Bengali-sweet-dish

Big Bazaar announced Poush Parbon in the august presence of Mir to celebrate the sweet tooth of Bengalis. The festival will be celebrated in Bengal, Silchar and Agartala at all the Big Bazaar Stores.

The big idea that is the highlight of this festival is to use oats from brand Kosh along with other ingredients to make the sweets healthier and yet keep the taste intact. Oats help in reducing the blood pressure and helps in controlling heart diseases. Oats when mixed with rice paste and flour can be used easily to make the Bengali delicacies.

Speaking at the occasion, Mir said “I tasted some of the Pitha-Puli made from oats. They are delicious. If no one is told that it is made from oats, it will be really difficult to spot the difference. I do not like oats myself. But the taste is so good that even I liked it”.

Poush Parbon at Big Bazaar is a good way of getting the essence of the winter season and flattering the taste buds to delicious delicacies.

Eminent Musician Bickram Ghosh Composes Anthem for TSK 25K

Musician-Bickram-Ghosh-

TSK 25K’s (promoted by Procam International Pvt Ltd) anthem has been composed by eminent music director Bickram Ghosh. The anthem captures the essence of Bengal with the spirit of change. While in its soul it has the sounds and feel that is quintessential to Kolkata culture, the slogan “run run douran’ is present in the theme that quotes “Its the race for life / Its the race for fun/ Together we say Kolkata let’s run’.

Talking about the composition, Bickram Ghosh said: “The thought that first came to my mind was what comes to mind when we think of Bengal? It is a land of melody and rhythm. So the song needed to have both in abundance. So I have used a rush of Dhak and sounds of percussion to pep up the feel of Bengal.”

The lyrics are written by Sugata Guha. The music has a touch of classical blend with electronica. The melody and the rhythm hold each other tight.

Swadhinatar Manchagaan- Theatre Songs of Independence Organized at Academy of Fine Arts

Kolkata-music-event

Swadhinatar Manchagaan- Theatre Songs of Independence was presented in Academy Theatre’s annual show this year at Academy of Fine Arts. The new production was about the Bengali theatre. The main emphasis was on its songs, and how it became an important force to hold aloft the spirit of patriotism.

With the passage of time these songs won the place in the nation’s clarion call for freedom during the British rule in India. With the Independence of India, Bengal has accumulated a vast repertoire of mancha-gaan (theatre-song) of patriotic and nationalistic fervor, which has been passed on from generation to generation through several decades. The festival was a humble attempt to explore the mancha-gaan which swam against the tide during the struggle for Independence to inspire the masses to march onward for their motherland along with the tribute towards the national heroes of India.
