Bikram filled with ecstasy in his new role

Noted percussionist Bikram Ghosh is thrilled at being selected as the brand ambassador for the coming West Bengal Assembly election by the Election Commission and says he will love to motivate citizens to exercise their franchise. Lauding the EC's move to connect with the people, Ghosh, a well-known figure in Kolkata's social circuit, said not participating in the democratic exercise amounted to failure to perform a citizen's most important duty. ''In a democracy you must exercise the right to vote. Abstaining won't serve any purpose and will only show you as a non-responsive citizen,'' said Ghosh on Tuesday.
