As the weather turns and Autumn sets in with russet and gold,it also ushers in the five golden days of Durga Pujo replete with dhaak, dhup, dhuno, arati, anjali and the quintessential bhog. With that comes the reminiscing and the yearning of Pujo from the bygone era and sometimes that emotion can be enough to lay the foundations of an organisation and recreate those golden days to celebrate ‘desherPujoBideshe’.
Durga Puja / Dussherra captures the true spirit and culture of Bengal. We as devotees, welcome Mother Durga and her children during her visit, amidst joy and a sense of togetherness. This is a time to renew friendship, make new ones and share goodness across the whole of the community.
Light transforms darkness; good conquers evil, envy and hatred. Hope overcomes despair amidst the sound of conch shells and drums (dhak). Delicious food (Prasad), music and dance add to the spirit of goodwill and friendship
