Spend Tuesday(15th March 2011)with Bhikhari Thakur.

 

1st Bhikhari Thakur Festival to create history in the pious city of Kolkata.

 


Being a very popular language still Bhojpuri is fighting for its acceptance on government level in its own birth land with different languages & cultures. Honoured with the national language in Maurities and being spoken in over 14 countries, still it is eying towards its lover for regaining its position. Whenever any voice arises in this regard, government clearly reject it stating that the language which hasn’t  got its own literature and even lacks own script, has no right to demand its affiliation. It may be considered as bad luck of Bhojpuri language as it has already a poet of International standard in the form of Bhikhari Thakur. But instead of being enriched with the composition of multidimensional Bhikhari Thakur,no other writer dared to follow the foot step of legendary Bhikhari Thakur due to the fear of rejection and humility already borne by Bhikhari Thakur.The historic city of Kolkata has been always very famous for art & culture. Kolkata is also considered as a place where budding quality of Bhikhari Thakur prospered. At that point when he was struggling to end his meet, he was impressed and inspired by movement carried out then by famous Bengali social reformers much as Raja Ram Mohan Roy ,Ram Krishna Param Hans & Swami Viveka Nanda. After being back to his native land, enriched and enlighted with ideas on every social level which can be seen and felt in his compositions. It is good coincidence that in the reminiscence of the legend Bhikhari Thakur,worlds 1st Bhikhari Thakur festival is being celebrated on 15th March, 2011 at 6pm,venue KALA MANDIR in the pious city of Kolkatta. "This festival will be an opportunity for people to experience the joy of Bhikhari Thakur, while engaging with the radically transformative power of his poetry. It would offer a powerful encounter with the philosophy of Bhikhari Thakur, hopefully generating moments of critical self-awareness and reflection on ideas of cultural identity and social divisions, death and impermanence, and the nature of knowledge." In order to promote BHIKHARI THAKUR’s poems, languages & literary activities, WRITERS & JOURNALIST ASSOCIATION OF INDIA (waja), Kolkata based organization VISHWA BHOJPURI U-THAN KALYAN SAMAJ in association with TIMES MUSIC, MEDIA CLUB OF INDIA-DELHI, PURVANCHAL EXPRESS.COM-LUCKNOW, BHOJPURI EXPRESS.COM- AMERICA, AKHIL BHOJPURI BIKAS MANCH-DELHI, MANOJ BHAWUK.COM will jointly honor renowned Bhojpuri singer KALPANA (The Legacy of Bhikhari Thakur-Times Music-Mumbai), SANJIVE(Delhi) for his Book – Sutradhar, NAGENDER PRASAD SINGH (Patna)Editor-Bhikhari Thakur Rachanawali, HRISHIKESH SULABH(Patna) for his book Batohi, TAYAB HUSSAIN (Siwan) for his contribution on Monography on Bhikhari Thakur says festival co-ordinator Naresh Mahato.

Bhojpuri must get its own due. Jai Bhojpuri, Jai Bihar.
It's a very nice artical and more informative. This is the very good research on the bhihari thakurand bhojpuri. For this beautiful artical I would like to give you thanks a lot. It is the best homage to Bhojpuri and honourable and the shakespeare of Bhojpuri sri Bhikhari Thakur. I am waiting for your next artical on the next greatest personality of he soil of Bihar.

The move is quite encouraging. Bhikhari Thakur was a great personality. But why you have attached photograph of Swami Vivekanand in stead of Bhikhari Thakur?

People like Bhikari Thakur makes us proud for our culture!!!Thanks for highlighting this article.
