Objective of Nandan Mela
The intention of Nandan Mela was to focus on the arts and artistry of Bengal. Some of the art-centric functions like Poush Mela and Anandamela are also held in Shantiniketan. Nandan Mela achieved the goal of building up a sizeable student’s welfare fund within a few years. In the short span of time, of around a month, given for the preparation of objects for the fair, the teachers and the students learnt to work intensely, at a quick pace, in groups, with wish to show off their innovativeness. Kala Bhavan unwittingly, thus began to offer opportunities of frenzied work in festive atmosphere which very few educational institutions could think of. Previously Nandan Mela was the land of K.G. Subramanyan and Somnath Hore, Jogen Chowdhury and Sarbari Roy Choudhury, Sanat Kar and Suranjan Basu.
