Dear Member,,

As Durga Puja approaches us day-by-day all through this week, we know you are all excited about it since thi
s is a once-in-a-year opportunity. Yes, we are just 6 days away from celebrating Durga Puja on Oct 17 and 18 at Chabot College.

While we don't insist that you dress up in your best clothes for the occasion, we do know in our hearts that you are getting ready to prep up for the show. That means arranging your best sarees and panjabis for the occasion, getting your best jewelery from the bank or your vault, maybe a visit to the nearby beautician and making sure your weekend is really free of any official work. We, at Prabasi share the same spirit!

This year your dress-up effort is not going to go wasted. There will be a photo booth among our vendors to capture your best look of the year, and preserve it over time. The booth will be run by some of our own volunteers who are also members of Prabasi. All you have to do is just show up and take your portrait photographs. You can purchase the photographs if you really like them. The proceeds will go towards charity - to fund non-profit organizations and NGOs working in India - specially in Paschim Banga.

Your photographs will be available for download from or - a web-site created for this purpose. You can go to this web-site and check out the sample pictures - and maybe you'll recognize a few faces since they are all from our community. You can see that these portraits are different from those you'll get from any standard photography shop. Typically photographs of this kind require a lot of post-processing making it very expensive, but your price will be a fraction of that since it is being done with volunteered time.

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Go to the sign-up sheet and fix up a time when you can show up.
  2. Come to the photo-booth at your allocated time and pose for your photo shoot.
  3. After the weekend, we will post-process your best shots and post it on the web-site
  4. We will send you a notification about the photograph.
  5. You can download a print-ready digital copy after making a purchase.
  6. We can also assist you in getting a printed copy - either on paper or on any other material or object you prefer.
  7. If you wish your photograph to be printed on special material we can process it accordingly.

We hope you can make good use of this opportunity and indirectly also help the non-profit organizations that are trying to make a difference in India.
