Activities in Previous Years:-


It is an institution dedicated to spread the message of unity and integrity. This is totally a non-commercial Institution. We do social works. Every year we used to organise Blood Donation Camp. SNB extended their helping hand in favour of the family of the Tabla artist Sukanta Chakraborty of Sabroom of Tripura. Rs. 10,000/- was handed over to the next kith and kin through the President and Secretary of Surnandan Bharati Tripura. The Posthumas Talnandan Award was handed over to the wife of the departed artist. The Silver Jubilee Celebration of Surnandan Bharati was organized from 12th to 16th December 2018.The first day was the exhibition of the Artists from Nagaon of Assam and Shillong of Meghalaya and West Bengal. The exhibition was inaugurated by Eminent Artist and the Chairman of Asiatic Society of Kolkata Isha Mohammad. The second day was organized at Birla Academy of Art & Culture of Kolkata. The Award Ceremony and some Culrtural programmes were organised there. The Eminent personalities from Assam, Tripura and West Bengal enlightened the programme.

The third day programme was held at Gyan Manch of Kolkata. The Lifetime Achievement Awards were given to Sri Debanjan Mukherjee (Educationist & Elocutionist, SIlchar, Assam), Sri Eswaramoorthy H. Iyer (Carnatic Musician of Vadodara, Gujarat), Sri Gautam Dey (Musician of Arunachal Pradesh), Md. Julfikar Hussain (Tabla Maestro of Assam), Pt.

All the awards were handed over to the artists by Pt. Birju Maharaj (the legendary Kathak Maestro of India).


We are serving the downtrodden students to elevate them to be successful in their life. Our receipts are basically from the donations and minimum charges for conducting examinations from the students. Our institution is accredited by ISO 9001: 2015. It is further informed that all donations received by Surnandan Bharati will be eligible for exemption u/s 80G of the Income Tax Act, 1961 with immediate effect. The exemption is valid from assessment year 2019-20. Our institution holds Annual General Meeting usually in the month of May/June and also holds All India Conference in the month of December. Eminent personalities in the field of Music, Dance, Recitation and Painting attend the function. It has been realised by the Managing Committee of Surnandan Bharati that each man and each family should be a part of this University. We, who teach, must be willing to accept our students as members of our own family the same way that Ustad Allauddin Khan did. Keeping this in mind we intend to start Cultural Academy with such a research programme in Kolkata, Silchar (Assam), Shillong (Meghalaya), Agartala (Tripura), Bhilai (Chhattisgarh), Deoghar (Jharkhand), Udaipur (Rajasthan) and Ponda (Goa) which would include not only exchange of culture but also encourage the budding artists. Indeed a country’s wealth and talent lie in its hinterlands. Extending our activities to remote areas and providing proper guidance and training to the budding talents hidden there, is one of our main objectives of setting an Institute. We have organized workshops on cultural aspects in different states of India.
