Cyclone Amphan: Aparna Sen Demands Funds For Poor, Says ‘Centre Should Consider This As National Disaster’
The world is currently battling the novel COVID-19 outbreak. Many lives have been claimed globally due to the disease and now Cyclone Amphan has hit West Bengal and Odisha on Wednesday.

Aparna Sen took to her Twitter handle and demanded funds for the poor people who have been badly affected by the natural calamity. “The Centre should consider yesterday's cyclone a national disaster & release funds for help. The damage to life and property has been devastating to say the least. The poor have suffered the most as always despite all precautions taken,” Aparna Sen tweeted.

Thousands of houses were destroyed and buildings were damaged. Media reports claimed that the cyclone was about 30 kilometres in diameter. Lakhs of people were taken to shelters in West Bengal and Odisha.  Ankush Hazara has also shared the pictures of the aftereffect of the cyclone.

On the work front, Aparna Sen’s last directorial Ghawre Bairey Aaj has received many appreciations from all corners. The film has been part of national and international film festivals. The film stars Jisshu Sengupta, Tuhina Das and Anirban Bhattacharya. The film talks about the current socio-political situation of the nation.

The original novel was set in pre-independent India in the time of Bengal’s partition but Aparna Sen has shifted the story to the current time. The story has three central characters Nikhilesh, his wife Bimala and his revolutionist friend Sandip. Sandip has a contradictory nature compared to Nikhilesh, he is more radical and active and Bimala gets easily attracted towards him for this. It leads to an extramarital love triangle.
