Uttaran, Western Sydney
The Puja commences at 9am and the association provides all meals free of charge to all attendees throughout the day. The Prasad distribution is followed by a delicious lunch and a hearty dinner is also provided in the evening. Donations are accepted throughout the day and the generous support of the community allows the club to make charitable donations to help those less fortunate and continue holding t Pueja each year. In recent years they have provided financial assistance to a poor family in Kolkata for their child's heart surgery and to children's orphanages in India.
Activities throughout the day include a drawing competition for the young children and an evening entertainment program of Bengali, Bollywood and contemporary Singing, Instrumental and Dancing performances. The performers include young children and adults in a show that appeals to all ages and it is a highlight of the Bengali social calendar each year.
The Western Sydney Uttaran Durga Puja has been promoted worldwide and has received extensive news coverage over the years in print and electronic media. A documentary was made in 2007 and shown on a Community TV channel highlighting the Puja activities through the day and included interviews with committee members. News articles were published in newspapers worldwide and the Puja has been recognised by the Worldwide Puja Competition through www.kolkatamirror.com and other similar competitions.
