Mahatirtham Presenting “Let’s make PLASTIC our FRIEND from FOE… by the word REUSE!!”

Global Warming has been a dangerous peril for mankind. Over the year, continuous release of green house gases in the atmosphere has created panic among us. Every possible measure is being taken to stop pollution of surroundings. Among various measures, creating awareness as regard to its adverse impact has been placed on the top. Last year, Mahatirtham Durgotsab’s theme was based on eradication of pollution from atmosphere by using natural made things. Last year, they had used solar plates in their puja pandal to create awareness that instead of relying on electricity which releases huge amount of smoke in the atmosphere, we should start depending on solar energy for electricity. This year too they are coming up with the similar concept i.e “Let’s make PLASTIC our FRIEND from FOE… by the word REUSE!! Plastic made bags are thrown here and there senselessly. These bags choked the drains and stop release of wastage water inside the drain. The stagnant water creates problem for the passer byes. The only way to get rid of it is reuse or recycling of the used plastic bags.

Last year Mahatirtham Durgotsab had received many awards, the noteworthy are CESC, The Telegraph – Puja That Cares 2012, WB Govt. Nirmal Puja – Seera Shakti 2012, Tiljala Thana Samonnoi committe – 1st, Star Ananda – Best Jury Award 2012, 94.3 fm – Eco Freindly Puja – 1st, Jodhpur Park Vision Makers – Special Award, Banchbo Sharad Samman 2012 – 3rd.

They have been celebrating durga puja since 1986. Concentration of huge crowd in the puja pandal is always an exciting matter for them. Over the year, they have gained much popularity and appreciation.

In 2013 their theme is “WATER IS LIFE“.

Life cannot exist without water. Going back to the time when the civilization began, we would find that every civilization grew and progressed around rivers, lakes, streams etc. Even today, lives are settled around water. So, water is such a precious gift of nature without which existence cannot be thought. But for some material greediness, the sources of water such as oceans, seas, rivers, lakes, ponds, streams are being constantly destroyed. As a result, less water is available for irrigation which in turn effecting the cultivation. Aquatic lives are in danger. Trees by the side of the ponds, lakes are being cut and birds are losing their residence. Also, global temperature has risen over the years, leaving for us improper surrounding to breath in.

Dum Dum Park Tarun Sangha is praying to goddess durga that she should awaken the conscience of the people so that they should not destroy this important source of existence.

Mr. Joy Sengupta, Mr. Prithwish Roy and Mr. Bipul Saha, the Secretaries and the President Mr. Lakhanlal Das of Dum Dum Park Tarun Sangha Puja Committee. They have budgeted this year’s cost for puja which stands around Rs 20,00,000/-.
