Introduction

The time has come to celebrate the biggest festival of Bengalis. The celebration of Ma Durga. Your Executive Committee is happy to inform you that we will continue our tradition of celebrating Durga Puja this year.
“Durga Puja” – the festival marks the victory of goddess Durga in her battle against the shape-shifting asura, Mahishasura.
