I am Purabi Ghosh, Zone Chairperson of Lion’s club International District 322-A. Lion’s club International is the largest service organisation in the world.

I am associated with 50 Organisations. My education qualification is MCom, throughout my education I had received a scholarship due to my excellence in academics. A true inspiration to me during my childhood days was Swami Vivekananda’s ideology and it helped me set a path in life. For the last 40 years I have dedicated my life to help the underprivileged.

Share about your business

My business is to serve the society and the people who are underprivileged, an example to this is that I’ve adopted 2 schools, one being a blind school named Divya Jyoti Netraheen School and the other being a school named Saraswati Gyaan Jyoti Aadarsh Public School in Jamshedpur. This gives an opportunity to the underprivileged to have a sense of education as well as have a chance at creating a better life for themselves. My goal is to empower women especially from the rural areas. I work through Gyaan Vigyaan Samiti of East Singbhum in rural areas for the uplifting the women and children. Another one of my undertakings is to notify and inform the women staying in these areas about their superstitions. I spend my remaining time with the people living in the old age homes to spend a few smiles and learn a bit about life from these folks.

Share something from your Corporate Career

I joined LIC in 1981 and worked for 37 years before retirement. My job profile was customer oriented. In my tenure of 37 years, I have helped the customer with death claims, maturity claims, claim survival benefits, provide loans against policies, etc. I have helped in organizing a lot of events all throughout my career in LIC like insurance week celebration, sit and draw competitions, etc. I was a representative of all CSR activities conducted by LIC. I have represented LIC’s Jamshedpur division for continuously 15 years in all India LIC games in chess.

I also visit people regularly in Old Age homes and also help them financially. These monetary and non monetary activities have given me the opportunity to make a difference in various lives which I’m very happy about.

What do you want to be acknowledged for

Anything else you wish to share

There is something that I have always believed in:
good will is important for the long run.
What I mean by it is, having good relations with people often helps in situations which are unpredictable and helps you In life. Everyone should aspire to create their own space in the world as no one would bestow you with one. Positive chain of thought is something that I believe is important for a person’s mental health. This eventually helps in being happy which is of utmost importance.
