more-in

Rabindranath Tagore was not merely a man of letters and a poet for Sri Lanka. He was much more. He was instrumental in the cultural renaissance of Sri Lanka, speakers at a meeting organised here to commemorate his 150th birth anniversary said.

The Sri Lankan Postal Services secretary Hemasiri Fernando released a stamp and first day cover to mark the occasion.

Sri Lankan Culture Secretary Wimal Rupasinghe handed over a commemorative volume on Tagore to Colombo University Vice Chancellor Kshanika Hirimburegama.
