The young students also staged a street play entitled 'Bodnaam' (Bad Name).

One of the members of the organization also said that it is planning to showcase a cultural programme for the street children.

Another member said: "Every three to four months we publish a magazine. We are also planning for a programme inside the metro stations. The talks are on with Prattush Ghosh, the Deputy General Maneger of Metro Railways."

"We want people to contribute in every possible way. If we can gather sufficient amount of money, we will distribute clothes during Pujas. If we contribute even ten percent from our Puja shopping, we can bring smile to someone's face."
