V.I.P ENCLAVE Durga Puja - ‘Devi Boron’

“Jago tumi Jago Jago durga Jago dasha praharana Dharini
Abhaya shakti bhalo pradayini tumi jago”

The clear azure sky of ‘Sharat’, the twist of the white ‘kash phool’, the beautiful fragrance of ‘shiuli, the rhythm of ‘dhak’, the melody of conch shell all come with a common ‘tug’ at every ‘Bengali’s’ heart. What time is it? It is the time for ‘Devi Bandana’. It is the time of ‘Agamani’. Its time for ‘Devi Boron’! It is the time for the greatest festival in Bengal- Durga Puja. It is for this time that we all wait all over the year.

To do justice to this festive spirit, VIP Enclave, a North Kolkata ‘Para Puja’ is all set to ignite their charm on its 17th year of Durga puja. Like every year, this year too the ‘mandap’ will be decorated in a traditional wear to mark the rich cultural heritage of Bengal. Pouring rain and thundering skies could not stop the artisans to light up the true spirit of Durga Puja. You will be amazed by the artist’s creation of idols and mandap and their dedication and perseverance.

The specialty of this ‘Para Puja’ is their ‘UNITY’ amongst the families working hand in hand to make the puja a successful one.
