Artistes render songs on the occasion of 147th birth anniversary of world poet Rabindrath Tagore at DC Hill in Chittagong yesterday. Chief adviser Fakhruddin Ahmed has said that the works of Rabindranath Tagore are a source of inspiration to build a society full of enlightenment and free of prejudices, reports

"Rabindranath is significant in the determination and expectations of our national life," the CA said Thursday in his speech to a programme marking the 147th birth anniversary of world poet Rabindranath Tagore at Osmani Memorial Auditorium.

Fakhruddin said: "Rabindranath is the legendary pioneer of our cultural spirit. We can feel his eternal presence in our day to day life and literary arena."

"Rabindranath carved out an illuminated position in the heart of every Bangalee through his creative works in all areas of literature."

"The song Amar Sonar Bangla, Ami Tomai Bhalobashi is the expression of the deepest feelings of his heart," he said.

The CA went on: "Rabindranath is a bright star not only in Bangla literature but also in world literature. The natural views and people of Bangladesh enriched his feelings and experiences. They also played a role in nourishing his conscience and spirit."  

"The rivers, granaries, changes in the nature in different seasons—everything was the source of his inspiration."

Rabindranath was aware of the rights and dignity of the wretched people of this country. He took a number of pragmatic initiatives to change their lot including taking up various development activities, introducing a cooperative system and implementing modern and scientific appliances in agriculture.

"We are assigned to a tough task to build a beautiful and well organised society through passing numerous hurdles. We hope the philosophy of Rabindranath will help us in the journey of advancement," Fakhruddin said.

Cultural affairs adviser Rasheda K Choudhury presided over the programme. Acting cultural affairs secretary Sharful Alam delivered the welcome speech.
