Kolkata Celebrities contribute to Nepal Relief Funds
Tollywood celebrities turned up in huge numbers to support the cause “We are with you Nepal” at Camarena, E-Mall. This initiative was undertaken by Kolkata Today and Pratham photography Organization.
Some of the celebrities who turned up at the exhibition include Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee, Pandit Tarun Bhattacharya, Guru Sanchita Bhattacharya, Wasim Kapoor. Richa Sharma, Sompurna, Lopamudra Mandal Saha, Lajbonti, Suchandra Vaniya and others.
Speaking at the occasion, Sanchita Bhattacharya said “It is high time we realize the damage that we have done to Nature. Nature gives back everything. And this massive earthquake is ample proof of the fact. We must try to lend a helping hand towards the people in Nepal and also amend our ways. For we never know what Nature has in store for us. Maybe we are next in line for such destruction”.
With this initiative, a helping hand will be lent towards the people of Nepal who became victims of the massive earthquake.
Lajbonti who stays in a high rise building also spoke of her fears when her building experienced the tremors of the earthquake. “I was shocked initially. Later I understood that it was an earthquake. The first day I came down using the lift, which was a wrong decision. The next day I came down using the stairs. However I read that during such times using the stairs and the lift is not the best thing to do. Hence one can understand what can happen to people staying in high rise buildings in the city. Steps must be taken to prepare for the worst scenarios” said Lajbonti.
A cheque of rupees twenty one thousand was handed over by Mr. Tapan Chandra Das, owner of Nalin Chandra Das and Sons Sweets at the occasion for the Nepal earthquake victims.
