MEGH Mallar reaches out to neglected humans

Ebangla Bureau

KOLKATA based Megh Mallar Welfare Society has launched an initiative to reach out to bridge the gulf between those living in the metropolis and semi-urban areas. Keeping the objective in view, it organized a function for the hapless orphan children in their own habitat at Palta under North Barrackpore Municipality. The camp was held for free distribution of essential medicines as part of the programs on the Children’s Day which they celebrated in a very befitting manner. After initial reservation about the strangers from the Mahanagar, the children soon realized that the volunteers had come not to harm them, they intended to benefit them and interacted freely with the benefactors. With care and empathy, the children languishing in the orphanages can be valuable citizens, says the founder of the society Ruprekha Banerjee. ’We have initiated in developing articulation of “dance” amongst such children deprived of parental affection. Raj Banerjee had wholeheartedly supported the drive. Dr Rudra Pratap Gupta, Spokesperson for the Megh Mallar Welfare Society, said ‘’we are happy to the response received from the neglected children. They have realized that there are caring people in the society. This will NOT be our last mission to serve the suppressed people. We look forward with confidence to launch similar missions’’. Incidentally, Megh Malhar is a Hindustani classical raga meaning that this raga has the power to bring out rains in the area where it is sung. The Megh Mallar society intends to bring smile on the faces of those neglected humans by rains of happiness and togetherness
