Our language, culture, art, literature, fine arts all are getting adulterated with foreign values over time and their basic colours are fading out or taking on a different dimension. In the 21st century, it has become imperative to protect one's self-esteem from the impurities of this unwanted veneering or mixture from external culture. Rabindranath Tagore, one of the foremost sources of our though process, is the source of our creation, which we reveal every day in a new form. In so many ways he made us rich in poetry-novel-story-drama and finally with his melodious tunes and paintings. To recreate an untainted ambiance, who else could be the source of treasures except Rabindranath Tagore; the treasure from which it is possible to bring back the original colour. In late 2018 an innovative initiative has been taken to create the Robi Prangaan ‘Tagore Terrace’ where he remains visibly and invisibly everywhere; in books, songs, poems and pictures, there are tea and coffee as tangible retreat. So what’s the harm in spending some leisure time relaxing in the colours of the aura of Tagore?
