Kolkata, August 24 (Washington Bangla Radio): With Durga Puja coming up, the people in Kolkata are already busy with their Puja shopping. From buying clothes to purchasing accessories for decorating their homes shoppers engage themselves in all kind of shopping. The shops are thus always crowded with enthusiastic buyers from all over the city. In the midst of this frenzy, Bandhan Creation opened its second outlet in Gariahat recently. The outlet was inaugurated by director Anjan Dutta and his son Neil Dutta. This outlet will be a good shopping destination for the buyers as they will be getting a great variety of dresses to choose from for both the men and the women and also beautiful decorative items for their homes.
With the mission of development of the artisans and craftsmen, Bandhan Creation brings under one roof creations from eighteen states. This leads to the formation of a micro finance under one roof. Bandhan Creation has been actively participating in the progress of the country with the help of micro finance space for the past twelve years. The first outlet of this group was opened in Salt Lake in September 2012. Chandra Shekhar Ghosh, the founder of this group while speaking with WBRI correspondent focused on the activities of this group. “The problem in the handloom and the handicrafts sector in India is that there are few groups which operate at a scale which will have an impact on the lives of millions of people. Our group operates in this zone and tries our best to help the people in engaging them in work and also reviving their arts and crafts. Bandhan has been working in about eighteen states in the country. Most of the artisans whom you see in this shop are from West Bengal, Bihar and Orissa. In the next five years, we have the aim of opening nearly two hundred outlets in the country and covering all the twenty nine states in the country” said Mr. Ghosh.

The father-son duo posed with the traditional Punjabis for the media assembled at the shop. “Parno is a regular customer of Bandhan Creation’s Salt lake outlet. It is from her that I came to know about Bandhan Creations. The endeavor of this group to support the craftsmen from all over the country is a noble effort indeed”, said the ace director. After getting mixed reviews for his first commercial film, Ganesh Talkies, Anjan Dutta is busy with other scripts. “I will avoid the mistakes which I made in Ganesh Talkies” said the director.
