The life of an artiste is full of uncertainty. Artiste entertains but without any recognition. Film industry is still not considered as industry. There is no Provident Fund no gratuity no security of any kind. West Bengal Motion Picture Artist's Forum is committed to stand beside the members through various welfare activities. 'Batayon' is such an endeavor. This is first of its kind where representative from the film and television industry show their literary talent and it serves a different flavour to the cross section of the society. Through this quarterly magazine apart from the literary aspect our motive is to raise fund for the distressed artistes. At the same time it will help us to reach our goal to consolidate the future of the neglected personalities from the world of entertainment.
