Post Second World War socio-economic conditions of the country was gloomy. Undivided India was still struggling to gain Independence. Communal harmony of undivided India was at its worse. At this hour of crisis three gentlemen, Late Sri Rashbehari Ghosh, Late Dr. Kumarkanti Ghosh and Late Sri Mohit Mohon Ghosh came forward to facilitate the localites of Chakraberia and its adjoining localities to celebrate and perform all rituals related to Durga Puja peacefully within the locality. A community Durga Puja named as "Chakraberia Sarbojanin Durgotsab," was thus initiated in 1946 by this trio.
Since then the Chakraberia Sarbojanin Durgotsab Committee has been continuing the glorious legacy of this Puja against all odds and obstacles making this one of the most sought-after and visited Pujos of Kolkata. As this historical Puja steps into its 74th year of celebrations, this year, the celebrations promise to be grand.
Right from its inception in 1946 till 2002 Chakraberia Sarbojanin Durgotsab celebrated Durga Pujo in a very traditional manner. In keeping with modern times and taking the confidence of all its members, this historic Durga Pujo transformed from the traditional way of celebration to a Theme based Pujo in 2003. The change over the last 16 years contributed enormously to the success, recognition, popularity and fan following of Chakraberia Sarbojanin Durgotsab.More
To Chakraberia Sarbajonin Durgotsab, Durga Pujo is not just a religious celebration. It is an event designed to bring communities and people of all ages and beliefs together in a joyous celebration. This spirit of unity is best carried forward by this Pujo Committee through their cultural and social activities held during the Durga Puja days and ensuing celebration season.More
Chakraberia Sarbojanin Durgotsab also believes in making the society sustainable for one and all. We believe Durga Pujo is a celebration for all and must give everyone a chance to smile. To bring in happiness in the lives of the less privileged, we organize a number of social activities during the Durga Pujas.
Chakraberia Sarbojanin Durgotsab Committee is known to come up with interesting and out-of-the-box themes at their Durga Pujo every year, and this year is no different.
The Theme for 2019 Durga Pujo is 'Parat' - Layers of Reality. Chakraberia Sarbojanin's Pujo Pandal this year aspires to take its visitors through different levels of reality.
