“The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence” – Rabindranath Tagore

This is exactly what is depicted in the pandal of Chalta Bagan this year. Chalta Bagan is one of the most sought after pandal, churning out the most innovative pandals year after year. This year the theme being Bengal’s vey own Rabindranath Tagore. The pandal has been enticed with alphabets and depicting Tagore’s unmatchable literary skills. His book “Geetanjali’, been made to come alive. The depiction of words coming out of the book is breath taking. It also illustrates beautifully his keenness for music and dance. Statues, that look mirror image to life, shows his music being enjoyed and women dancing to Rabindra-Sangeet. It has also been graced with a marvelous statue of Rabindranath himself. The deity is stationed under books thus also giving a message to encourage education. Overall an enthralling experience and a must visit for the pandal hoppers this year!!
