Recently, the Board of Trustees of Ananda Mandir has established an annual 'Kishalay Award for Writing Excellence in Memory of Gauri Sen Gupta'. This has been made possible by an endowment from Avijit Sen, a respected life member of Ananda Mandir, in the memory of his late mother-in-law.

The award is intended to inspire the young school age children and kin of the members of Ananda Mandir to enhance their writing skills and promote community involvement. It will be administered by the Awards Recognition Committee of Ananda Mandir. For more information please contact Subrata Bhaumik
