AVIJIT NANDI MAJUMDAR , President - IMPACT

                                            

I am the only child of my parents. My father was a WBCS officer and mother was a school teacher turned house wife. The family’s origin is traced to Sylhet district of erstwhile East Bengal where my grand father and his family were landlords or zaminders. The Nandi Majumdar family is well known in Habigung and Sylhet district of Bangladesh

We are a traditional conservative Bengali family and have great respect for our values and culture. Ours were a close knit family but then tragedy stuck when dad was diagnosed to be suffering from renal failure. We tried hard and provided the best of treatment but my father breathed his last in 1999.

I stayed with my mother and life went on well till 2003 when my mother suffered a massive celebral attack and died after prolonged treatment at the BM Birla Medical research and Hospital.

My wife Malini is from the famous Bhowal family of Dhaka. She studied in South Point school and then did her college from South City college where she graduated in arts.

She joined Star group as circulation and distribution executive and worked in the company for four years before quitting after marriage. She subsequently joined the MBA course and completed it. She then joined EIILM—one of Kolkata’s leading B school as a lecturer and is currently an associate professor of IISWM---a leading management College of Kolkata under the Calcutta University. 

I am deeply involved in social work.  I took the initiative to form Impact—a As a bureau chief in TVTN, I have covered field assignments as well as done special stories. I have reported from the dangerous killing fields of Lalgarh, Jhargram and Purulia. I have also interviewed celebrities like Akshay Kumar, Saurav ganguly and others while covered elections and politicians from Rahul Gandhi , Mamata Banerjee, Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, Dinesh Trivedi, and Somnath Chatterjee, Rajnath Singh.

I am an optimist and an extrovert. I talk a lot and try and keep everybody happy. I love to take every day as it comes because one never knows what is in store for future.

Professionally, of course the readers and the viewers are the best judge but then I can vouch that I have always given more than 100 percent to my job. I am literally married to my profession and have thousands of exclusive and breaking stories to my credit. But then the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

I love mixing with people and through my professional avenue, I have come to know and become close to people across various fields like, singer Usha Uthup, musician, Bikram Ghosh, Jahar Sircar and senior IAS and IPS officers and politicians.

Both my family and my in-laws’ family are highly established and successful professional in various fields.

Well in a nutshell, that’s all about me and my family.

I have a ten year old son Avideep, who is quite a brat. He is playful, naughty and I feel is extremely intelligent. He is studying in St Lawrence school.

EXTRACARRICULAR ACTIVITY:

I have represented school and college in football and cricket. I consider myself as a fitness freak and have won several badminton tournaments. I was also into dramatis in school and college and later have acted and organised plays and theatre. I have also taken part in several UN projects and was chosen to represent India at the world journalists exchange programme ---International visitors exchange programme—of USA in 2008. I toured several US cities as a part of the delegate and participated in prestigious exchanges with US senators and political leaders.

social welfare organisation. We organise free medical camps for the poor and downtrodden where medicines and treatment are provided free of cost. Some of renowned doctors are involved in these camps along with junior doctors from well known state government hospitals. My motto is to provide the best of treatment to the downtrodden, as much and as far as possible. The medical camps are run in association with the West Bengal police and Kolkata police and we have been on and at it since 1996. The medical camps are conducted every Saturday and Sunday and camps are being run in three places at the moment: we have had medical camps at Ekbalpore, behala, Thakurpukur, Pailan, Lake, Tollygung to name a few. Union minister of state for health Dinesh Trivedi, director general of police, Naparajit Mukherjee, minister of state for home civil defence, Sreekumar Mukherjee are some of the few who are actively involved with us.

I also organise a fire safety award in association with the state government and West Bengal police. There was a spate of fires in puja pandals in 1991-92 and state government was at their wit’s end. The fire services department requested me and my team to bail them with some awareness programme among puja organisers to adopt proper safety measures: We started the safe puja campaign and journey in 1993. My idea was simple. To get celebrities and bureaucrats and ministers into a panel of judges who tour the puja pandals and rank them on the safety measures that they have adopted.  The top three are awarded prizes in a glittering ceremony;

Union ministers Dinesh Trivedi, Mamata Banerjee, Pranab Mukherjee, Sushil Shinde, Subodh Kant Sahay, Akhilesh Prasad Singh, NN Meena, Kabindra Purakayastha have been with us over various years. We had started off organising our base camps for the puja days in five star hotels and then shifted to Tollygung Club. We have been organising the award ceremony also at Tollygung Club..   

The safety award has been a success. According to statistics, incdents of fire has come down to an almost nil from about 35 incidents in the nineties. The puja organisers are now more confidant about adopting safety measures in pandals. And I and my team can definitely garner some credit for it..


SANTANU SAHA , Secretary , IMPACT

Dileep Karmakar - Member , Canada

                         

I am a simple grass-root people's or community worker. However, I will try to provide you something later. But, nothing is important that I could inform or write. I was the founder Chairman of an NGO in Bangladesh and was fortunately kicked out by the greedy clique compeers when it was registered with the NGO Bureau and received a large amount of foreign donations. Otherwise I would not have been settled in Canada. I've acquired also bitter experience by working as Coordinator and management level for quite a few renowned national and international NGO's in Bangladesh for about 20 years. I obtained basic and advanced Trainers' Training from abroad and imparted trainings to different institutions and many staff members for their personal and organizational strength & development. I independently or jointly conducted many evaluations of government and NGO's programs.

A few years earlier as I wondered along JL Nehru wondering whats in store for me in future little did I realize that within half a decade I will be warming the chair of leading regional based international news channel. I am an extrovert and love mixing with people. My job at ANM News has taken me to new heights. I dabble with political leaders, stars from the entertainment world, diplomats, police officers to dig out exclusive stories. Recently I got initiated into Impact. The organisation has shown me human side of the world and I have gained immense experience. I am a simple girl who love to work hard and climb up the success ladder.
