ITS A CHINESE TREAT FOR KOLKATA- AHIRITOLA SARBOJONIN DURGA PUJA 2012









A seventy three year old North Kolkata Puja whose name arouses feelings of devotion and sanctity in our mind is Ahiritola Sarbojonin which has a heritage and is undoubtedly the pride of Kolkata-r Durga Puja . Apart from being a characteristic traditional Puja, Ahiritola has received acclamation and applause in organizing theme based DurgaPujas. Dulal Sil, the secretary of Ahiritola Sarbojonin in a conversation with www.durgapujaonline.com disclose Durga Puja 2012 theme- '' International Peace '', an idea implemented by Prosanto Pal that targets at bringing an integration between Durga Puja , the biggest festival of the Bengalees with a festival of China that is almost analogous to Durga Puja in its fervour and  magnitude among the Chinese.

Well its about Durga Puja and the Chinese Dragon Festival under one roof, Ahiritola Sarbojonin Durga Puja 2012. It is a typically Chinese festival when teams of lions, ghosts with huge white faces, dragons and some extraordinarily noisy drummers go to every Chinese business to bring good luck for the coming year. Thousands of crackers are set off to herald good fortune and toward off evil spirits. This is almost a reflection of our Durga Puja where we have Dhakis beating the Dhaks loudly and announcing Ma Durga's arrival and her glorious presence amidst us.

Ma Durga is also the harbinger of peace and good fortune. Yes friends we can fathom your excitement to eye- witness Indo- China cultural bonding in our occasion for jubilation. Thus Durga Puja 2012 is a platform to strengthen  international relation between two neighbouring countries . What our enthusiasm driven pandal hoppers need to do is to reach Sovabazar metro station and look for Ahiritola Shiv Mandir where from Tritiya evening Indian and Chinese Festivities shall start with full gusto.
