PM switches on live telecast of Gitanjali on Doordarshan

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh switched on the live telecast of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagores Gitanjali on Doordarshan national channel on the occasion of 146th birth anniversary of Gurudev, here today.

New Delhi, May 10 : Prime Minister Manmohan Singh switched on the live telecast of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore's 'Gitanjali' on Doordarshan national channel on the occasion of 146th birth anniversary of Gurudev, here today.

Speaking on the occasion, Singh said Gurudev Tagore's melodious songs inspired the freedom fighters of the country and generations of Indians.

"Both he and Mahatma Gandhi summoned extraordinary courage from the depths of ordinary people's hearts and motivated them to great acts of heroism and sacrifice," he said.

He expressed the hope that today's event would rekindle the spirit of Mahatma Gandhi and Rabindranath Tagore, by inspiring people to nurture the values that they and other leaders of our freedom struggle espoused.

"In upholding these values we may sometimes have to walk alone - ekla chalo rey, as Gurudev one sang. One must walk alone, if the path is righteous. By walking the righteous path, one creates the way for others. So one must walk, however, lonely that journey; one must walk, with one's head held high. This, in the final analysis, is the only path to fulfilment," said the Prime Minister.

Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee released a DVD of Tagore's selected songs in Hindi on the occasion, while Congress president Sonia Gandhi released 'Satyagraha', a documentation on Mahatma's Gandhi's Satyagraha, produced by the Publication Division of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.
