HISTORY

The puja today in Kolkata people like to reside in Housing Complexes, Apartments or Enclaves. These Housing complexes consist of different blocks consisting of numerous flats. The housing complexes provide many amenities to their residents. The Complexes in Kolkata organizes Durga Puja festival at large scale. The residents of all streams of religion and caste become united to put their common endeavor to make the Puja a big success. The Puja is organized by collecting funds from the residents of that particular Apartment. In 18th Century it became popular. The Zamindar families of the city are quietly carrying on with their traditions, some of which started hundreds of years ago. By mid of 18th Century, the national festival of the Bengalis became an occasion for the rich Babus of Kolkata to flaunt their wealth. It became a religious splurge among the Babu's of Bengal, to measure the supremacy of one over the other. Guptipara in Hoogly was the first place in Bengal where the idea of "Baroyari" or "Sarbojanin" puja was conceived in the year 1790.
