This women’s day 2020 Literoma, city’s well known publishing community, felicitated 60 multi talented women from all walks of life – be it literature, fashion, social work, music, dance, cancer survivor, entrepreneurship, journalism, blogging, food industry or senior govt official, at Nazrul Tirtha. The most striking was to see other genders in the winning cadre of Nari Samman 2020. The event was conceptualized by Ms. Reetwika Banerjee, the Chief Mentor of Literoma, herself being an award winning author and short filmmaker of international repute.
The award ceremony began with the screening of Reetwika Banerjee’s award winning short film TG which carries a beautiful message for the society, to look at women and LGBTQ with a respectful eye.
When asked about her idea of such an amazing program, she said, “We dont want to celebrate the day typecasting it to a specific gender, but open our arms to celebrate it in the honour of humanity, equally honouring all genders who respect women, empower women and protect women rights in their own capacities.“
Winners who were present at the felicitation ceremony on 8th March 2020 at Nazrul Tirtha include-
The event was graced by three dignified guests namely Resmi Chatterjee, Sabarna Ray and Moushumi Sharma.
