In our third session Sushobhan Adhikary will talk about “The Abodes of a Poet: Reflection of Art and Nature”. A house, a place where humans live in- does only provide safety and security, especially, when it is the house of a poet and artist who is known internationally? The house whose corners are filled with specimens of art, which have an intrinsic bonding with nature. It is in the houses of Rabindranath Tagore in Santiniketan where we see a wonderful meld of art and nature.
