Video: Sushila Birla Girls’ School Organized Celebrating Bengal
Bengal is not only about the food but it also has a rich cultural heritage too. This heritage gets reflected in the traditional art forms, dances and folk songs. An eminent school of the city, Sushila Birla Girls’ School organized the annual art festival titled Celebrating Bengal at the school premises.
Nilanjana Chakraborty, Barun Chanda, Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee and many other eminent personalities graced the occasion.
The students of the school performed a Chhau dance. This is a dance form of Purulia. The song was based on Tagore’s Nritya Natya Nataraj Riturangasala. The students attended a seven day workshop on Chhau and then performed this act.
With the help of this initiative, the young minds at the school will be able to understand the heritage that they have been passed on to. They will be able to appreciate the art forms and do their bit to save them. With this appreciation and learning of the dying arts of Bengal, this also marks the entry of the school to Kolkata Art festival organized by Indian Chamber of Commerce.
Nachni dance was also showcased by a professional at the event. Chhau was also performed by Madhumita Pal and troupe at the event. They performed Mahisashur Mardini and Nataraj for the audience.
The performances kept the audiences engaged and also enthralled them no doubt!!
