Durga Puja at Durga Bari - Bringing Bengal To Bayou City

Executive Board welcomes you, your family and friends to the Puja season at Durga Bari, your home away from home. Half a world away, we celebrate Pujas here in Houston with festivities, fun and food, which reminds us of home.

Viswakarma Puja has already been celebrated on Sunday, September 22nd, which started off our Puja calendar with ceremonial kite-flying and a sumptuous lunch.

Starting Sunday October 6th, we will have Mahalaya Puja and program, Ananda Mela (a feast of Bengali culinary delicacies) and a great concert by Sayak Bandopadhyay. With a lineup of Jayati Chakrabarti - a Rabindrasangeet exponent, Anupam Roy - who is rocking the Bengali modern songs genre, and Jasraj Joshi - a true Bollywood talent, we have a power-packed lineup to entertain you. We also assure you that our Puja will  not let you miss India; we will recreate Bengal in Bayou City.

Pujas bring all of us together, when we forget our differences - hence, we sincerely request you to enjoy together, as a community, as an extended family and be united in our celebration. Thanks to the dedicated volunteers who are putting in hours of service, support from you, we hope to continue the tradition of Durga Bari and deliver yet another unforgettable Puja.

This year's theme is "Unity through Respect". Please come to Durga Bari, enjoy and seek Maa Durga's blessings for health, happiness and prosperity.
