The 150th birth anniversary of eminent Bengali poet-lyricist Rajanikant Sen was celebrated with much fanfare at Rabindra Sadan auditorium in a musical event titled Amritabani. The event was organized in association with Idea.

Bengali Poet-Lyricist Rajanikant Sen’s Birthday Celebrated

Present at the musical evening were eminent dignitaries like Debojyoti Mishra, Sumitra Sen, Krishna Basu, Mata Satigiri and Arindam Ganguly. Before the start of the musical evening, a music album was released titled “Dhono dhanne Pushpe Bhora”. A research work on Dwijendralal Ray was also released on the occasion titled “Deshatma Dwijendralal- Ekti Jibonkotha”. The research was done by Nupurchanda Ghosh.


Speaking at the occasion, Debojyoti Mishra said “Nupurchanda Ghosh has done a great job of bringing forth the songs composed by the late poet. This is indeed a noble initiative. Or else the work of such great personalities will be lost forever from the minds of the Bengalis. I salute her endeavor whole heartedly”.

Krishna Basu who also was very supportive of the work done by Nupurchanda Ghosh said on the occasion “We have heard many stories about him from his son. We used to be just transfixed listening to his stories. Rabindranath Tagore is an icon. But we also must acknowledge the works of the other poets like Rajanikant Sen, Dwijendralal Ray and Atulpasad who despite the presence of Tagore has been able to prove their merit in the field of music”.


The musical evening began with Arindam Ganguly singing a song by the late poet. This was followed by Nupurchanda Ghosh’s spirited musical performance with her troupe.

Amritabani proved to be a huge success among the music lovers who came to listen to the melodies of the late poet Rajanikant Sen.
