:: Abritti - Recitation ::
English and Bengali Recitation: The spoken presentation of a written piece of poetry is known as Abritti. It is been used in oratory for practice in Indian & Bengali literature and culture.
It will be very difficult to find a Bengali who has not tried his/her voice in recitation of Bengali poems in childhood. Many left it due to pressure of works in the profession while very few still manage to practice it in the latter stage of life. Whatever may be the case, the fondness of Bengali people for recitation is unique and you will not find any community in the world who shows so much love and emotions for elocution of poems. This is mainly due to the utter love of Bengali community towards literature. They give very high regards to poet, writer and novelist.
Here are some selected reciters from India and Bangladesh with most prominent poems of the past and present.

The grasses are light brown and the ocean comes in long shimmering lines under the fleet from last night which dozes now in the early morning
Here and there horses graze on somebody’s acreage
Strangely, it was not my desire that bade me speak in church to be released but memory of the way it used to be in careless and exotic play when characters were promises then recognitions.
The world of transformation is real and not real but trusting.
Enough of these lessons? I mean didactic phrases to take you in and out of love’s mysterious bonds?
Well I myself am not myself and which power of survival I speak for is not made of houses. It is inner luxury, of golden figures that breathe like mountains do and whose skin is made dusky by stars.
