Now a days every mind has its own preferences and choices. Theme Pujas doesn't mean that they're bad. Somebody believe theme puja's atmosphere is not ideal for devotion. But there are other spaces for those purposes. What about the arts and crafts on display in most pandals these days? Sometime they're reathtaking. The camaraderie and articipation of old-time para Pujas have been replaced by a new bonhomie at the Pujas in housing estates. All four days are spent eating, chatting and sharing time together. The children make themselves busy with various types of cultural programmes like skits, competitions, games and these foster new friendships. This is the new barir pujo now. This is the way how HB Block, Salt Lake has been celebrating Durga Pujo since 26th years. They mix art with tradition, they blend hues with the designs, they jumble sense with the presence of mind. This year HB Block, Salt Lake will come up with the presentation of Rajasthaani Art and Culture. We all are very familiar with Rajathani Art and in my view its awesome.

You are cordially invited to come down to HB Block, Salt Lake to see how the theme maker Shri. Gopal Kar has skatch his thought in Rajasthani ethnicity. The entire block is illuminated with fascinating artwork.

During the durga puja our pulses are high with thoughts of homecoming, happy reunions with the dearest and nearest one, the beat of drums thud across the twilit skyline releasing a fresh boost of life. Everyone tries to forget about their personal clash atleast for the four days of durgapuja. Sweet smell of flowers and incense sticks fill the atmophere in all the community pandals. Prasad distributed after the daily rituals with the dhyang-kur-kur beatings of the dhak and 'pujor gaan' make us feel bengalee. Various cultural programmes are organized. Breaking the hurdles of age the participation is unanimous. The speciality of HB Block pujo is "PONGTI BHOJ". On Saptami, Ashtami and Navami, all the people of Abasan unite and have their lunch and dinner togather. 

Pandel decortion has been done by Sree krishna Decorators and your eyes will really get a treat as the lighting has been done by Subhas Electric from Chandannagar.
