Welcome TO Bharati Bhaban

 


 

 

 

 

 

Bharati Bhaban is a pioneer cultural organization of Asansol Burnpur Industrial area which was previously named during its humble beginning
in 1920.

From the humble beginning of Bharati Bhaban in l920 and having weathered 89 long and eventful years and with a members strength of nearly 1700 today Bharati Bhaban is not just an institution, it is a legend.From the very beginning of the organization the view of Bharati Bhaban was to feed cultural and social activities for the employees of the Indian Iron & Steel Company and Indian Standard Wogan Company. And also the local people of Asansol Burnpur Industrial area.From its beginning till date Bharati Bhaban always tried to maintain the heritage of Bengali literature, music and other spiritual activities.

It was first instituted as the Hirapur Indian Association. The object of the association was to provide recreation and social amenities to the residents of Burnpur for whom life was tedious with little or no room for relaxation. A makeshift auditorium was initially constructed then, after some land was allotted, a commodious building appeared on it in l923.

Recently on last 25th Baishakh, Bharati Bhaban inaugurated one Rabindra Smarani with one large oil painting of Gurudev, different portraits of different ages, Sketches done by Rabindranath, Photographs of heritage building of santiniketan. Probably this is the only gallery of Rabindranath in and around of this industrial township.

Bharati Bhaban is grateful to SAIL – ISP authority, Asansol Municipal Corporation and the members of Bharati Bhaban for their patronage and co-operation.
