Ranada Prasad Shaha
Rai Bahadur Ranada Prasad Shaha was a true son of this soil, a man extraordinaire, whose life’s work and achievements are beyond comparison. Not only did he sacrifice his life for his beloved country but his legacy- Kumudini Welfare Trust of Bengal (KWT) – stands as the highest form of philanthropy. The Trust was founded in June 1947 with the mission of providing exclusive service to the suffering humanity.
A great visionary, he was indeed concerned about the wellbeing of the poor and specially the underprivileged women. He bequeathed all his wealth for the welfare of the less fortunate. What prompted him to undertake this initiative was his childhood experience of his mother’s death….
