A university of dance, drama and music in memory of poet Rabindranath Tagore would be established in Calcutta by the Government of West Bengal. This would be the State Government’s gift to the nation on the occasion of the poet’s birth centenary in 1961. The Chief Minister, Dr. B.C. Roy, announced this in the State Assembly on March 28. The University to be named after Rabindranath Tagore would be set up in the Jorasanko house of the Tagore family, where the poet lived and died.
