Festival to mark Tagore's birth anniversary opened in Egypt
09 May 2016 Current Affairs: The Indian embassy in Cairo and the Maulana Azad Centre for Indian Culture are hosting a Tagore Festival here from May 8-12 to mark the 155th birth anniversary of poet laureate Rabindranath Tagore.

Visiting Egypt : Tagore, who received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913, is not unknown to Egypt.He visited Egypt as an adolescent in 1878 and later as a famous poet-philosopher in 1926 when he met King Fouad and interacted with scholars in Alexandria and Cairo.

His friendship with Egyptian poet Ahmed Shawqy is well known and he wrote a moving eulogy on his friend’s death in 1932.

Tagore was impressed by the strong literary trends and found great resonance in the intellectual movement in Egypt. He also wrote about the relationship between the Nile river and the Egyptian civilization .

Egyptian scholars have translated many of Tagore’s works into Arabic and have also written several books on Tagore. These books are available at the National Library of Egypt, which is collaborating with the Indian embassy in organising an exhibition of all such books to be inaugurated on May 9.

Rabindranath Tagore Festival in  Egypt : The Festival will feature the Tagore dance drama “Shapmochan” (Breaking the Spell) on May 9 by well-known Indian classical dancer Dona Ganguly, who hails from Kolkata. The movie “Ghare Baire” by legendary Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray will be screened on May 10. The movie is based on a novel written by Tagore. Shreya Guhathakurta, renowned Rabindra Sangeet exponent, will present songs written and composed by Tagore to the Egyptian audience on May 11. The festival will conclude on May 12 with a seminar on contemporary literature “Tagore, Shawky & Mahfouz”, which will feature Indian and Egyptian scholars and writers and will be conducted by the Supreme Council of Culture.

Rabindranath Tagore : sobriquet Gurudev,was a Bengali polymath who reshaped Bengali literature and music, as well as Indian art with Contextual Modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Author of Gitanjali and its "profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse",he became the first non-European . to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. In translation his poetry was viewed as spiritual and mercurial; however, his "elegant prose and magical poetry" remain largely unknown outside Bengal.Sometimes referred to as "the Bard of Bengal",Tagore introduced new prose and verse forms and the use of colloquial language into Bengali literature, thereby freeing it from traditional models based on classical Sanskrit. He was highly influential in introducing the best of Indian culture to the West and vice versa, and he is generally regarded as the outstanding creative artist of the modern Indian subcontinent.
