Kalamandir Kalyan, CEO-Kalamandir, giving his note on the occasion said, “A thought of paying back to the society has lead to the initiation of this noble cause called ‘Kalamandir Foundation’. Serving others and helping the needy gave us eternal delight. It was the greatest achievement we ever achieved. We have undertaken numerous initiatives in the areas of health, education and environment. Providing scholarships, organizing blood

donation camps, protesting against drugs, promoting green revolution and donations to charity are few among those initiatives carried over by the Foundation. It’s my pleasure to share with you that our efforts and struggle for the good has been recognized in the form of ‘Best CSR Practice Award’, at Responsible Business Awards 2012. The response that we got from the people had stirred our insights to work more and accomplish further for the betterment of the society. I take this opportunity to thank media, volunteers and all the supporters of Kalamandir Foundation without which this would not have been the reality.”
