East Bengal Club felicitates ISC topper from West Bengal
East Bengal Club yesterday felicitated Ananya Maity, the ISC topper from the state of West Bengal. Maity secured 99.6% marks in her exams and was honoured by the Red and Gold brigade for her achievement.
The officials and semi-officials reached her residence at Narendrapur where she was handed over the gifts. She was given bouquets, sweets and Hilsha Fish-the unofficial trademark of the East Bengalians, the favourite dish of most of the ‘Bangal’s.
The Club President Kalyan Majumdar also talked to the girl over phone and congratulated her.
It’s a unique step taken by East Bengal, something which does not carry much precedence in Kolkata Football. Although, the issue has also attracted some negativities but if other clubs can also indulge themselves in such activities and pursue them regularly then it would do only good for football as a whole.
