Gariahat West Road Durgotsav Committee will be enthralling the visitors by presenting a slice of life from Nagaland during Durga Puja 2014. A Naga tribal village will be the theme of the Durga Puja committee. The Naga culture is so rich yet it is not very explored by the people. Utsaber Deshe Nagaland is the theme of this Durga Puja Committee this year.
While speaking to Sholoana Bangaliana Puja President Bandana Ray said, “One of the most striking features of our Durga Puja Committee is that all the members are women. We also aim to bring something new for the people which they can treasure. The reason why we selected Nagaland is due to the fact that the land is rich in culture and festivals. Won’t it be a nice experience to transport a slice of their culture for the biggest festival of our State? There will be tribal dancers from Nagaland who perform during the Hornbill Festival”.
Chief Patron of the Puja dancer- actor Mamata Shankar said, “This is a very closely knit puja. This is one Sarbojonin Puja in the true sense of the term with the entire locality participating whole heartedly in the preparations. There may not be too much grandeur but the efforts are sincere. Moreover during the five days of the puja there will be engaging cultural programs too”.
Gariahat West Road Dugotsav is one pandal which must feature on your must watch list during the Upcoming Durga Puja.
