Poush Mela


POUSH MELA

Maharshi Debendranath Tagore, father of Rabindranath Tagore fell in love with Santiniketan while on a casual trip to this tribal land, and built the place that later became the centre for art and culture in Bengal. He embraced “Brahmo Dharma”, started by his father’s friend Raja Rammohon Roy. He embraced this new faith on 7th Poush (as per the Bengali calendar), which generally falls on December 23 every year. As a memorabilia of this occasion he started the Poush Mela where the young artists would meet with the local people and exchange their ideas.

What started as the celebration of a new social movement has now become a fair for exhibiting the art and handicraft skills of Bengal’s local artisans. Visitors from all over the world visit this elaborate fair to immerse themselves in the true culture of Bengal.
