Durga Puja and Sharad Utsav

Durga Puja and Sharad Utsav

Durga Puja is here again to revive and recharge us with energy, life and happiness. Durga Puja is an eternal celebration of life, culture, customs and traditions. A time to come together, reunite, love, share and hold hands with promises of a happy and bright year ahead.

হিমের পরশ লাগলো প্রাণে
শারদীয়ার আগমনে ,
দুঃখ কষ্ট ব্যথা ভুলে
আনন্দে মন উঠলো দুলে,
শিশির ভেজা নতুন ভোরে
মা আসছেন আলো করে ।
