Shrimati Mrinalini Devi

(1873 – 1902)

[Wife of Visva – Kabi Rabindranath Tagore, also known as Gurudev]

Mrinalini Devi was born in 1873 at Jossore (at present Bangladesh). Her father Benimadhab Ray Choudhury was a clerk in the estate of Debendra Nath Tagore, father of Rabindranath. Before marriage her name was Bhabatarini. At the time of marriage, she was almost illiterate. After marriage, she admitted in Loreto school. Her passionate nature had changed Rabindranath to a caring and beautiful husband, the name Mrinalini and the nickname Chhuti — both were given by kabi himself.

Mrinalini Devi’s contribution to the ashram — students of Shantiniketan is worth memorable.

We, the organisers, dedicate all our professional endeavour in course of organising this program, to this pious lady who had maintained a very low profile lifestyle even being the wife of Gurudev but always was behind Gurudev’s every success.

Moot Proposition for the Competition

The present government is trying hard to bring India on the Global Index in Ease of Doing Business under rank 50. The government has also changed many existing laws and has brought many reforms in the last two years. Few years back in the ranking for Contract Enforcement System, India secured 186thposition out of 189 countries. The only three countries worse than India were Bangladesh, Angola and Timor-Leste. Hence, we can say that the contract enforcement in India is in the worst condition. We all are required to focus on the contemporary methods of business contracts and exposits on the bygone advancement, judicial interpretation and future applications of the commercial contracts.
