29 May 2020 | Priya Bhardwaj

Miss England 2019 Bhasha Mukherjee, a doctor by profession and an inspiration for millions, is adding another feat to her accomplished cap. After working tirelessly for the covid-19 patients and hanging up her crown, Dr. Bhasha is going to be raising proceeds for cyclone victims in Bengal, India. Bengal is her place of origin and she wishes to help out amidst all the chaos and panic.

Bhasha will be joining Shashi Tharoor, another honorary doctorate, to raise money for the Amphan Cyclone Victims in Bengal, India! Bhasha took to her social media to reveal her initiative in a post captioned, “Two individuals. Both Doctors. One graduated medical school at 23. Another got a PHD honorary doctorate at 22. Both connected to India and Calcutta more so one way or other. One was born in the UK and raised in India; one was born in India and raised in UK. Both these shots were taken in the Oxford Union. The oldest university in history.  Both representing a nation. The best part is that the two of us are going to be featuring in a charity ZOOM TV show! All proceeds are for the Amphan Cyclone Victims in Bengal, India!”
