The club was formed in the year 1947 post independence. The club was formed by the local residents as a place of get-together. With all other recreations, Durga Puja was also part of their activities. The Puja at that time used to happen inside a house in the form of community Puja. During that time the involvement was limited to few families. With time more families wanted to be part of the Puja and so organizing Puja in the same location was getting tough. Around 1950 the Durga Puja a, moved to a nearby park. The newer Puja was of larger form with more families started participating and transferred themselves to a Baroari Puja. They continued with the traditional Durga Puja for more 50 years. With changing time the club wanted to do something different and new so on 2005 the club transferred themselves to organize theme Puja.
The club with tine have venture into social activities.

2010 Theme : Andhoker r atol theke ananto r dika - From darkness to enlightment
  This year the theme is to come out of darkness to light. Members of larger families have got scattered and the young generation have moved to greener pastures for the resource of work. Older generation of the traditional & distinguished families have stayed on to their roots and culture. The cost for that have been the loneliness & neglect ness by the younger generation. The old are left at the mercy of time & themselves. The involvement of the younger generation to their culture has been in the form of spending a vacation during Durga puja.
So to find company the older generation invited people of similar fate to stay together.
In spite of the old age and the falling health condition the older generation still believe in the power of good over evil and reach to the pure light by worshiping mother durga at their home with the involvement of other residents.
So they invite mother with her family to visit their Bridha Ashram in this Autumn Festival (autumnal).
