Dhoibat organised a inhouse rabindrasangeet evening, based on Tagore’s Monsoon songs, which often led to personification and exhibited human emotions. Today was my first public performance as a rabindrasangeet student, and I was thrilled and was apprehensive. I did not know how I would perform. The over all review was okayish, or perhaps to the better side of it. The president of the group said, that feeling was what was lacking a bit, and I shall gain it with experience and exposure.
I started learning Rabindrasangeet last year, from Dakshinee. I came in touch with few incredible people, which includes the likes of Shekhar Gupta and his family, Saikat Sengupta ( I knew him from before ) and made very good friends in them and Arindam Kanodia, Sutirtha da, and the entire group of Dhoibat. I enjoy being with them.
Another reason why this day was special, was for my mother. This was the first time, she saw me infront of so many people and from such a close distance, performing.
I felt like a child. These are things I have always wanted to do as a child, but that never happened. Perhaps, I am living my childhood days, with everything falling into place : photography, music and office.
NB : In childhood, we had school, these MNC’s are no better :/
PS : I missed Supratik, I so wish he was there. But sometime later may be :/
