155th Birth Year Celebration of Swami Vivekananda at the Ramakrishna Mission, Asansol
“Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached.”
Scholars Deborshee Bhattacharjee and Ratan Bharati paid tribute to Swami Vivekananda in a joyful musical quest for the goal, at the Ramakrishna Mission, Asansol on the 155th birth anniversary of the saint.
The ITC Sangeet Research Academy and the Ashram joined hands to celebrate the occasion on January 12, 2017.
Deborshee began his solo recital with Raga Shree followed by a bhajan, while Ratan performed Raga Shyam Kalyan. Post their solo recitals, the duo performed Raga Sohini together, for the audiences at the Ramakrishna Mission. Deborshee concluded the programme with a heart warming rendition of 'Mon Chalo Nijo Niketane', which happened to be one of Swami Vivekananda's favourite compositions.
The artistes were supported with commendable accompaniment from Shri Sandip Ghosh on tabla and Shri Gourab Chatterjee on harmonium.
