Puja Type :   BAROARI
South Kolkata
Year of initiation  1988  
Website :



The Baishnab Ghata Patuli Upanogori Sarbojonin Durgautsav Committee was formed in the year 1988. The Puja also started in the same year. At that time the local residents were sparsely populated. But at the initiation of local residents they decided to organize the autumn festival. The Durga Puja started of in a small manner with the participation of the local residents. The families staying were scattered and sparsely populated. Due to scattered existence of the families, local residents requested to shift to more centralized position in the areas. For happiness of all the Puja shifted to a small field, more centralized. Due to fast growth the area started receiving new & more families. The field where the current Puja shifted needed to sacrifice due to growth of the skyscrapers. By them a field was identified and denoted to the Patuli Nagarik Committee to organize sports, cultural activities. From then to till date the Puja is being organized at Nagarik Sammilani field (more popularly known as Melar Math). The Puja of these 11 blocks of west Patuli have grown in folds in terms of response from the devotees and also in terms of different offer to the visitors & devotees. The committee have also have been very active in social obligations. They believe that need to contribute in different manners to the society. They have done it by donating the Chief Ministerís relief fund. On Dasami they have a custom to share cloths & other materials to the needy & poor people and thus spreading the goodness to large masses to make people release the true meaning worshiping Mother Durga.

2010 Theme : Shilper jadu banglar banshee bodho monestry kolkonai vashe
  This year the idea is to spread peace. In this message they encourage larger masses to appeal for peace and thus avoiding & refusing the path of violence. Buddhism as a religion have been always campaigner to self resilience and peace for mankind. This year they share the influence the Buddhism in Hinduism in the from of their teaching, art & culture.

Due to spread of Buddhism in the many southeastern countries, as fusion culture and art form of Hindu & Buddhism. They represent a fusion of a Hindu & Buddhist architectural piece of art in the form of a mandir. We see similar types of beautiful mandir in different southern eastern countries. They again go back to nature to create this architecture by using bamboo from Bengal to create the intricate designs of the art form. It gives us a beautiful representation of Buddhist monastery and we also see mother durga dressed in similar form.

  This year the Puja committee highlighted Madhubani painting in the backdrop of a village of West Bengal.
The pandal was made in the form of Aat Chala (8 roofs), the depiction of the village hut. The roofs were made of the galvanized tin beautifully coloured. The main decoration the main pandal was done was with Madhubani paintings were done on both sides of the walls of the hut. The hut stood over the structure of the bamboos, which were also beautifully wrapped by Namabolis (scripts of religious books) to create the ambience of Amdhubani Paintings. Madhubani paintings were done with different colours to share the stories of India Epics. The paintings shared its stories of the one of the most beautiful folk art form. To exchange the beauty of ambience and the tradition of our culture, the idol was done in the traditional form, which gave the flavour of Bagbazar Protima.

Once the devotee entered the pandal they faced each Trantra of Panchatantra in each turn. They were presently surprised with a new a story being depicted by beautifully done model made of clay & Plaster of Paris. Each of the five Tantra was depicted by the story from Panchatantra : Budhi, Dorjo, Gyan, Dombo, Sanjam.

The use of different materials from nature in such a manner that its natural colour created separate feel & ambience by itself. The roof were beautifully coloured and decorate to enhance the beauty of the pandal. The pandals had 8 roof (Chal) was done in asymmetric manner and in different angles. The use of leaves like Talpata, Hogla Pata, Skin of Bettle nut tree and earthen tiles (Tali) were used to create different forms of roofs.
The backdrop of the position where idol of mother Durga was kept was made by the Hoglapata and skin of datesí trees. It added a beautiful ambience to the idol of mother goddess which was created of clay.
