“As we all know that the corona-crisis has created unprecedented challenges before humanity. One of the very important battles in this hour of crisis is being fought by those who have lost their daily earnings.”
“Under his captaincy, the monks of ISKCON Kolkata are enthused to play this long Test match and fight together the battle against hunger for many families here in Kolkata.
“I am a great fan of Dada and have watched many of his innings on the cricket ground. But his innings of feeding 10,000 people everyday is the best one. ISKCON expresses its immense gratitude to Ganguly,” Das added.
ISKCON is distributing food to four lakh people daily across the country.
