It’s a primitive belief that the flowering of waving Kaash indicates the rains are over and the autumn has begun. It’s a time for good hope. The bright and breezy mornings, silky sunshine, mild smell of shiuli flowers make us feel that the durga Puja 2010 countdown has begun! This year BJ blok, Salt lake is going to adore our beloved Kobiguru Rabindranath during the celebration of Durga Puja.The three best will be mingled with each other and these are
Autumn: the best season of Bengal,
Durga puja: the best festival of Bengal and
Rabindranath: the best of the bests.
The theme catchline is:
"Rabindra aaloke udvasito, BJ blocker Sharod nibedan.......Tomaar pujaar chhale"
Tagore’s short tale Kabuliwallah concludes right in the middle of autumn—saratkaal. Mini’s marriage takes place during the puja holidays, and Rahman’s own daughter awaits her father’s return in her distant mountain home. The essence of Kabuliwallah lies in basking in such an aura of human generosity.
The presentation will surely enchant our feelings. The overall decoration will be fabulous. The series of Taal Gachh (Palm Tree) will be on the bank of the Kopaai River. The wall will be decorated with artistic relief work by the Artists coming from Santhal Parganas.
