2017 Durga Puja in New Zealand
In New Zealand, Durga Puja is celebrated with the same passion
like it’s celebrated in different other countries. Bengali Hindu
community in New Zealand has great admiration for this festival,
even if they are living outside India. All Indian communities in
New Zealand get together with Bengali sisters and brothers to
rejoice Durga Puja and to demonstrate how beautiful and colorful
the Indian culture is.
For past several years, Bengali people in New Zealand are
celebrating Durga Puja and also have created some organizations
which perform Durga Puja and make all the preparations right
from making pandals to arranging Bengali sweets which are
provided to the worshippers.
Wellington Durgoutsav Committee is amongst the most prominent
organizations which arrange Durga Puja every year in New
Zealand. A group of some friends, who are living in North
Palmerstone, initiated the “Sharbojonin” Durga Puja through the
help of the Wellington Bengali Community which is also known as
Prantik Durgoutsav Communities.
Though, there are only some families who play a part in in the
Durga Puja, still it’s totally fun filled because there are a
number of cultural programs which are organized to amuse people
and also organize stage shows on Durga Puja. Also there are
various sweets serving and public from New Zealand also
participate during this occasion, because they also like to take
pleasure of the Indian culture and festivals.
The Wellington Bengali community is rising ever more, so total
events for Durga Puja have also been increased. The requirement
for Durga Puja is rising because of the increasing population of
Bengali Indians in New Zealand. It has helped a lot in
increasing the fame of Durga Puja in different countries and in
New Zealand also.
The main objective of this population is to continue Durga Puja
for longer period of time so that the Indian festivals and
culture keep spreading forever.
