PKC is the first of its kind in our country with the objective of nurturing healthy interaction and social habits, in a joyful environment. Prabir Kanungo Centre For Children’s Socialisation, located at 83, Regent Estate, Kolkata is a new initiative of Bengal Service Society, NeuroGen Brain and Spine Institute (Mumbai) and Blooming Dale Academy (High School). PKC will cater to children in the age group between 4 -14 years. Two wings of the Centre will be socialisation through activities and neurorehabilitation therapies. In the socialization wing of the centre, the activities that PKC would offer include, group games, photography, storybook reading, story writing sessions, board games, nature walks, open stage for performances, interaction with eminent persons every month, gardening, library, film show, Quiz, creative painting and craft and much more. The activities in socialization wing are much different from any other
centre and all at a very nominal charge. Krishnendu Kanungo, son of Prabir Kanungo and President, Bengal Service Society told while they race to keep pace in a fast-moving world their children grow up in a lonely environment with only the social media and smartphones to keep them company, Hence, they hear of autism, depression and aggression in children more than ever before. They need someone to communicate with. It is hard to be a parent. It is tougher to be the parent of a child who struggles to learn simple All Day Living activities or has gone into a shell because the child has nobody to communicate with. Trust, help, and support of competent therapists and social workers along with participation in events, activities, games and conversations, are essential to bringing to these children a healthy childhood. This is precisely what we are aiming at in PKC. Reshmi Banerjee told It makes her extremely happy that something so vibrant is happening in the residence of her father. The project gains a uniqueness because it is housed at the residence of Dhiraj Choudhury a painter of international fame. The support and enthusiasm of his daughter Reshmi Banerjee in supporting the concept is appreciable.
