Kumartuly defines tradition. Comprising of no ordinary potters, contrary to what the name depicts, this quarter of Kolkata has a rich history of art carved in its existence. Among the deepest lessons of life that a son inherits from his father in Kumartuly, preserving and promoting the culture of idol making holds prime importance. Therefore, Durga Puja features to be a significant event in the financial calendar of the entire area. Transaction of a million happens in moment’s time which is further used by various associations to host Durga Puja in their patent style in this area since pre independence years.
One such heritage institution happens to be Kumartuly Sarbojanin Durgatsav. Breaking the cliché of Ek Chala(one structure) Durga idol, the credit of creating the first multiple structure idol goes in our favour. Another accomplishment is the fame that we shared for being pioneers of theme based Puja. Besides venturing into state of the art artistic endeavours, our organization has also worked in association with notable luminaries like Subhash Chandra Bose who was the president of Kumartuly Sarbojanin’s organizing committee in 1938.
Like every year, this season Kumartuly is all set to celebrate the auspicious occasion with a touch of togetherness, for which we are appealing for your heartfelt support. The specific event that requires your contribution is Bhog Bitoron(distribution) for all three days of Durga Puja- Saptami, Astami and Nabami when the festive spirits are on a high. We aim at sharing Maa’s blessing each day of immense mythological significance by providing Bhog to every human being who steps into her altar, irrespective of status or background.
These three days signify Maa Durga’s potential to wipe off the darkness cast by evil forces with her might, and usher an age of hope, fulfillment and victory over malice. Only the fortunate gets the taste of Maa’s blessings through a portion of the afternoon delicacy post the completion of Bhog Arati(offering obeisance through specially prepared food). This year we intend to increase the coverage of the people that we cater Bhog to, each year. So, your help is an imperative to give shape to our noble attempt.
