Dr. Som Majumdar's Birthday


On February 8, NIRMAN commemorated the birthday of Dr. Som Majumdar, the first director. A classical sitar player himself, he wanted to build a school that would foster in children an appreciation of music and the arts. In his memory, the school invited two young musicians, Anjali Sharma (sitar) and Sandeep Kewle (tabla) for a performance. After the concert, the children asked questions about the musicians and the instruments. It was a fitting way to honour Dr. Majumdar, by celebrating his passion for music and creativity.
