Shillong, Nov 30: Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik today visited the famed Rabindranath Tagore’s Art Gallery at Brookside Bungalow here and paid his tribute to Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore.

“Visiting Brookside bungalow is like visiting a temple,’ the Governor said.

An avid admirer of Tagore, he said, “Rabindranath Tagore is one with whom every Indian feels proud, coming to the place where he stayed and the things used by him is a great pleasure.”

Meghalaya Government has recently approached the Ministry of Culture for setting up of a Tagore Cultural Complex in Shillong.

Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma had met Prahlad Singh Patel, Union Minister for Culture and Tourism to discuss the establishment of the proposed Tagore Cultural Complex at Rilbong in Shillong.

Assuring to take up the matter with the Prime Minister, the Governor said, “I am in touch with the Chief Minister, we are on the same line and we will do whatever is required.”

A century ago, the Nobel laureate, Rabindranath Tagore, made his maiden visit to Shillong, the capital of undivided Assam. He spent three weeks at Brookside, a bungalow in the Rilbong locality, belonging to the then Chittagong assistant commissioner, Kiran Chandra Dey.
