivate enthusiasts.
Later, art historian Vijayakumara Menon inaugurated an exhibition of 36 of Tagore's paintings at the KSS Aithihya Art Gallery.
KSS vice-president M.N.V. Panicker presided over the function. Secretary K. Madhavan Unni welcomed the gathering. V.N. Vasavan, former MLA and KSS School of Arts principal T.S. Sanker participated in the event.
