Started in 1919, this puja is hallowed by the names of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Acharya Prafulla Chandra Roy, Dr Shyamaprosad Mukherjee, Dada Thakur J.M. Sengupta, Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy, Shri Hemanta Kumar Basu, Shri Bankim Mukherjee and Shri Harisankar Paul among others.
Every year this puja sports a traditional, universal idol of Maa Durga. Millions of spectators from all over West Bengal visit this puja.
A major attraction of this year's "light-n-sound" presentations include the Titanic, atomic explosions at Pokhran, World Cup Soccer '98 and so on.
The puja committee also organises a splendid exhibition. This year it will take off on September 26 and touch down on October 6 with a gala, multi-starred cultural nite.
