BCS Executive Committee
The Bengali Cultural Society of Cleveland (BCS) would like to extend an invite to its event, Meet and Greet with Somen Debnath, between 6.30 PM – 9.30 PM, Friday, April 12, at Cleveland Heights Church (former ICC Building), 12412 Cedar Rd., Cleveland Heights, OH 44106.
The event’s mission is to raise funds for
Somen, a fellow Indian from Kolkata, who’s on a World Tour on his
bicycle, to spread HIV/AIDS awareness among the underprivileged people
who have the lowest level of awareness about this deadly disease. In his
quest, the daredevil globetrotter, is also conveying the message of
peace and humanity, as well as promoting Indian culture worldwide.
Somen believes in humanity and Swami
Vivekananda’s message and treats everyone as equals. The love and
respect he shows others fortunately is almost always reciprocated. Each
time he ran into a predicament – whether it was a stolen bicycle or
lack of a place to sleep or food to eat – the locals came to his aid.
The backing for his world tour has been mostly provided by patrons that
he met on his way. Now that he’s stopping through Cleveland, let’s show
him some Northeast Ohio love!
