‘This year we, the members of GOABAGAN SARBOJANIN DURGOTSAB SAMITY, like the last 79 years, is fully geared-up to commemorate our 80th.year of Durga Puja.
This puja, held at CIT Park on Sahitya Parishad Street, is one of the oldest and most revered Pujas of North Kolkata as well as Kolkata as a whole.
We have been honoured with many laurels in the past years. Gaobagan Sarbojanin had the privilege of getting patronized by Netaji Shubhash Chandra Bose, Acharya Prafulla Chandra Ray and Scientist Satyen Bose to name a few.
This year our inspiration is drawn from the oldest and the most creative art of Bengal – Mritshilpo. This is an omnipresent form of art and living medium found all over Bengal in every village and town in different formats. This form of art has taken creative art of Bengal to many international forums and particularly Ghurni in Krishnanagar and Panchmura in Bakura is world famous for their creative excellence.
We have named the whole creative presentation stretched over 4000 sq. ft as “MATIR-TAAN” which will be mainly constructed with Bamboo poles, bamboo thatched sheets and more than 100 forms of earthen utilities and earthen creative figurines.
The entire theme has been conceptualized by our club members jointly named as “Amra Sobai” and will be executed with the help of artisans from Bakura, Krishnanagar, Purba Midnapur and South 24 Parganas.
