“Coping with performance pressure in adolescence”
The three-day Intensive Tabla Workshop organised by Satikanta Guha Foundation and MATRA (The Music Academy for Tabla Research by Pt. Anindo Chatterjee) ended in grand style at Garden High School on Monday, 24 July 2017.
The Workshop was inaugurated by Pt Anindo Chatterjee on the morning of 22 July 2017. On behalf of the Satikanta Guha Foundation, Sm Ratna Bose delivered the welcome speech and Sri Anubrata Chatterjee and Sri Haridas Alankode also addressed the audience. Dr Anuradha Das, Academic Advisor of Satikanta Guha Foundation, compered the programme.
About 40 selected students from different states of India (Kerala, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Delhi, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Orissa), Bangladesh and USA participated in the workshop. Pt Anindo Chatterjee and Sri Anubrata Chatterjee personally trained the students on all the three days showing them the nuances of Tabla playing, how to play solo, how to play as an accompanying artist, etc. It was a rich and enduring experience for the students.

We appeal to everyone to become a sponsor of at least one meal to the economically disadvantaged pupils of Gayaram Sishu Siksha Niketan, located close to Garden High School. The meal may be offered to mark a special occasion, like a birthday, or in remembrance of a beloved or venerated person. The sponsor and the members of his/her family would be most welcome to be present on the day this meal is served to the children. Their presence would assure the children that there are people who do care for them.
