Like the past few years, Bengal Oncology Foundation this year too arranged their annual unique awareness program on Cancer with survivors meet at Birla Sabhaghar.
This unique program has consisted of a panel discussion on the topic ‘Can Healthy people Be Affected By Cancer?’ The aim of the discussion was to increase the level of cancer awareness in Bengal. It is well established that more than half of the cancers are diagnosed at the late stages and the survival is poor. Cancer is usually asymptomatic at the early stages. Thus screenings of normal healthy individuals are necessary to detect cancer at the curable stage.
The audience consisted of about 500 cancer survivors and their families. The panelists included Dr. Pradip Mitra, Dr. Subir Ganguly, Agnimitra Paul, Satyajit Chatterjee, Secretary Mohon Bagan Athletic Club and Rukmini Maitra, Actress and model. The discussion was moderated by Badsha Maitra and DR. Gautam Mukhopadhyay. The discussion was less on technical aspects and emphasized more on social awareness.
The program concluded with a dance drama ‘Dhrubajyoti Tumi Jishu’ by Alokananda Ray and troupe which symbolized peace and re- incarnation of Jesus Christ.

On July 7th the logo of Namita Productions was launched by Tollywood actress Nusrat Jahan and Hobl’e Minister for Sports and Transport, Govt of West Bengal Shri. Madan Mitra in Floatel Kolkata.
The movie “Ami Aj Nostho Hoye Jai” which is being directed by Srikanta Gului is set to be launched under the banner of Namita Productions and has given the stage to new comers like Amit Debnath, Piyali Paul, Swaraj Bose and many others. All the actors who have been selected for this movie had to pass strict auditions and this no bias attitude of the production house makes it evident that they aim to promote new talents and give the industry fresh faces to lead on.
The CEO of Namita Productions Utpal Samanta said that while he indeed aims to make money out of the venture, he also wants to help the poor and needy and would be donating huge sums to charitable institutions in order to facilitate the treatment of poor and needy cancer patients. In keeping with his aim, he also handed over a cheque to Shri. Madan Mitra.
The beautiful Tollywood actress Nusrat Jahan, who looked stunning as ever in black pants and a black sleeveless top also congratulated the new actors and wished them luck for their future. She was also highly impressed by the producer’s noble initiative of helping the cancer patients and wished him success for his future endeavors.
Ami Aj Nostho Hoye Jai is expected to release in September and the producer is quite hopeful of its success. Mr. Samanta has also expressed his desire to make more and more Bengali films and give a platform to new unexplored talents.
We too hope that this noble initiative of Namita Productions is appreciated and received well by the cine goers of Kolkata and other areas of Bengal.
