"Tagore's Kitchen" | Tagore Utsav | Humanism
I am a young Muslim boy studying in Jamia Millia Islamia in 11th class. I have been learning the art of storytelling through video film making and visual arts for last two years. Guru Rabindranath Tagore, a nobel laureate from India has been very close to my heart. I enjoy reading his poems in my Art & Cultural group FLYING BIRDS OF INDIA. Last year we the members of this group did a community kitchen to cook and share the Hindu Bengali food which Tagore used to enjoy with his Bengali relatives and friends. We not only cooked the food in Bengali style but also served it in terracotta pots and also on banana leaves to our Muslim friends and neighbors. Community people offered us their kitchen and contributed for this Tagore Commemoration Lunch. Our teacher recited his poems during the lunch. My friends and I shot a small film of this celebration. I have already screened this inspiring film during our UDAAN COMMUNITY FILM FEST in many schools, colleges and communities.
