Durga Puja 2011 Timings

Puja has already started. From what I heard from my sister and friends in Kolkata, there are thousands of people out in the streets to visit one pandal from the other. Its Panchami today, and the puja has not yet started. Tomorrow morning will mark the beginning of Durga Puja for 2011 (1418 by the Bengali calendar). There are many of us who are out of Bengal now, and just searching over the internet to see if there’s at least one Durga puja going on at your present city.

As of Bangalore, I found quite a few Durga pujas this year. The most popular being the Bengali Association Puja in Palace Ground and of course there are some more in Koramangala Kalyana Manthapa, 6th Block; another Durga puja a few steps from this one is the Durga Puja near Jyoti Nivas college. The fourth is near to the place where I stay now – the Sarjapur Road Total Mall.

  1. I appreciate your blog’s mission for spread of authentic Bengali cuisine. The rush for such cuisine jumps as we pass through the puja days. Bangla food and Bangla puja are just the two hearts of a living entity called Bengali. I would have added the third heart – that’s Books and Adda.All three integrate so well here in Bengal and it has now become part of our genes. Your endeavor is one such praiseworthy effort.

    On the occasion of Shub Vijaya, my best wishes – Bengalis where ever, live ,prosper and integrate

  3. Chanced upon your blog and must appreciate your effort in bringing forth authentic Bengali cuisine. Nice to see how you have complied Durga puja timings for the convenience of the readers. This year, I have posted quite a few Navratri recipes that I have prepared for Durga Pooja this year.

    Will try to drop by more often for some good Bengali recipes. I have another resource for Bengali recipes other than Sandeepa’s. 🙂

    Wishing you a happy festive season.

    Btw, I’m Sailaja of Sailus Kitchen.
