Aakaash Bangla felicitates young women achievers with ‘Sonar Meye’

It was time for young women achievers to stand up and be counted at ‘Sonar Meye’, a contest organised by Bengali entertainment channel Aakaash Bangla and MP Jewellers, a leading Kolkata-based jeweller, on August 25 in Kolkata.

This is the third consecutive year that the ‘Sonar Meye’ contest is being organised by Aakaash Bangla. Soumitra Roy, the Bengali channel’s Assistant Vice-President, Marketing, said, “We were the first channel to come up with this idea of felicitating young women from various fields in Eastern India. We felt the need to recognise women achievers from various fields. The contest also helps us bond with our viewers better.”

Young women achievers were chosen from four categories namely – Films (acting), television (acting), Dance and Music, and Sports. The contest also had a special category, in which a person from amongst the viewers was appreciated for her achievements.

The nominees were chosen by Aakaash Bangla’s viewers and the winners were selected by a panel of local celebrities. Actresses Rachana Banerjee and Chandreyee Ghosh were chosen for the acting categories, Film and Television, respectively; athlete Soma Biswas was chosen for Sports, and Mou Mukherjee was selected for the Dance and Music category.
