Bengali Cultural Association (BCA) is a ‘No Profit No Loss’ Socio Religious Cultural Association mooted with the objective of spreading the Bengali Traditions and culture amongst the entire community irrespective of where they belong. While Durga Puja is celebrated in a large scale, Lakshmi Puja, Kali Puja and Saraswati Puja are also celebrated with full rituals and devotion. The Pujas are celebrated with a view to keeping the mythological values, written in various scriptures, fresh in the minds of the new generation; accompanied by the joy of festivities through various cultural activities organized during the Puja days. This is also an effort to integrate the society at large and remind them about the rich traditions our ancestors had. Cultures are easily absorbed by people when packaged with fun, frolic, prayers, fasting, pious ceremonies, eateries, exhibitions, cultural programs, competitions, shopping and thus the engagement is severe. Many people literally weep after the celebrations are over; so much is the involvement.

Lakshmi Puja is celebrated on the Full Moon day after the Vijaya Dashami. Many communities celebrate Lakshmi Puja during Dipawali. In Bengali culture Kali Puja is celebrated during Dipawali. The story behind this is that Ma Kali destroyed all powerful Rakhshasas (Demons) blessed with lots of boons and liberated the heaven for ever from the clutches of the evil powers. Saraswati Puja is celebrated during the Spring Season (Basant) when the mother earth is calm and soothing and is also known as Basant Panchami to many communities. Ma Saraswati is known to be Goddess of Knowledge and small children are inducted into formal scribbling in front of the Devi by the priests or by elders. This is considered to be auspicious. In Bengali it is called “Haate Khori”. Books are also kept at the feet of the Goddess. All the above Pujas are celebrated in various forms in different parts of our country by different community but the key theme everywhere is ‘Shakti’. Ma Durga is depicted in her glorious persona killing “Mahishasura”, the most evil Demon, with the trident in her hand. Bengali tradition of Durga Puja is weaved around Ma Parvati’s entire family since Lakshmi, Saraswati, Kartik and Ganesha are known to be her children according to mythology. Thus beneath one canopy; wealth, knowledge, beauty and wisdom are also worshipped. Durga Puja is the biggest festival for Bengalis yet millions of Non Ben
