Old Nandala Bose painting of Nabani Das Khyapa Baul and Sculpture by Ram Kinkar Baij in Shantiniketan Vishva Bharati University!

approx - 1920 -1930

This is a really old painting by the famous Bengali artist 'Nadalal Bose' of Babu Kishan's Grandfather GURU - as you can see Nabani's style was 'Ektara Baya and Nupoor'! All who follow this style have followed Nabani Das Khyapa Baul because he is the creator of this style.  

Nabani Das Khyapa Baul. 


 The statue below was commissioned by Rabindranath Tagore for "Ram Kinkar Baij' another famous Bengali Artist to create this stature of Nabani Das Khyapa Baul.

approx - 1920 -1930

Nabani Das Khyapa Baul was a great friend with both artists and with Rabindranath Tagore.

Nabani Das Khyapa Baul

This lineage of Baul is a living tradition but is now extinct because it is only performance level, drama, song and dance. The essence of Baul is the living part and it does not change. Living tradition does not mean the tradition changes and it is what anybody wants it to be depending on copy and paste and following another, "fake it til you make it'. 

In Baul when they talk about Baul being a Living Tradition they are talking about the 'Essence of Baul' which is the Rasa of Baul without which it is not living anymore, it is talking about the Shakti of Baul.

Baul is very simple, Love Humanity Unity! However, because it is extinct, it must be qualified correctly,  Baul is used by many watered down and twisted that is why Baul needs to be clarified for the History of Humanity.
