In this era of theme puja , different puja committee creates different
themes like a beautiful Mandir or village of Bengal . These might be very
beautiful in creation but it not seems to match with the identity of that
So this time we wanted to created a theme “ Para Puja” . In this we wanted
to show a identity of a para (area ) and their specialty of an area in
organizing the Durga Puja.
We created a specific identity of our para (area) and to bring a Durga Puja
in the true form of a theme puja.
The whole idea was conceived & created by Suthanta pal to provide a Durga
Puja of different sort.

Soil has always been worshiped as mother from
ancient times. Soil’s fertility provides the harvest for life. The harvest
provides unlimited food to millions of living beings. A new born is nurtured
and brought up in mother’s Love.

nature’s fertility. We find similar strength and goodness in Mother Durga.
So Mother durga in the form of Maa Chandi have been represented as godess of
crop & harvest in our puja.
With reference from the manuscripts & the imagination of artists a duo of
soil and sky is being created in our pandal. Free and different thought of

Tridhara Sammilani's this year's thought is an unique experience of the One
and only 'Brahmo'.
We all know that 'Parama Brahmo' is an universal truth. It is self evolved
and complete by its own self. It is undisturbed, static, and unchanging
whilst swifter than mind. It initiates creation and its presence is felt in
each and every being of this universe. According to the inscriptions of the
Upanishad, there are two contradictory sides to 'Brahmo'. One is its 'Swamp'
way and the other is the 'Tathastha' way.
To fulfill the needs of creation it makes a promise or 'Brahmo Sankalpa' as
"Ekaihang Bahuslryam Projajeyo" meaning "I am One and I will become Many".
No creation is possible without the unision of the Purush and Nan shakti.
This initiated the innovation of the right hand portion of the Parameshwar
as the 'Purush' or 'Anadi' and the left hand portion as the 'Prakriti' or
'Maya'. This Prakriti is of exquisite beauty and extreme power. Purush and
Prakriti then started meditating and water came out of their bodies and 'Khirod
Sagar' was created. They then slept in this water body for many years and
thus came to be known as 'Narayan' and 'Narayani'. ['Nar' meaning water and
'Ayan' meaning sleeping.] At this moment of time there was nothing except
the Purush and the Prakriti. Then gradually from this Abyakto Prakriti
Mahatatwo was created. This Mahatatwo was empowered by the Trigunas such as
the Satya, Rojo and Tama. From Mahatatwo came Ahankar, from Ahankar came
Panchatanmantra, from Panchatanmantra came Panchabhut, from Panchabhut came
Panchagyanandriya and Panchakarmendriya. Narayan then got enlightened by all
these tatwas and went to sleep on the Anantasalil of the Khirod Sagar.
'Brahmo' integrated itself from the emissions of the Hiranyagarbha and got
established as the 'Brahma'. 'Brahma' then created the self mutating, egg
laying and the birth giving beings from the different parts of its mind and
body. 'Maha Saraswati' or 'Brahmani' became the female manifestation of
'Brahma' and expressed itself as the perfect idol of 'Satya Gunn'.
Hiranyagarbha or the 'Brahmanda' then divided itself into two - the Space
and the Earth. This was how the Earth, Space and Water got created.
To maintain these creations 'Brahmo' reincarnated itself as 'Vishnu'. 'Maha
Lakshmi' became the female manifestation of'Vishnu' and expressed itself as
the perfect idol of 'Rojo Gunn'.
Whenever there is creation there has to be destruction, so 'Brahmo' again
re-establishes itself as the 'Maheshwar'. 'Mahakali' thus became the female
manifestation of 'Maheshwar' and expressed itself as the perfect idol of
'Tama Gunn'. View Gallery
