This year Uttar Mallaguri Sarbajanin Durga Puja Committee will be celebrating its 31st year of Durga Puja said the Puja President, Lal Chand Oraon. The Puja Secretary, Abhijit Kumar Ray informed us that this year’s puja theme is based on Rabindranath Tagore’s famous poem, “Tomar hridey majhar rakhbo, chede debona…”(I will keep you in my heart, never let you go).
The club’s pandal is very artistic and beautiful. 160ft length by 50ft height fully decorative artistic wall with back lighting art and effects is has been made. Fibre and iron-frame have been used to erect the wall. The pandal’s front side is facing a wide garden of 10000sq ft with a fountain enhancing its beauty. Various captions are made in the garden boundary regarding society, traffic, women torture, corruption, addiction, wildlife, environment etc.
Asian paint, flat iron, thermocol, plywood has been used for making the pandal. A sea beach is being set up in a 5,000 sq ft area.An open oyster shell measuring 400 sq ft will be installed at the ‘beach’ where the idol of goddess Durga will be placed. The idea is to portray the emergence of a good spirit amid global violence and destruction for guiding people towards the path of fraternity and harmony.
The idol of Goddess Durga has been bought from artist Adhir Paul from Siliguri’s Kumartoli.
The Jatiya Shakti Sangha is among the big-budget puja organizers in North Bengal. Committee members informed this year’s budget is expected to surpass Rs.25 lakh.
The club will engage itself in social service during the pujas by distributing books and clothes to the poor and the needy.
