FROM SECRETARY DESK
It’s always been especial for me to introduce my organisation JIGACHA SMILE WELFARE SOCIETY, in public domain as it’s been 10 Years now I am attached with this esteemed organisation, since its inception in the year 2010 being a founder member and currently working as chief functionary and secretary, I recently had the pleasure and privilege of conducting workshops covering all the personnel of the organization of whose work had enlighten the organization.
The workshops program was the first of a series intended to be held over the coming months on such issues as motivation, philosophy of functioning, the value systems we live and work by, our vision, and other areas only indirectly connected with their daily “grind” but which surely, affect their relationships with each other and with their patients. The response from all groups (which were as heterogeneous as such a multi-tasking and widespread organization demands) was strangely similar, in that all revealed the same values and the same vision even if expressed in different ways.
In the year 2010 when we started the journey with 6 active persons namely Dr. Sk. MD Lutfar, Dr. Sudersan Manna, Suprabhab Pratihar, Somnath Koley (Ram da), Biman Bag and myself started work in the under privileged areas of Mou Khal (Garfa area/Santragachi) organising Free Health Camp, supply of Mother and Child Nutrition and other Health Requirement. I really thank this person from my heart for their valuable time and voluntary contribution towards the organisation and the society.
