Piu Srkar, a teacher in a college by profession and secretary of the organization said “ our organization started walking on 17th of September last year. It is an organization to serve the poor and the distressed. We have learnt that the blood bank is almost getting dried up in need of blood in recent times. So this year we took initiative to organize a blood donation camp to observe anniversary of our organization”.
There are total 90 female members in Dashabhuja.
“We must appreciate them as they have tried to do something different for the people. It is praiseworthy that they have been performing social responsibilities alongside their domestic duties. Their effort should encourage others who think of the society and people” said Tapas kumar Chakrabarty
