CU to confer DLit upon CM Mamata on January 11 at Nazrul Mancha
Kolkata: The University of Calcutta will confer DLit upon Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for her contribution to literature, industrial growth and social service.
The decision was taken at the Syndicate meeting of Calcutta University. This is for the first time when a sitting Chief Minister will be awarded DLit. The function will be held at Nazrul Mancha on January 11, 2018. Despite her busy schedule, Mamata Banerjee spends time in making sketches and writing poems.
A collection of poetry titled Kathanjali has become immensely popular. Some of her Bengali books include Sahishnuta, Paribartan, Biswa Bangla Prothom Porjaye, Chokher Tara, Ma, Manabik, Upolobdhi, Amar Pahar, Nandi Ma, Jago Bangla, Jibon Sangram and Kanyar Chokhe Kanyashree.
My unforgettable memories, an autobiographical sketch in English has earned popularity. She has also sketched the logo of three popular
projects of the state government — Kanyashree, Sabuj Sathi and Gatidhara. The state government's theme song for U-17 World Cup has also been written and composed by Mamata Banerjee.
