Durga Puja Celebrations

 

2017 Durga Puja in Australia

Colourful pandals ornamented with flowers and elaborately engraved deities, women dressed in stunning Tangail, Dhakai, Kantha, and Baluchari saris as well as men in conventional Kurta and Dhoti fashioned an atmosphere of Durga Puja.

During the 1970s, there were only around 200 Bengali families in Sydney, but today there are around 7 pujas in Sydney only, which suggests increasing number of Bengali people. Generally, people are very enthusiastic to take part and contribute the skills and talents they have got for making this a grand event for friends and family.

Last year, Das who is a gifted sculptor and musician, had painted and carved the deities commencing balsa wood. Kids were cheered to enter in a painting and drawing competition whereas the spectators were pleasured with modern fusion music and conventional Rabindra Sangeet.

Durga Puja has been an enormous way to connecting with new people in the community. It becomes a transition now of settling in new country very easily. In the last 2-3 years, there has been an increase in young couples, particularly in skillful migrants, and students also come for festivities and prayers.

At the same time as the community grows up in multicultural Australia, there have been a lot of mixed marriages. Last year, in Melbourne, one thousand Bengalis across the whole state and in so far as Canberra, get together at football club in southern town of Keysborough to rejoice the Durga Puja.

The deities, prepared from Pith (Shola) as well as coconut fiber, were got from Kolkata 2-3 years ago. The puja at this point is very conventional, holding to old rituals. Everybody gets mixed up in enormous community strength, youngsters cut fruits for ‘Prasad’ and women arrange the sweets. Though, with rising numbers, it’s required hiring caterers for the last couple of years for preparing the conventional lunch. All the way through this cheerful week, people are coming together at puja pandals after working.
