I held a residents' meet for New Town yesterday. We discussed about (a) Puja matters and (b) Mela & Cultural Matters.
We informed that a panel of judges would go around the 43 odd puja pandals of New Town and rank them. The prizes would be given on Bijoya Sanmelani days of 26-27 Oct at New Town Mela Ground Stage. At the stage, each community puja would be given a 15-minute slot for showcasing their best cultural performances made during the pujas. The organiser themselves would select whom to showcase in the wider platform.
Immersion would take place in the new Ghat near Tata Medical Centre. The Ghat would be inaugurated today by Minister Firhad Hakim (see earlier post for pic). The preferred timings for immersion would be 3pm- 9pm, we decided.
