This was the third year of Basanta Utsav in Rabindra Tirtha. Performances were done by Dancers' Guild on first year, by Abhog on second year and this year it was by Niharika Dance Group. The theme closely resembles Shantiniketan's model on all the three years. There were even more people this year and many commented that they were happy to be here rather than at the crowded Shantiniketan. Doordarshan Bangla covered the event in full and telecast it in full as a "delayed live event" from 9 am till 11 am.
