Reaction from Dr. Suryanil Ghosh, Chief Mentor of Team Mushroomers and Chairman of TotalStart:
Nothing beats the feeling of a son or daughter's success. Pradip Das is my unofficially adopted son. He is an orphan, a born blind and an entrepreneur leading Mushroomers -A Blind Youth Enterprise www.mushroomers.in . He just called me to say that he got selected for the state award for entrepreneurship as a blind from West Bengal. Exalted!!!!!!!
Jaideep Chakrabarti, CEO of Future Netwings Solutions, pledged Rs 50,000 as a donor. That is 5 donors in one! What a heart!!!! Hundred Donors, Rs 10,000 each, to reach to Rs 10 Lakhs for Team Mushroomers - One more step towards it.
Jaideep Chakrabarti shared: I think you all are doing a wonderful humanitarian service, specially with the blind and I would try to contribute a token amount of Rs 50,000, if that helps.
What a pledge what a heart. Thank you Mr. Jaideep, now we are a little more closer to our goal of Rs 10,00,000 with 100 Rs 10,000 donors each. You by yourself acted as 5 donors in one, but only the 4th donor. Much appreciate again. Can possibly only come from an Entrepreneur Philanthropist like you, Mr. Jaideep. We wish Future Netwings Solutions Pvt. Ltd. many successes.
Picture above: Early this year, Jaideep mentoring the blind youth entrepreneur team Mushroomers in the Rugby field of Paul Walsh another great human being.

We Mushroomers - A Blind Youth Enterprise Team www.Mushroomers.in immediately need to raise INR 1,000,000 (INR 1 million). We need altogether about INR 7,900,000 (Approximately INR 8 million) for the next 6 quarters. The rest we will be raising through bank loans or other channels from government or large corporate house CSRs or grants. We are reaching out to our friends and well wishers we have on to see whether we can do a better crowd funding without using a crowd funding platform. We need to raise only INR 10,000 each from only 100 of our friends on Facebook. Would surely like this experiment to succeed for our sake, the Blind Youth Entrepreneurs and our efforts for the last 2 years.
