FUNDRAISER FOR JANA SANSKRITI TO CENTRE
Cyclone has destroyed houses trees, crops. Villagers need shelter (temporary and then permanent), food, some people need to repair their houses, many do not know what to do with the destruction of their firm house. Here people have vegetable cultivation on a relatively high land, they have Pan Boroj (bittle leaf garden). Vegetables and bittleleafs are the two main cash crop here. Now with the paddy, the cash cropsare destroyed. So villagers are in a real bad shape. In addition water is still loged inside villages which will contaminate the water sources causing diarrhea. There is a need for bleaching power , calcium carbonate to purify roads and water. Our cultural centrecalled Muktamanchin Digambarpore is destryed. We established it in the year 1997 . Many many TO practitioners and academics from all across the globe went to Digambapore at our centre, spent lovely times there. The roof of our building adjacent to the Muktamanch flown away. Our actors next day morning tried to save our harvested crops. Satya, chitta, Renuka, Kabita, Pradip, Dipak who travelled abroad many times have lost their houses. Many villagers have witnessed their house falling from the shelter. Our digambarporecentre had also acted as a shelter place.
We have lost trees at our main centre in Badu near Kolkata. The roof over the stair cases has flown away. We have no electricity now, no internet. Nishu one of our accountant has come today to provide net from his phone. Boal auditorium needs attention too.
Now we need to reconstruct and repaired the houses, we need to provide food grains at least in the next three months to the families in our villages.Bleaching operation on road , water needs to be purified in small water bodies like ponds. ORS, Metrogyl 400, and medicines for chronic patients like diabetes, thyroid, blood pressure etc.
