The Association for Mentally Challenged (AMC) organised a fine drama paying its tribute to the great poet, lyricist, artist. Robi's Garden is an original script developed withing Bangalore Little Theater to celebrate Tagore's work for and with children in the year of his 150th anniversary. The play was organised to raise fund for the mentally challenged people.
The play brought into our notice the fun-loving side in Tagore alias Robi Da. Robi's Garden is a collage drawn from a wide range of Tagore's writing. These include - verse, short stories, plays, sketches (Tagore's riddle plays), fantasies, autobiographical writing and the letter to his grand daughter and other children. Tagore's scholars in India and abroad have praised the script highly.
AMC has conducted several shows and the last two shows will be held at MLR Convention, Brigade Millanior in JP Nagar on Sunday, Sep 18. The shows will be at 3:30 PM and the other one at 7:00 pm. Watch the play and face some challenge while competing with your kids to answer some interesting questions (quiz) on Tagore. The six children with their "Kabuliwala" will grab the center attraction.
The writer and the artists of the play - Robi's Garden has tried to present Tagore's time in the present scenario. Many dialogues in the play hinted at the busy lifestyles of Bangaloreans.
AMC, with Akruti, Pragati, Sanskriti and Samruddhi, is one of the oldest registered NGOs dedicating to enhancing the lives of mentally challenged. Now, AMC supports 200 children, adolescents and adults providing lifelong aid for the mentally challenged.
