(“Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark”)
Rabindranath Tagore, regarded as the Bard of Bengal will remain to be one of the rarest luminaries who made India proud as a nation.
He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 for his collection of poetry named Gitanjali. His compositions that included drama, short stories, novels, poetry, songs and work of art gave a new dimension to the freedom fighters in the struggle of independence.
During this pandemic, just when people across the nation are battling to overcome COVID-19, and people in Siliguri town are shrouded in silence due to Corona scare, Auxilium Convent School presented a beautiful online programme on 8th of May 2021 to pay a rich tribute to Tagore on his 160th birth anniversary. This ceremony was intended to boost the battered and bruised spirit of everyone due to ongoing lockdown that has put a speed breaker in people’s life and jouney.
In this scenario, the school management under the supervision of Sr. Jaya Sebastian and Sr. Sangeeta Kujur organized a virtual meeting through Microsoft Teams wherein the learners of Auxilium, especially the primary students, gifted a high decibel performance to recall the great works of Tagore and his creation.
The event witnessed some burning school talents in the field of literature. They were simply majestic in their effort to sing Rabindra sangeet, dance Rabindra Nritya, recite poems of Tagore & narrate Tagore’s quotations.
Doubt creates a mountain & faith tunnels through that to show us light on the other side. The work & literature of Tagore shall always raise our faith in God & pump in fresh oxygen to strive for better. His teachings shall remain to be our best artillery to fight all odds in our struggle.
