India and Bangladesh jointly celebrated Rabindra-Nazrul at Embassies of India and Bangladesh in Beijing yesterday.

The birth anniversary of Gurudev Rabindra Nath Tagore and Bangladesh’s national poet Kazi Nazrul Islam was celebrated with a delightful cultural medley at Swami Vivekanand Cultural Centre (SVCC) of the Indian Embassy in Beijing. Indian Ambassador, Pradeep Rawat addressed the gathering and gave insights on how both the nations shared so much in common and how a celebration of the two men of letters, in many ways embodied the multi-cultural and pluralistic kaleidoscope that is the Indian subcontinent.

Bangladesh’s Ambassador, Mahbub Uz Zaman said that both the nations are bonded together through the events that shaped the glorious Bangladesh war of independence in 1971. He recalled that Bangladesh’s national Anthem was composed by Rabindra Nath Tagore. He also recalled the great relationship between Kavivar Rabindra Nath Tagore and Bangladesh’s National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam which he said was blended with respect and love.

The cultural events ranged from poetry recitation and song and dance programmes set to Rabindra sangeet and Nazrul geeti to playing of short films on the respective cultural legends. A special recording made especially for this event by renowned singers Rezwana Chowdhury Bannya and Sujit Mustafa was also played at today’s programme
