This year Ballygunj Cultural, South Kolata will be commemorating their 60th Diamond Jubilee celebrations of Durga Puja in a grand way. They are almost on their toes to inaugurate their puja by the dashing, glamorous and gorgeous Film star Bidya Balan. You will be besieged to know that the famous film director Mr. Sujit Ghosh will shoot this particular puja for his upcoming film.

Ballygunj Cultural Club does not work predominantly on themes but they have a knack towards working on traditional rituals. They feel that the best way to tug to every heart is in through traditional ways and they are Dhunuchi nach along with the rhythm of ‘Dhak’, shondhya aarati on a great scale, tuning into the conch shell and so on. The creative head behind making the idol is Shri. Pradip Rudra Pal, the youngest son of Shri.Mohan Banshi Rudra Pal. The idea behind making the ‘pandal’ is striking enough but very simple. Organizers of this club thought of crafting the ‘pandal’ with an imaginary sense of execution. The maker, Shri.Goutam Ghosh has started working hard on it to present before you something fresh and creative.

Ballygunj Cultural is one of the most prestigious clubs in South Kolkata that set off with lots of cultural and social programs through out the year.  They organize Blood donation camps, Distributes blankets to the poor during winter, health check up, financial help to the poor and so on.
