Manick Sorcar was felicitated and inducted as an Honorary Member of the club. District Governor of Rotary International District 3291, Rtn.

Over the years Rotary Club of Calcutta Dalhousie has been active in doing humanitarian services across the state including building sanitation in the villages, vocational training for girls on stitching, knitting and embroidery, pre-school training center for the children of slum dwellers, education for girls up to class XII, etc.
Manick Sorcar’s show was for raising funds for the construction of the palliative care center at Kotalpur, Bankura. The sold out show made a significant contribution to that goal.
