We Bengalis have a special place in our heart for the magnificent festival, that is, Durga Puja. A celebration of devotion, culture, heritage, delicacies and merry making, this is something, that we await all year long.
As the present day decorum breaks down in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are forced to alter our ways to prevent the spread of this deadly virus.
Like last year, this year too, Durga Puja will take place at the basement of your Kalibari from 11.10.21 (as per the current plan).
New modalities confirming the sanitization and social distancing norms: Only the priests, their helpers, camera crew and a few office bearers/volunteers shall have the access to the basement during rituals.
Restricted entry of devotees will be allowed after the rituals till the curfew timings.
Outdoor events/programs have been abandoned under the prevailing circumstances.
All sponsors shall get MOOL-BHOG, prepared and packed under sanitized conditions, delivered at their residence. Last year, we received praise for the way we were able to manage the distribution of food despite the odds.
The puja rituals will be broadcasted. We will be doing E-pushpanjali like last year.
Devotees are requested to send their donations by bank transfer or by cheques into the drop box kept at Kalibari.
Please note that above modalities are subject to change without prior notice.
In case the present scenario along with government policies change and we are able to book the ground, then puja will take place in the ground.
You are requested to follow subsequent postings for any changes in the plan.
