Default Bangalore Durga Puja 2009

This time, since we could not be in Kolkata for the Durga Pujas, we made the best of it by covering almost all Pujas in Bangalore.

Saptami: Cambridge Layout, Koramangla and Ulsoor.

Rocker was down with the after-effects of "over eating" and "over fueling" everyday (Saptami-Dashami ). on top of that i had to take out ETC for pandal hopping at odd hours in the morning (6AM~8AM). I didn't click any pics. i will upload the ones shot by my brother.

Ever since I moved on from Ananda Bazar Patrika I miss out on these Pujas. May be time for me to go back to my Bengali friends and make a trip to one of the Pandals in Chennai. I just realised that Bangalore now has almost 30 Pandals, great stuff. Late nineties there used to be only 3, Ulsoor, Jaya Mahal & Malleswaram, similarly Chennai used to have in T. Nagar, Besant Nagar & Meenambakkam. Credit to the Bengalis who have not lost any opportunity to relive their roots.

I actually used to work there, we used to put up kiosks for selling our subscriptions. No way I could read & write Bengali, though after about almost 9 years working there I can understand Bengali quite a bit though I cannot speak. I used to love the kichadi which used to get served during the Puja days.

MC, THanks for sharing the Hyderabad Bengali Samiti puja. Hope to see the Keyes High School Puja as well.
I have lots of fond memories of HBS puja - specially meeting Azharuddin in 1991 (Golden jublee of HBS puja).
