Acharya Prafulla Sangha

Acharya Prafulla Sangha is 53 years old puja. Secretary Soumya basu informed with an interview with durgapujaonline.com, “We have planned to celebrate our 53rd year of Durga Puja in a grand way. This year our theme is ‘Bansh Putuler Khelaghar Duggamayer bari Ghar’. We will like to pay tribute to the great versatile Shri Rabindranath Tagore on his 150 years birth anniversary along with Shri Prafulla Roy in whose name our club has been christened.”

Different art forms of very common ‘Sahaj Path’ will be displayed across the pandal that will be created by coconut / palm trunks by these artisans. The pandal will be decorated by traditional and colourful ‘Rajasthani Dolls’ to add to the fun and enjoyment of the kids and thousand of pandel toddlers. Just like previous three years, the club will like to bring certain art forms and the artisans who are fighting for existence to limelight. Acharya Prafulla Sangha is committed to helping out these artisans – however small may be the contribution but it is an effort in the right direction. “As we celebrate Durga Puja in our locality, in our hearts we would know that handful of families of our artisans, somewhere in rural areas is celebrating too. That is the reward we pine to earn every year” shared one of the members.

About the club: Every year the club does something new. In the year 2007 the club brought together bamboos of Kokrajhar and Chhau of Purulia. It was our effort to bring forth two unique creations – one by nature, and the other developed by man – both tottering on the verge of extinction. Continuing the legacy to celebrate the Durga Puja in a grand way, their endeavor in 2008 & 2009 was to bring forward art forms that are struggling for existence.

Continuing with the same thread of thought – Acharya Prafulla Sangha carried out different activities to further enhance the bonding among its people with an eye towards serving the society. Every year they organize Bijoya Sammilani, Sit-and-draw, annual picnic, Blood Donation Camp, Children Class, etc.
