Press Release

Kaalmrigaya”

Indira Gandhi Cultural Centre, High Commission of India, Dhaka is organizing a musical dance drama "KaalMrigaya" (originally written by Kabiguru Rabindranath Tagore) by famous group from India led by Ms. Mahua Mukherjee and Subhadip Chakrabortyon 24th March, 2019 at the Main Auditorium, Bangladesh National Museum, Shahbag, Dhaka from 06.30 PM onwards.

The story of Kaalmrigaya revolves around the death of a blind saint’s son, killed by Dasharath. The son even after being intimidated by natural calamities near Sarayu River does not deter from his vow of providing water to his thirsty father. During his hunting, King Dasharath upon following a deer cub shoots an arrow through the bushes near the river that ends up critically wounding the boy. Before taking the last breath the boy requests Dashrath to take his body to his father and Dashrath abides. Initially the blind saint being in pain and anger curses Dashrath of experiencing the same loss of son but then forgives him. An unique side of Rabindranath is evoked in this opera. The sense of death and forgiveness is depicted in his post- adolescent phase. To think more deeply, the magnanimity of forgiveness can truly be felt in death.

All are cordially invited. Entry is open to all and strictly on first come first serve basis.Dhaka
