While the official visitors from the Shantiniketan school, which had been founded by Rabindranath Tagore himself, went on with their own programme at the Tagore School in Marzahn, Mrs Ghosh spent most of her time in primary schools in the same district.

During one week each, she teached Indian dances, songs and poems of Tagore to students of the Peter Pan Primary School and the “Unter dem Regenbogen” Primary School. Sebastian Keller accompanied and assisted Mrs Ghosh during her entire stay.

Highlight of the visit was the final ceremony at the Tagore School on 23rd September 2011, during which trees were planted and the primary school students presented their dances and songs.
