Surajhankar

Surajhankar, a registered charitable trust formed in 1994, was the culmination of the efforts of a group of enthusiasts, who felt the need for a serious and organized effort to nurture the Bengali cultural heritage as well as to share a platform with the local cultural milieu in Pune.

Imparting formal ‘programmed training’ in Rabindra Sangeet, in affiliation with the renowned school of Gitabitan (Kolkata) , was the first regular activity of Surajhankar, and one that is thriving with a steady flow of students year after year. Many students of Surajhankar have successfully completed the Gitabharati degree course, and have thus established the city of Pune as an important training centre for this art. Incidently, “Gitabharati’ is one of the most popular Degree course (equivalent and recognized as B Music) in Kolkata for over 50 years. Surajhankar has produced several programs to accommodate its academic curriculum. The emphasis was to break away from the repetitive and clichéd styles and to explore alternative yet effective interpretation of Tagore’s works.

Since 2004, Surajhankar is addressing another void - teaching Bengali language to the interested locals and Bengali children, growing up away from Bengal. Since 2012, classes teaching both music and language have commenced in the Koregaon Park area. These classes are held at the Poona Blind School premises where we also have the privilege of teaching music to the visually challenged students of the institution. With an enrolment of more than 100 students in its various classes and the continuous support and patronage of the Pune citizenry, Surajhankar is looking forward to a vastly wider horizon of diverse cultural pursuits.
