Profile - Dr. Mamata Niyogi-Nakra: Recipient of the Medal of Honor by the National Assembly of Quebec

On November 27, 2016 Kala Bharati organized a meaningful event where many artists and promoters of the arts in the city gathered for brainstorming and contributing to an initiative Kala Bharati is undertaking called Building Bridges. It is a proposition made by Carole Poirier, MNA, Hochelaga-Maisonneuve in Montreal, under which various possibilities of twinning Kolkata and Montreal through sharing cultural exchanges are being explored.
Carole Poirier is the elected member of the official opposition in the Quebec National Assembly, from the very district in which Dr. Mamata Niyogi–Nakra and Dr. Harbans Nakra reside and Kala Bharati, the Bharatanatya center she founded is based.

The evening also gave an opportunity to celebrate a momentous occasion in Dr. Mamata’s presence on Quebec’s cultural scene. This was a perfect moment to recognize her receiving the Medal of Honor in March this year, awarded by the National Assembly of Quebec for “perseverance in sharing our cultures.”
