 Iti Samanta


I am in multiple roles from being an editor of a monthly magazine dedicated to women's empowerment. Apart from these roles I've indulged myself in many philanthropic work and programmes intended at educating children of deprived sections of the society, promoting gender equality, and developing the socio-economic status of women on a large scale.Shephali is my designing  house where I gave our state's culture and tradition as a theme in my sarees. Where you can get our traditional pata chitra as the design of my saree so that it's a indirect respect to my culture and tradition and literature.
Apart from that I have doing so many works at my native place Kalarabank where I  provide quality education for the rural best childrens so that they can get maximum benifit to move forward in life and they will get all extracurricular activities in that village area.
