We'll be holding a memorial event for Rizwanur Rehman on WEDNESDAY October 31st at Seagull Bookstore, 31A SP Mukherjee Road (Opposite Bhawanipore Police Station).
The event begins from 6pm onwards.
As part of the event, SIXTH VEDA, one of the city's hottest bands will be paying tribute to Rizwanur. P.S - They're trilingual, young and talented. Do not miss
We're also screening a documentary film about Rizwanur and the effect that his death had on us, by a young lady called Alkananda Nag, who has consented to allow Elaan to screen her film for the first time to the general public.
Also, if there is anybody who wants to speak about Rizwanur, his life and the impact it has had on the city, please attend. We're aware that a lot of people are being muzzled by the CBI, but for those who were friends/former students, do drop in.
As those of you who have read our messages to you are aware, Mita Basu, a 15 year old girl has courageously put an end to torturous years of incestuous rape at the hands of her stepfather, Timir Basu, a local CPIM member.
This is at short notice, but we're going to be paying tribute to her courage as well.
There are a number of surprises and announcements waiting to be revealed on Wednesday. We would strongly recommend a visit
If you would like to sponsor/participate/speak at the event, do let us know. All contact information is available on the community homepage.
Looking forward to your support
The Elaan Team
