Shubho Bijoya 2013

In the new Ghat in Action Area ID, there was an air of gaiety and festivity right from 3pm yesterday till 10pm or so. As darkness descended from 5 pm onwards, the crowd, dhak, dance and immersions gathered momentum. The 12 professional persons brought in took the images at the ghat and immersed in water: the precaution intended to avoid drowning hazards.
When 4-5 groups were peforming together, there was a crescendo of joy and merriment under the white light of the six high mast metal halides, The viewing gallery was also a great success. Police were deployed in numbers to ensure traffic flow and ensure that the flow continued.
Many organizers met me at the dais and expressed their satisfaction at the arrangements.
In all, 69 protimas were immersed on Dashami day. Of these, 47 were New Town Pujas while 22 were from adjoining areas of Salt Lake, Rajarhat, Mahisbatan, Jatragach etc.
Here is a link ofa short video that I just uploaded on You Tube>

Yesterday at New Town Ghat: around 8pm or so

  1. Debashis da,

    The arrangements were very good. Last year at the same place, we did a bisarjan by putting on the car headlight. This year, right from the ghat to the traffic control, everything was well managed. It felt really good.

    Subho Bijoya.
