Pally Unnayan Samity - Rajasthani flavor in Durgotsav

Catch the glimpse of Durgostsav through the lenses of Women Strength in Pally Unnayan Samity. It is the celebration of the ten-armed goddess of fertility who defeated the buffalo-demon ‘Mahishasura’. In a way it is the incarnation of the women power that diminishes the ‘asuras’ in form of ‘Durga Durgatinashini’. The tale says that with the boon granted on Mahishashura, it was almost impossible to defeat the demon. No male could defeat him only the birth of ‘women power’ in the form of Ma Durga could end the reign of Mahishashura’s terror.

History of Club/ Puja
:   The women of the Pally Unnayan Samity play a major role in celebrating the Durga Puja. The history says that in the year 2005 when the former Governor Shri. Gopal Krishna Gandhi visited this club he was awestruck by their creation of the ‘madap’ and idol. During that festive moment, an exhibition was organized from where the Governor bought a “Gal Putul”(a puppet made of with Gala). It was almost a blessing in disguise for the Samity.
Theme of 2010
: In the year 1954, this year Pally Unnayan Samity of Paschim Putiary will be celebrating its 56th year in a prosperous way. Their theme is exceptionally a traditional one, where visitors will be amazed to see the glorious art of Indian rural art and craft to decorate its pandal. Shri. Prashanta Pal has evaluated the whole presentation of the mandap. He always had a thought in his mind to popularize the age old traditional art and craft of India in this process. This time the theme is all about the Durga Puja celebration of the Rajasthani wood Puppet player Community.  Designed in Rajasthani flavors, and making the idols look like puppets, is a great idea thought by the master. I am sure you will be simply stunned with this innovative idea of celebrating Durgotsav.

Day of Inauguration: ‘chaturthi’/11th of October 2010 have been decided for the day of inauguration. You will be surprised to know that the Puja Committee is looking forward to inaugurate their puja by those creative hands that give birth to innovative and artistic things. They are none other than the ‘workers’ of the Pally Unnayan Samity puja. Isn’t that a brilliant idea?
