“With the initiatives undertaken by the Bishwa Bandhan Foundation (India) for Cerebral Palsy, a huge number of parents will be benefitted. They will be aware of this disease and will be able to do something for their child” said ace actress Rituparna Sengupta. The actress along with Mukesh Bhatt, Jeet Gannguli was present at the event ‘Abhishek Tomar Jonyo’ held at Nazrul Manch recently.
Abhishek Mitra who died at the age of twenty seven after his long battle with Cerebral Palsy is the main motivation behind starting this organization. Gautam Mitra, Abhishek’s father started this organization to raise awareness and prevent other youngsters from falling prey to this grave disease.
Rituparna Sengupta and her dance troupe “Bhabna aaj o kal” performed dance to songs like Lal paharir deshe ja, Jhinga phuler sajete and others. Her dance troupe also enacted a special dance drama at this event.
The event also saw the inauguration of Biswa Bandhan Musical Team by Mukesh Bhatt, president of Film and Television Producers Guild of India.
With the help of this foundation, we hope that awareness will be spread and this will prevent the death of another young individual in the society.
The children of Rhythmscape, a Kolkata based dance organization and Aashiyana, a Kolkata based orphanage performed together to show their love and dedication for music and dance. Titled Nirvana 2015, the event was held at Sisir Mancha. The event was graced with the presence of Alokananda Roy, Debojyoti Mishra and Yadab Mondal, CEO and Special Secretary, Nandan.
Anusree Banerjee, Founder of Rhythmscape said “I organize Nirvana every year. This year I thought of doing something different. Since I am associated with Aashiyana I am aware of the kids’ love for dance and music. Hence I have brought the kids of my dance school along with the kids of Aashiyana for this event”.
The special guests were felicitated at the event. Speaking at the occasion, Alokanada Roy said “It takes immense courage to handle so many kids and make them perform. I congratulate Anusree for the effort. I especially liked the children who performed as rats in Ganesh Bandana. They were very cute. The fact that so many people have turned up to watch an event on Classical Dance is also commendable”.
