Soumen‘s Workout is a chain of health and fitness centres spread all over Kolkata. The chain has been fighting against lifestyle diseases like obesity, diabetes and even vices like smoking and drinking for a long time.
The chain had decided to take an oath with some celebrities in attendance, vowing against smoking on World No Tobacco Day (31st May) this year, but the event was postponed by a day due to the Bharat Bandh.
On Friday, the oath taking ceremony took place in presence of the chief guest, legendary body builder and India’s first Mr. Universe, Manohor Aich (incidentally turned 100 a few months and survives on only 'panta bhat'), painter Subhaprasanna, actresses Soumili Biswas and Manali Dey, and one of the fittest actors from Tollywood and a role model for fitness - Tota Roychoudhury. The event took place at the head office of Soumen’s Workout located at Ashutosh Mukherjee Road.
