Welcome to Prabasi
Durga Puja 2014
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 planned several grand events. Among the prominent artists from abroad are Bollywood singer Monali Thakur, Somlata from Kolkata and classical singer Sounak Chattopadhyay.
Dates: October 4 and 5, 2015
Venue: Chabot College, Hayward.
