Durga Puja among the diaspora

Across the world, Durga Puja serves as a community gathering and a connection to roots for the widespread Bengali diaspora. Tokyo has nearly ten Pujas, and North America has several hundred. Some of the oldest Durga Puja celebrations outside Bengal have been taking place in the United Kingdom for over seventy years. In recent years, Bengali communities in Australia, France and Germany have also started annual Durga Puja celebrations.

In the Middle East, restrictions by local governments on minority religious practices have prevented many Bengali communities from celebrating. The most consistent Durga Puja in the Gulf region has been celebrated in Muscat, Oman, since 1982. The permanent venue for the annual celebration since 1994 has been the Hindu temple in Sohar, in old Muscat. Bengali Cultural Society Kuwait started Durga Puja as Sharadotsav in 1996 and continued till 2000. After 9/11, this has become a five-day get together and cultural programmes.

About Chittaranjan Park
Chittaranjan Park is in South New Delhi. In the late 1960, it was set up to adjust migrants who left East Pakistan at the time of Partition of the country. Around 1980 it was called EPDP colony (East Pakistan Displaces Person) then it name was changed to honor the well known freedom fighter Chittaranjan Das who was also a lawyer. At inception it has 2147 plots distributed into 11 Blocks from A to K. later some more blocks were added to accommodate more people at Chittaranjan Das.

The colony was built exclusively for the migrants from east Bengal however, with time other Bengalis were also attracted to this place. Nevertheless, the place is still the most important colony of Bengali culture in the capital of the country. Volatile growth of South Delhi resulted rise in property price.
