Sub : Revival of the Auditorium and Community Center “Sammilani” at Kulti , West Bengal

Dear Sir,

                We the residence and people who are rooted to Kulti are deprived of having an Auditorium and Community Center at our beloved town for last 17 years now, since the production closure of Kulti Growth Works (IISCO) during 2003. Earlier we used to have a Large Auditorium (Since 1929) named “Sammilani” which had witnessed the glorious cultural past of this town and also worked as an epicenter of Art and Culture of the region and contributed towards Kulti being called the Cultural Capital of the Coal and Steel Belt of West Bengal.

                Unfortunately, due to non maintenance post 2003 the auditorium is in poor condition currently (beyond usable) and the people of the whole area is suffering due to the same , the cultural creativity has been stalled. Unless renovated now the building may collapse shortly and will cause innumerable loss to the whole society apart from the material loss to the government.

                Since the property belongs to IISCO (SAIL), we humbly request you to take immediate necessary steps to avoid further damage to it and provide the people of the area a place to cultivate the Indian Art and Culture again.

                We on behalf of “Kulti Mahotsav Committee” (A Charitable Trust which conducts various Cultural and Social programs in the area) is ready to take the responsibility to work towards revival of this premises named “Sammilani” with consent from the authorities and run the same. In case this is agreed in Principle by the Government we can come up with a specific proposal on the same.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Yours Sincerely

On Behalf of Kulti Mahotsav Committee
