From The Desk Of The Secretary

My Dear Friends,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Trust has completed its 62 years of Durga Puja Celebrations, after successful completion of our celebration over the long period we have reached to the 63rd Diamond Jubilee Year. Durga Puja is no mere a religious function. It signifies harmony amongst everybody and it occupies a very special place in the heart of all, irrespective of caste and creed. Although, during these days of Puja, Bengalies get together and share the auspicious occasion but I have observed that, over the year people from all community have imbibed the essence of Durga Puja celebrations by assembling together in our Puja Pandal.

We are proud to mention that our Puja has completed the long 62th year of its existence and what a distinguished existence it has been. In the turmoil and era of differences our committee in Mumbai has stood as a rock of solid hard core foundation.

It is really a great feeling and thrilling experience to write something and address to all of your to this 63rd year of Durga Puja celebration. During my long association with the Puja committee, I have seen the tremendous dedication and energy of our old members. Frankly speaking, it only gave me vigor to work more. I distinctly remember when I joined the Puja Committee, the membership were few. But today our memberships have grown to large number. More new people have joined. Their ideas have been given due consideration. Without support of all of you it would not have been possible to carry out the activities. My recall the selfless and untiring contribution made by all members.

On this occasion I also remember with reverence of all our seniors departed members who have made a great contribution to the samiti.

To this great occasion my sincere request to all of you to assemble everyday during the puja and guide us to keep the evil spirit at bay and to organize the Puja in a befitted manner.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the members of the committee and extend sincere gratitude to all the patrons, advertisers, Santacruz Police Station, BMC and sponsors.

My thanks to those who although are not holding any organizational post in the committee but have shown interest in steering our activities.

Jai Maa Durga
