Purbasha Celebrates Kali Puja; Hosts Nirmitee

Kali Puja


Atlanta, Dec 2012: Purbasha celebrated their second year of Kali Puja at Berkmar High School on Saturday, November 10. Like last year, this year’s event too was a great success. The turnout was huge with guests from North Carolina, Tennesse and Alabama attending along with Georgia folks.

While jewelry, sari and snack vendors caught everyone's attention, guests were raving about the "puchhka" stall. Everybody present was enthralled with the live dhol and dhak performances. 


Decorations and the idol were put up in an impeccable style. From Kumortulli, standing five feet tall, goddess Kali was effulgent in scintillating attire. The Puja began around 6.00pm and guests joined thereafter to offer 'pushpanjali' to Maa Kali. The atmosphere was charged with the sound of dhak, dhol and chants as devotees offered their unfeigned prayers to the mother goddess.
A sumptuous dinner, catered by Raja restaurant in Buckhead, was served after prasad distribution. As part of the cultural program for the evening, Purbasha was delighted to host the famous X-Factor group "Nirmitee" from Bollywood. Their spectacular performance mesmerized the audience till the early hours of next morning.
