Welcome to Prabasi
Durga Puja 2016
Every year Durga Puja brings us sweet reminiscences from Bengal - from the sound of dhaak, to the hustle-bustle of ladies trying to do their last minute shopping, to the smell of dhuno and shiuli. This year will be special as we have many things new. First of all we have a new Durga Protima from Kolkata. Then we also have a new location for the pujo at Santa Clara Fairgrounds. Professional programs this year will be a musical concert by a Bollywood artist (yet to be decided) on Saturday and another musical concert by Joy Sarkar on Sunday. See more...
Dates: October 8 and 9, 2016
Venue: Santa Clara Fairgrounds in San Jose
