Netaji Play Forum, Agartala’s Durga Puja Theme is Santhal Revolution; 60 Feet Goddess Made in its 60th Year



Netaji Play Forum of Agartala, Tripura will be showcasing Santhal Revolution in this year’s Durga Puja. In its 60th year, the deity will be inaugurated by an eminent individual representing the Santhal Community. This has been planned so as to honour the contributions of this community and make the people aware about their works.

Anup Bose, President, Debasish Saha, Secretary, Bishwajit Sutradhar, Corporate Communicator and Ashim Debroy (theme maker) was present to address the press.

Santhal heroes, Sidhu and Kanu devoted their lives fighting against the British. The Santhal community have tremendous contribution towards enriching the culture and heritage of India. This is what made the organizers to opt for this theme for this year’s Puja. An exhibition on santhals will be on display.

Since this is their sixtieth year, the Durga idol will be of sixty feet height. This is an added attraction for the pandal hoppers.

With Durga Puja just round the corner, puja committees are all gearing up to welcome the Goddess in style.
