Swayam Siddha 12 Organized in Kolkata; Eminent Women from Different Fields Honored



Rotary Club of Calcutta Metro City organized Swayam Siddha 12 at the Satyajit Ray Auditorium, ICCR. The University Women’s Association of Calcutta partnered the Rotary Club of Calcutta Metro City along with Orange Corp.

Over the past 14 years we have acknowledged the brilliance of iconic super women who are role models to the women of our society. The program was envisioned by Immediate Past District Governor Shyamashree Sen and her fellow club members in 2004 to commemorate the International Women’s Day.


The recipients this year included

Kanta Chakraborty (Social activist running a school for the homeless orphans and street children at the Dum Dum Railway Station), Sharmeela Chatterjee (Entrepreneur who rose from grass root level and now has an agency supplying manpower across continents), Nandini Chakravorty (Mining industry entrepreneur), Ekta Bhattacharjee ( creative designer and visual artist), Dr. Madhumanti Maitra  voice artist and elocutionist) and Tanusree Shankar (performing artist and choreographer).


The program was also attended by past Swayam Siddha recipients like Agnimitra Paul, Sanchita Bhattacharya, Jolly Chanda.

The musical program saw the performance of Santoor legend Tarun Bhattacharya, Percussion guru Prodyut Mukherjee and Guitarist Vikramjit Tuki Banerjee. They presented Raga Ganga on stage followed by an exciting musical conversation.
