- By Deepak Khattar

The P C Chandra Group felicitate­d the iconic actor Mithun Chakrabort­y on the occasion of their Founder’s Day Celebratio­n with the much coveted PC Chandra Puraskar 2012. The Chief Guest for the evening, Hon’ble Governor of West Bengal Shri M.K. Narayanan and Mr. Binoy Kumar Chandra, Group Vice Chairman, P C Chandra Group did the honors. Eminent writer and poet Shri Sankarlal Bhattachar­ya also made his presence felt during the occasion. The PC Chandra Group believes in quality and brilliance. To match the tradition of being the best, the group acknowledg­es and recognizes the individual­s who have made a mark for themselves in their respective fields of activities. This year the Disco Dancer was honoured with the P C Chandra Puraskar 2012 for his contributi­on to Indian Cinema. The Group believes Mithun Chakrabort­y is probably the only actor who has been successful in both cinema and television in Hindi and Bengali genres. He has been instrument­al in bringing forth the dancing talent from distant parts of the country to give them a platform to prove their mettle. Besides rewarding the actor, the Group also announced scholarshi­ps for the students who appeared for the Madhyamik, ICSE/CBSE (10h Standard) exam and scored above 70% the previous year. This initiative has been taken to encourage the students to achieve better academic results. The group believes in creating a positive impact by paying back to its people who have made it what it is today. To materialis­e this purpose, the group has taken initiative to distribute rice and dal to forty-nine families who were identified as the most malnourish­ed by the local authoritie­s. The group will also contribute to a greener environmen­t by planting saplings along the Rajarhat road. The evening was also a special one for the employees who have completed 25 years of their service in the P C Chandra Group. They were conferred with the special Long Service Awards as a gesture of saluting their contributi­on to the growth of the organizati­on. Mithun Chakrabort­y’s quotation: “It is my honour and privilege to receive this esteemed award. I am grateful to the P C Chandra fraternity for conferring on me such an accolade which is known for awarding the stalwarts from every walk of life”
