In his career, Sourav Ganguly was called ‘Prince of Kolkata’. He is proving that he is actually the prince of Kolkata. Sourav Ganguly, the prince of Kolkata, is trying to ease the sufferings of the people by standing beside the helpless people of Kolkata in any emergency.
He left the cricket game for India almost an era ago. Now he is in the highest charge of Indian cricket, the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). In this regard, Ganguly has kept a close eye on humanitarian issues.
The whole of India has been in lockdown since March 25 due to coronavirus. Those who are conditioned or transparent, have no problem with this lockdown. But the poor and helpless people are in serious terrible situation. The prince of Kolkata stands beside these people.
Ganguly has donated 2,000 kg rice to the headquarters of the Ramakrishna Mission at Belu Field, a place of his childhood. This time he has come forward with the help of the helpless by joining the ISKCON in Kolkata.
He arrived at the Kolkata center of ISKCON on Saturday and provided food for 10,000 people daily. The day after that, ISKCON used to host about 10,000 people. With the help of Ganguly, they are now able to put food in the mouth of 20,000 people a day.
Information given by Radharaman Das, vice-president of Kolkata ISKCON. He said,
“From Kolkata ISKCON, we cook about 10,000 people a day. Our beloved Sourav Dada comes forward with a helping hand, which has doubled our ability. We can now provide food for 20,000 people.”
Describing Sourav’s innings as one of the best in the side, Radharaman added, “Kolkata ISKCON is getting the courage and inspiration to fight in this long Test match under the captaincy of Dada. We can help many exposed families in Kolkata. Dada has a lot of good innings on the cricket field. But the current innings is one of the best. Kolkata ISKCON is grateful to Dada.”
With the help of Sourav, only 20,000 people are being provided food daily from ISKCON, Kolkata. ISKCON provides food to about 400,000 people every day across India.
