An Ode to the Nation

Senco Gold & Diamonds, the largest jewellery retail chain from Eastern India, drew up a noble way to pay homage to the martyrs of our country by organizing a Youth Talent Hunt contest in Bengaluru recently.

Christened “An Ode to the Nation,” the contest—being held in memory of the 41 CRPF jawans who gave up their lives to protect the nation—not only presented the students and youths of Bengaluru with an opportunity to showcase their talents but also to pay their tributes to these brave souls.

Suvankar Sen, Executive Director, Senco Gold & Diamonds, said, “These brave jawans have made the supreme sacrifice, laying down their lives to protect us and our nation. It is our way of saluting these martyrs, however small it is. The platform aims to bring together children, women and especially the youth – who are the future of our country, and mobilize them by inspiring them to contribute further to our nation. We are grateful to our partners and friends who have come forward to make our efforts a success.”
