Sravasti, in 1992, grew out of Chaitali Dasgupta's desire to create an awareness about Bengali poetry through everyday garments such as sarees, kurtas and t-shirts portraying eternal verses of Rabindranath, Jibanananda, Sukumar Ray, Subhas Mukhopadhyay, Nirendranath Chakraborty, Shakti Chattopadhyay, Sankho Ghosh, Rafique Azad, Joy Goswami, Tasleema Nasreen and many more, with fabric paint.
Since then, Sravasti has been catering to a niche and dedicated clientele the world over with its exclusive designed garments. These include t-shirts, photuas, short kurtas, kurtas, salwar-kurtas, wrap-around sets, saradins, nakshikantha, batik, applique, fabric painted, block-printed cotton and silk sarees, blouse pieces, costume jewellery and a variety of bags.
Sravasti holds pre-Poila Baishakh and pre-Puja sale-cum-exhibitions on a regular basis at its own address.

Rabindranath was truly a myriad-minded man. His songs reflect many hues of his personality and his perspective of life. The countless songs that he had composed are laced with very interesting anecdotes and stories. This audio project is a collage of stories that lay behind the musical creations of the great master.
Presented by Sravasti, this CD is truly a collector's possession and demystifies the "stereotyped" and often misleading notions and myths about Rabindrasangeet, laying bare the actual tales behind the songs.
GAANER GOPPO is the second project of SRAVASTI, an institution which creates cultural excellence and preserves heritage.
