During the event, volunteers of MSSI, Kolkata distributed hundreds of bilingual brochures to all the audiences and the crowd present in Mani Square mall. The mall was anyway beautifully decorated with posters and banners of MSSI at several strategic locations.
Renowned national award winning singer Rupankar was invited to the stage. He came and sang some of his all popular and hit songs through which the audience was amazed. His songs also created lot of attraction in common visitors in the mall. The most attractive part of this session was a song composed by Rupankar especially on the theme of MS and MSP – “Sanket aasche na, sanket chai pete” which drew great energy within the audience. Human chain also was created by the MSPs and volunteers during the song. Throughout his performance, he spoke at length on MS, MS friends and the noble work being performed by MSSI, Kolkata.
