Restrictions to continue to maintain adequate safety against the spread of the pandemic.
As is well-known, Durga Puja being by far the most significant event for all Bengalis and is celebrated with substantial grandiose and enthusiasm. However, as known to all, the dangers of the third wave of the pandemic still loom large, which is why this year, there are likely to be many restrictions to ensure adequate safety measures against the spread is maintained. The COVID19 Corona Virus has been a significant health hazard and has claimed many lives. Along with that, it has brought a severe blow to the economy, and the idol makers of Kumartuli, too, have been hard hit with it.
Keeping this noble intention in mind, we truly appreciate the initiative undertaken by this eminent Radio Station. We are also confident that much on these lines, other leading radio stations too would do something in this direction, which will help uplift the poor and needy.
Like all other media sectors, radio too has played a significant role in serving society, and it is just repeating what has happened in the past.
