HISTORY

You might be aware that we are the pioneer in the field of organising Durga Puja in a community way in whole of West Bengal, The basic idea behind such move to organise Durga Puja in a community way is to allow public at large to participate wholeheartedly. At the same time attention was focused so that the century long heritage is preserved. You will appreciate that it was a difficult task to properly synchronize the modern trend with heritage. It will not be out of score to mention that besides organising Durga Puja we used to undertake various measures round the year like organising Blood Donation Camp, Health Camp, Eye Cure Camp. Free Distribution of Medicine, Free Distribution of Books and Contributing generously in Minister's Relief Fund when situation arises; for which substantial amount is require for every year. We are proud to announce that we were able to do justice, to the extent possibilities, in the field of such synchronization continuously. This year we are going to organise our Sarbojanin Durgotsab in a befitting manner with pomp and grandeur. You are definitely aware that our Puja was awarded a number of prizes including SARAD SAMMAN of Asian Paints and different honours announced by the Government of West Bengal. Millions of people used to visit our Mandap daily during the Puja days.
Our Puja is also famous for rhythm of Dhak. Sri Gokul Das & his team are the Dhakis who bring us the beautiful rhythm of Durga Puja to the ears of the devotees.

  This year Ahiritola takes us to Jule Verne’s world where Mother Durga will meet us under the sea at Ahiritola.
It submerged us in the life of the living under the sea celebrating the durga puja. We experience the beauty of corals and the animals of sea. The ship wreck under the sea took us to the world of sea pirates and the fierce fight with the fate of losing and ending at the sea bed.
Amonst all these, we see maa durga fighting against the evil to bring peace to the world.
