V-B gets new plaque with Tagore name

IndiaTimes Wednesday, 6 December 2023
Two large steel and glass frames housing Unesco's World Heritage Site certification and acknowledging Rabindranath Tagore as the founder and guiding light of the Visva-Bharati campus replaced on Wednesday the plaques controversially installed last October without any mention of the Nobel laureate, reports S Boral. The earlier plaques had sparked outrage that refused to die down despite the varsity insisting that these were temporary. " "Established in rural Bengal in 1901 by the great Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, Santiniketan was a cradle of learning and education firmly rooted in India's classical traditions...," states the new signs.

Nestled in the Raghunandan Hills just 10 km from Kailashahr, Unakoti awaits UNESCO World Heritage Site status. This hidden gem is adorned with 99 lakh sculptures of devi-devatas, tracing its roots to the pre-Vedic era. Legend holds that Lord Shiva cursed gods to become stones here, resulting in myriad stone images. Unakoti's significance deepens with connections to Lord Ram; it's believed Shri Rama performed the Ashokastami Puja here before battling Ravana. #UNESCO #Sriram #JaiShreeRam #Unakoti #TripuraTourism #Raghunandan #Tourism #Oneindianews #Oneindia ~HT.178~ED.101~GR.124~
