Dear Member,

Here's a joint project you can do with your kids or family or friends
or co-workers:

Prabasi is proud to sponsor 'Bengal Month' at ICC (Indian Community
Center) in Milpitas for the month of April, 2006.

Decorating ICC:
We are looking for collages on Bengal's History, Famous Bengalis
Entertainment, Literature, Charity, Freedom Fighters, Religious
leaders, Academicians., Bengal's Pujas, Bengali Movies, Bengali music

The collages must be done on white poster paper - 36" x 48" or more.
Please do not write very small print and make the artwork or pictures
large and colorful as the collages will be mounted on walls and people
walking down the corridors should be able to read them easily.

Please email Sushmita Datta at    the following:

   1. Your name or your group's names and age(s) and
   2. The Topic or Title for your collage.

Please drop off your collage by April 1st at the ICC, Milpitas at 555
Los Coches St. We will accept collages until the 20th of April but the
earlier you give us your collages, the longer will people of the Bay
area be able admire your creativity.

Bengal Day: On Sunday, April 23rd, ICC will hold 'Bengal Day' and all
the collages will be open to public from 11:30 - 5:00 pm. ICC
anticipates about 1000 people during the entire time. We will have
Bengali food available for purchase from a licensed caterer.

Bengal Day Program: On the same day, from 3:30 - 4:30 pm, we will have
a music/dance program. This will be mainly a children's program and
all participants must be between 5 and 18 years of age. A committee
has already been chosen to head this program (see below)

    * For songs, Mahuya Dhar from Cupertino and Jaya Basu from Los
      Gatos will chair the live music section for the program.
    * For dances, Susmita Bhatacharya and Kasturi Basu will chair the
      dance section of the program.
    * The program will also have narration and Sushmita Datta will be
      chair person for that section.

If your child(ren) wishes to participate in the program either for
singing or dancing or narrating, please apply for auditions by sending
email to Sushmita Datta at    . Last date to email
would be March 20th. In your email please send your name, age, how
many years you have been involved in singing and/or dancing and your
contact information (address, phone number). Please note that the
final approval for participation will depend on the decision of the
respective chairs after audition.

We need your help to introduce Bengal to the people of the Bay area.
Show us how proud you are to be a Bengali.
