Deshapriya Park Durgotsab, came into the focus in 2005, observing the centenary of “Protest against Partition of Bengal in 1905”. The pandal exterior was made a replica of Calcutta Town Hall, the most significant building to the incident. The interior was decorated with thousands of Rakhi signifying the initiation of Raksha Bandhan by Rabindranath Tagore during the partition, to establish brotherhood amongst the people of both the parts of Bengal.

The project was extensively covered by the media, highly appreciated by the public, and the footfalls were huge. It was the turn around year for this Samity. Since, then we were considered as a place to go by Kolkatans during the Puja days.

We started getting patronizations of big Indian Corporate as well as media houses since then.

Sri. S. K. Barman (Founder of Dabur India), Justice Padma Khastagir etc. joined us. With an uncompromising commitment towards sustaining and promoting our rich culture and exposing and reinforcing future generations whilst encouraging their active involvement with significant Indian values and heritage, the Samity has planned to attain new heights of aesthetic splendor and divine ambience through the ensemble of idol, pandal and environs of this ‘art puja’.

We aspire to present to the multitudes of our visitors an unique simulation of ‘Souro Chokrolok " where we relate "Sun the ultimate power (Shakti)" of Universe in respect of Astrological and Astronomical views, abode of Gods on our very planet - an innovative theme with a promise of radiating piety and devotion. We are successfully carrying forward a 76 year old glorious legacy of celebrations-The Post Platinum Jubilee.


  In our earnest endeavours to attain new heights of aesthetic splendour and divine ambience of the ensemble of idol, pandal and environs of this ‘art puja’ we aspire to present to the multitudes of our visitors an unique simulation of Souro Chokrolok – the abode of Gods on our very planet - an innovative theme with a promise of radiating piety and devotion. The theme has been conceived by none other than the celebrated artist and designer Shri Subha with a daunting track record of feathering almost all top coveted awards of Kolkata Durga Puja. His artistry will remain focused on a synergy of tradition and innovation at their creative best with an emphatic blend of art and worship in positioning of his creation of SOURO CHOKROLOK.
