Dashami in New Town

As planned, a little while ago, we had the pre-immersion congregation of several Durga Pujas of New Town Kolkata. The trucks were so arranged as to keep the face of the protimas towards the dais where Justice Asim K Banerjee, MLA Sabyasachi Datta, A.K.Raha, A.K.Patnaik. Gopal Ghosh, Sutanu Kar, P Sen and others, besides me, were present. After an initial group Dhak performance, each Puja Committee had an exclusive opportunity to do a dhak-based dance. There was a great air of enthusiasm. We could do a better synchronization next year, but I think a great start was made today.
Here is a link to a video that I took on my pocket Kodak video:

  1. It's been 6 months since we had a residents' meet at NewTown. Could we have another one (duly advertised)? It would be great to have a medium to channel our concerns/ expectations/ appreciations.
