With Durga Puja about a month and half away, the Puja preparations have started all over the city. Khuti Pujas are being organized by the Puja Committees, which mark the beginning of the Kolkata Durga Puja. Tridhara Sammilani, one of the well known Pujas in the city recently had their Khuti puja ceremony. Present at the ceremony were actor Soham, the beautiful Tumi Je Amar host, actress Rachana Banerjee, actress Gargi Roy Chowdhury, Ramdhanu Director Shiboprasad Mukherjee, MLA Subrata Mukherjee and Devasish Kumar.
Tridhara Sammilani club was formed in the year 1947. This is of great significance as this was the year India gained independence. During the initial years, the club had only fifteen to twenty members. The puja was also done quietly and in a homely manner. However with the passing of time, the number of members increased in the club and the present number is three hundred.
Cast members of the recently released film Ramdhanu, Rachana Banerjee and Gargi Roy Chowdhury cast a pretty picture at the event. “The khuti puja marks the beginning of the Durga Puja festival. I am excited to know what will be the theme of Tridhara this year. This Durga Puja committee has been coming up with new and exciting concepts every year. What they have to offer this year is what I am excited to know” said actress Rachana Banerjee.
Tridhara Sammilani will be celebrating its 66th year Puja this year. The devotees can surely expect some mind blowing concept from the Durga Puja committee which has been showcasing such great themes every year.
