Dear Member,,

As we come close to the end of our current financial year, we wanted to let you know that we will start our membership renewal drive soon. Our membership system is not ready yet - since we will be opening up our automated seating system simultaneously. Please watch out for announcements regarding membership renewal at which point you will have a chance to renew your membership and select your seats together at the same time.

Durga Puja Banner

Our Durga Puja page is ready with all details already. Please head over to to see which invited artists will be performing during puja.

Prominent artists include Bollywood singer Papon on Saturday. On Sunday we will have two Bengali plays by Gautam Halder and team, and another musical program by Sampa Kundu.

Invitation for Shankha articles 

We invite all of you to submit articles for our upcoming issue of Shankha. Earlier, Shankha articles were limited to only Prabasi members. This year we are opening up our invitation to the whole world - anyone can submit articles in Bengali for Shankha.

In order to reduce our typesetting effort, you should submit your articles already typeset in Bengali using a Bengali font. For typing in Bengali, please compose your articles on the web directly by using Google Input Tools. Go to and set your language to Bengali. Then compose your article paragraph-by-paragraph. As you have finished typing the paragraph, copy that portion to a Word document. After completing it, send the document as an attachment to

Master/Mistress of Ceremonies 
For Durga Puja, we need MCs, and here is your chance to shine on stage. Anyone who is interested in playing the role of an MC during Durga Puja, can send an email to with their background explaining how they can contribute.

Also we need volunteers for Sound and Lights as well. Please send email to with your name and contact information.
