STORY: The Thakurbari at Jorasanko located in the northan part of Kolkata, is the ancestral home of the Tagore Family. The Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Thakur was born and died in this house, which was built in the 18th century by his grandfather Prince Dwarkanath Thakur. The complex has several buildings. The Museum is a major repository of the works of the Tagores, especially of Abanindranath and Rabindranath. The museum offers details about the history of the Tagore family including its involvement with the Bengal Renaissance and the Brahmo Samaj. Song, dance, prayer and remembrance, all will come together on May 9 according to poet?s unique style to start a year-long celebration of 150 years of Rabindranath Takhur.
"Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake."
These great lines from his famous book ?Gitanjali?, which earned him Nobel prize.
