Bodybuilding, once considered a niche, is now enjoying mainstream success due to increased awareness, proliferation of fitness centres and related available online content. Forming a human body cannot only be perceived in the physical realms. To reach this state, one must do things that require mental, emotional, psychological as well as spiritual development. NPC Bengal has endeavoured to provide a platform for this magnificent fusion of art and science with a vision to promote health and fitness and to show how much more control one can have over the human body and its potential than its limits.
“We have kept the rewards high,” says Pijush Sarkar, “to promote the competition in the Bengal market. Earlier, people from this state had to go to other states to compete in shows like these. But we won 2 silver medals last year in the Amateur Olympia that changed the perception of people and now both Chand and Soumita are brand ambassadors of this event, which is a huge plus for this competition and the competitors alike.”
“Both Chand and Soumita will be felicitated in the event. They will also be present in our press conference,” continued Pijush, “Since this competition is the selection event for Mr. India from West Bengal, we want nothing but the best – both in terms of the competition and the judges”.
