Rabindrasangeet-Ami Nishi Dino Tomae By Tanjina

  • 10 years ago
Penned and composed by Tagore at the age of 28, this song was first featured in "Raja O Rani"-one of his most famous plays. During its maiden stage show, Rabindranath himself appeared as the Raja, with wife Mrinalini Devi playing the part of another significant character. In a society where women were allowed liberty of speech, of movement only behind the "purdah", Mrinalini Devi's act raised eyebrows. Thakurbari, the tagore household, however, has always been known to be a path breaker and in days to come, it would set standards for women emancipation, Tagore himself being one of its prime exponents!

Tanjina's beautiful rendition of the song makes it an absolute treat for the ears!!
