Inspired by the ideology of the freedom movement, HOWRAH SEVA SANGHA was organized and established by the some bold hearted young “SWADESHI” in the year 1923 to inculcate and inoculate patriotism among young men and women. Durga Puja, the oldest Sarbojonin Puja started in the year 1927. Since the organization was banned by the British Govt. Durgapuja could not be organized in the years 1942-1944.

Discarding the present trend of gorgeous decorations and experiments with the shape and form of image, the organization has been able to stick to its old values and cultural heritage, worships the same form of traditional earthen image. Club members themselves decorate the Puja compound.

Durga Puja of our organization has earned not only popularity but been accepted as a dignified one. The main attraction of this Puja is the ARATI during NAVAMI. The total duration of ARATI is of 2 hours.

It was the instruction from Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose to Late Harendra Nath Ghosh, freedom fighter & Youth leader of pre-independence period, to start Sarbojanin Durga Puja at Howrah, inspiring from Bagbazar. From that begining day of Puja the place changed many times but the idol of Pratima is the same for last 82 years & it is the First Sarbojanin Durga Puja at Howrah, according to Municipal Gazette, 1946.

The idol of Pratima previously made by Late Pravash Chandra Pal & Gour Pal of Kumortolly & presently by Dilip Ram of Howrah.

President award winner Late Rabin Malakar decorated the "Solar Saj" of Pratima for long times & presently by his maternal brother Jhantu Malakar of Katoa.

Members are observed like independence period "Birastami Brata" on the day of Astimi of Puja through Physical Activities.

Sangha have awarded by Administration many times Best Puja in Howrah.

On the day of Lakshmi Puja "Baby Show" competition held for last 35 years.
