Aatman Audio Initiates Anti Drugs Campaigns in the City


Cigarette smoking and tobacco consumption is injurious for health- says many a ad film, documentary and docu-feature films but the question remains- has this caused any change in the mindset of the common people who still continue with the consumption of such things. In a bid to raise awareness among the people against drugs, music company Aatman Audio organized an Anti Drug campaign along with the Narcotic Cell, Detective Department, Kolkata Police. The event was organized to mark the occasion of International Anti-Drug Day.


The three day event was organized by Aatman Audio at three important locations in the city namely South City Mall, Highland Park Mall and Mani Square Mall. Somnath Ghoshal owner of Aatman Audio said “We selected these places so that we could connect with the live audience and reach out to more people. The malls are places where people and usually youngsters come regularly. The youngsters are also are easily influenced and resort to drugs. Keeping all these issues in mind, we decided to organize this event at the malls. Moreover the 4 to 7 is also a good time to stage these shows as many people visit the malls during this time”.

Celebrities and many eminent personalities also came to show their solidarity with the cause. Some of the noteworthy names present include Silajit Mazumdar, Ananya Bhattacharya (Khnada), Timir Biswas, Emon Chatterjee, Ena Saha, Pota, Jojo Mukherjee, A.C.P Deepak Kr. Dutta, Amit Chatterjee (Narcotics Dept., Kolkata Police).


The three day event saw short plays being performed by Urotaar, one of the leading theatre groups in the city. Their play was based on anti-drugs awareness. Rhythm Speaks, dance group performed creative dance for the assembled audience on anti-drugs issue. Singers like Biswajit, Titash, Sandip, Oiswarja, Rashmita lent their voices to traditional Bengali songs along with acoustic music by artists.

Aatman Audio’s effort at arousing awareness among the people in the city regarding the evil effects of drugs deserves a pat on the back. We look forward for more such noble initiatives in the future from the music company.

Kolkata Fitness Center Soumen’s Workout Organizes Awareness Campaign on World No Tobacco Day


Soumen’s Workout is a state of the art slimming center offering fat reduction services through physical workout for over fifteen years. Soumen’s Workout observed an awareness initiative on “World No Tobacco day” to highlight the risk factors associated with the use of tobacco among individuals. 102 year old former Mr. Universe Manohar Aich along with Grandmaster Dibyendu Barua and Soumen Das, owner of Soumen’s Workout was present at the occasion to flag off the walk and also support the cause.


“The ultimate goal of this walk is to ensure a tobacco free society. The devastating health consequences of tobacco are known to many people but even then they use this product. This is even more dangerous among the youths who have a rising tendency to use such products. I know we will not be able to change the society in a single day but we can make a beginning in the curbing of such bad habits among the people” said Soumen Das. Every Sunday a fitness camp has also been initiated by Soumen’s workout at all its outlets whereby free counseling on the nutritional aspects and workout will be shared to achieve the desired results.


Dibyendu Barua was also present during the awareness event held the previous year by Soumen’s Workout and attending the program this year said “This is indeed a great initiative by Soumen’s Workout and this is my second visit to the event. This is a long process and has to be religiously done by the people involved in this. This will take time and only then some portions of the society will leave this habit. The only way to stop this habit from spreading more among the people and mainly among the young generation is only with the help of awareness programs”.

The event was followed by a walk with the active participation of students from various schools and colleges from Esplanade to Dumdum Airport.
