On 6th and 7th 0f March, 2010 we celebrated the completion of 25 years of our Rationalist Association at Juba kendra,(Youth Centre) Moulali, Kolkata. 93 delegates came from 16 districts of Bengal. There were interactive session, panel discussion on problems at the branch level as well as various social issues. General Secretary Prabir Ghosh read out the annual report. New resolutions were taken for the coming year. The promises made on the last meet in 2008 at Habra — 1) to make the organization self reliant by creating sufficient in-house funds and 2) to have joint leadership by involving a group of junior leaders — were proved to have come true by the success of this gala silver-jubilee celebration.
There was magic by member Soumya Deb from Asansol and there was recitation by Soma from Kharagpur. Then on the 7th evening our chief guest Advocate Bikashranjan Bhattacharya, the Mayor of Kolkata stunned the audience with his wonderfully bold and catchy speech on the importance of Rationalist movement and our association. Then Sri Swapan Basu, the connoisseur of Folk Songs mesmerised the full house at Moulali. The songs were followed by the trade mark program ” Aloukik noy, Loukik” (anti-supernatural show) by the organisation conducted by Sri Biplab Das. Biplab Das from Bankura has been awarded the leader of the year for his extensive work and dedication. BRATION OFFive members were given medals as tokens of appreciation.
