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/-.

As an online media partner of Dum Dum Park Tarun Sangha, we About Kolkata Team wishes them that Maa Durga should fulfill their pray.

In their 45th year, they are coming up with an important message to the world through their puja pandal. This year, their theme is about “GLOBAL WARMING and Its Effect on Earth”.

Ozone layer of earth’s atmosphere, which acts as a protective blanket against ultraviolet rays of the sun, is getting deteriorated day by day due to continuous emission of greenhouse gases and deforestation. The average temperatures of the earth’s atmosphere and oceans have risen since late 19th century. The effects of an increase in global temperature include a rise in sea levels, change in amount and pattern of precipitation, retreat glacier, permafrost, and sea ice, more frequent occurrence of extreme weather events such as heat waves, ocean acidification, species extinction, and loss of habitat from inundation.

If we do not stop emission of greenhouse gases and senseless cutting of trees, we are not far away from time when all the creatures will extinct. Haridevpur Adarsha Samity spreading the message from their 2013 event.

For 2013, their puja budget is around 5 lacs as informed by Mr. Ujjal Chakraborty.

During our Parikrama, we have also covered those puja pandals which are not so well known but this year, their outstanding pandals and excellent themes have made them, in no way, less than the popular puja pandals. Mention should be made about Mahatirtham Citizen Forum, Hussainpur Kishore Sanga, No: 2 Adi Barwari Puja, Chetla Agrani etc.

Some of the puja pandals prohibited taking snaps of their pandals and idols on ground of their personal circumstances. So, we could not add photos of those puja pandals in our gallery.

Durga Puja Parikrama Presented by About Kolkata Team

The city of Kolkata is presently plunged into the atmosphere of Durga puja. The fragrance of seuli phool can be felt everywhere. Chandi path has been started since Mahalaya. Mahalaya represents the beginning of devi paksha and end of pitri paksha. In some places, this festival is celebrated as Navaratri. Maa durga is the destroyer of Mahishasura — the buffalo headed demon. Puja start from Sasthi, the sixth day from Mahalaya. Bodhon, Amontron and Adibas are the important rituals of Sasthi. Saptami comes from the day after Sasthi, predawn bathing of ‘Kola Bou’ and Mahasnan are part of this day. The day after Saptami, Ashtami will come. Devotees recite the mantras and offer flowers to Devi Durga for pushpanjali and pray for her blessings. The main Ashtami puja and the Sandhi Puja are performed. After the Sandhi puja starts the Nabami Puja. The main Nabami puja take place on this propitious day. The festival ends on Vijayadashmi which marks the end of evils and emergence of goodness and bliss. Astrologically also this day is considered auspicious to undertake any new venture.
