Ashish Kumar

Hon. President (2015 – till date)

Mr. Ashish Kumar resides in Sadbhawna Apartments in Sector 22, Dwarka, New Delhi. He has been an active member of Deepanwita since 2008. Ashish has been working with the Delhi Govt. in the capacity of Sub-divisional Magistrate. He is a big time foodie and known for his generous nature when it comes to food.

Namaskar Deepanwitians,

Words are not enough to express my gratitude to all the esteemed members of this great organisation who has given me this opportunity to serve as the President for the 4th executive council. I on behalf of my executive council will ensure that we live up to the expectations of every member and solidify and build on the strong foundation laid by the eminent and hardworking team of the previous executive councils.

It is still fresh in my memory that blessed evening of 2007 when few of Deepanwita’s members approached me at my residence and passionately explained me the need of starting a cultural association in Sector 22 & 23 for our community. Though skeptical at first, but I am proud to have decided to join what I call a movement of harmony, brotherhood and togetherness called – DEEPANWITA.

Time flies and so was these 9 years. From few of us, it is now a strong family of over 200 members / well wishers. In this passage of time we had our ups and downs, but that only made us stronger, bigger and brought us more closer to each other.

We in Deepanwita have always accepted the new with open arms and that is what made us different from many of the associations in and around us. We believe in acceptance and ushering in new thought and value each and everyone’s ideology. I can assure you that each and every member of this 4th executive council will be exceeding expectations in living up to this culture of Deepanwita and make sure this feeling for brotherhood and togetherness solidifies.

Every idea is important and useful, as we would need the experience of the seniors, we also need the exuberance and fresh thoughts of the young brigades, and Deepanwita is certainly blessed with young blood, who, I am sure will contribute substantially in making Deepanwita a much bigger and better place.

At the end, I must thank the office bearers of the previous executive councils for a strong foundation and the 4th executive council will need your valued support to build upon that.

Thank you once again members for giving me and my team this opportunity to carry forward this movement, we will remain indebted and will request your support, suggestions, guidance and valuable advice for better working.

Blessed to be a Deepanwitian…

Ashish Kumar

Dear members and well wishers,

It is a great honor and privilege for me to assume the role as Secretary of the 4th Executive Council of Deepanwita Cultural Association. I am blessed to have the support from the new Executive Council comprising of very talented and dedicated individuals.

Being one of the founder members, over the last 9 years, I have noticed how Deepanwita has evolved to play a critical role in upholding our Bengali tradition and culture in Dwarka, New Delhi, helping us to connect with each other to foster friendships and build a cohesive society.

During my long association, I have seen the tremendous dedication and energy of all our members & well wishers. Frankly speaking, it only gave me vigor to involve and work more. I distinctly remember when we formed this association, the memberships were few, but today our memberships have grown to a large number. More new people have joined. Their ideas have enlightened us, shown us new avenues and we have given them due consideration. Without support of all of you it would have not been possible to carry out the activities. I recall the selfless and untiring contribution made by all members.

Going forward, in addition to organizing our regular events, we are hoping to engage in activities that will help us to integrate with other communities and collectively participate in social causes. We need your full support!

It is the Association which is formed by you – our members and well wishers. Your selfless involvement in every aspect of the development of this association will be critical.

I assure you that the new Executive Council will make every attempt to provide the leadership this Association requires in order to achieve its objectives. Your continued encouragement will help us to serve you better.

Let me take this opportunity to recognize and congratulate the previous Executive Council led by Mr. Byomkesh Bhattacharya for their leadership, passion and hard work.

Once again, I thank you for your support and look forward to interact with you in our upcoming events.

Sincerely yours,
R. K. Samal
