Mangaldeep – the burning lamp in Rathkhola Sporting Club this Durga Puja


Rathkhola Sporting Club will be celebrating its 48 years of Durga Puja and on this auspicious occasion they have named the theme auspiciously calling it ‘Mangaldeep’,i.e. pure, divine light burning in the name of God. The pandal will be a huge shining one just like a huge ‘deep’ burning, told the Puja President, Subhaas Bhowal.

The club’s theme is based on a research work done by its team. According to NASA report, the Maya calender has gone over in 2012 itself as 1912. And it is solely due to this reason that people are scared about the Earth finishing its life. We have already witnessed the disaster that have come in Siliguri and the nearby and far-away places. So, its like the people are praying to Goddess Durga to save them from any disaster and epidemic.

Praying to goddess is something like ‘yagyapratisthan’, lighting ‘deep’ to worship the heavenly goddess, hence the name ‘mangaldeep’. At the entrance we will find a huge ‘shivalinga’ along with the idol of Goddess Durga.

The pandal is being made of ply, choate, bamboo planks, jute, ice-cream spoons, bamboo handicrafts, colored paper etc. The decoration is being done by the famous Shyamal Sarkar of Siliguri. The pandal will be sorrounded with water on all sides for fire safety.

The pandal will have 5 ways for entrance and 4 ways for exit. Free parking lot will be provided by the club along with drinking water and first-aid arrangements and so on. Children will be provided with a card with their name, phone number and address in it.
