Micro Virtual Walk: Dwarkanath Tagore (English)

Dec 25 '20 | 03:00 PM (IST)
Online Event

Event Information

Dwarkanath Tagore, the grandfather of Rabindranath Tagore, the National Poet of India, was a pioneering entrepreneur. He broke the taboos of caste, creed and religion and had the foresight to establish business ventures with European and Parsi partners in the early 1800s when such cross-community partnerships were still sneered at. By diligently building businesses from scratch and investing judiciously he soon became one of the richest persons in all of Bengal, if not India and was referred to by his peers as Prince Dwarkanath. He was also a staunch advocate of science education and was exemplary in the massive donations he made for the promotions of the causes he supported.


On this Micro Virtual Walk, we will trace the footsteps of Dwarakanath Tagore through the places and stories associated with him in Kolkata backed by in-depth research and immersive storytelling and visuals.



This walk will be conducted in English.


The walk will be conducted via Zoom. Participation link will be shared with all those who have registered 12 hours before the tour via email. Please check your Spam folder in case you have not received the link or get in touch with us at contact@immersivetrails.com for any queries.
