Ode to the Bard
Being fashionable is on one’s agenda for all the months in a calendar. Seasons are a fusion of colours and fashion becomes a canvas when these colours create the imagery. Truly, Rabindranath Tagore was a man of all seasons. On May 2, Palki, the fashion destination located in Bhowanipore, unveiled its fashion calendar. Palki’s fashion calendar manifests a mélange of colours, seasons and creations with a signature of Tagore’s sensibilities. This event, open to a select audience, marked the launch of this calendar emerging out of Tagore’s elocution, Sounak Chatterjee’s musical rendition and of course Prodipto Roy’s interplay of colours.
Jazz drives away the blues on any given day. The American Centre in alliance with Cafe Coffee Day celebrated the Jazz appreciation month at several CCD outlets through the city on April 29.

Reneau interacted with the audience, hosted spot quizzes and distributed prizes to the winners.
