Puja Type :   COMMUNITY
South Kolkata
Year of initiation  1944

This Puja was set up by few elderly residents of the area (PARA) some six and half decades ago in the southern part of Calcutta to observe the greatest community festival of Bengal. Although, Baroari in nature, now this Puja has become a household event for all the residents of the locality. The objective of this Puja is to impart the feeling of togetherness amongst the people of the locality apart from upholding the rich heritage of Bengal and observe the religious rituals as well. Further, we have never been part of the cat race of prizes and awards that has been associated with Durga Puja since last two decades or so. Instead our aim had always been social, cultural and religious harmony the greatest tradition of Bengal. In addition, our earnest endeavor has always been to stay connected with people and serve them according to our ability. Fighting for social causes, helping the underprivileged, serving the distressed have always been the major focus of our effort. We also strive hard to provide new aspirants the scope to display their ability in the field of performing art thus organizing cultural programs immediately after the Puja during our Bijaya Sammelani.


2005 Theme :
  As mentioned above, we have never been part of the cat race of prizes and awards that has been associated with Durga Puja since last two decades or so. Ours is a very low budget Puja which is a combined effort of our very own people. Thus we have never competed in any such event or competition and we are firmly committed to our belief. However, our efforts were appreciated by the world famous organization Bharat Sevashram Sangha when we were been awarded Srestha Rupokar for our efforts that year our Puja pandal and the image portrayed the rich heritage of Maitheli Art form.
