Dear Member,,

Durga puja is just around the corner. And yet we have been awfully silent because we were vigorously working to secure a proper venue. Our decision to return to Chabot College this year fell through due the administration’s rigidity that posed several restrictions:

  • The campus is still under construction forcing the mandap indoor, and Fire Marshall restrictions prohibits “dhup-dhuno” inside a building
  • No tent can be set up outside the hall. It would be extremely difficult to serve lunch and dinner to our members
  • The space constraints would limit the number of vendor booths, impacting the puja "mela" ambiance

Given all these constraints and to give you the experience you have come to expect from Prabasi, we are moving back to Santa Clara Fairgrounds. Prabasi Durga puja celebration will take place on September 30th and October 1st,
With your active participation and involvement, Prabasi has proudly carried the mantle of our culture for the past four decades. You have created a platform where our next gen imbibes our culture, local artists showcase their talent, acclaimed artists enthrall us, and unknown performers go on to celebrity status.
Continuing that legacy, the talented duo S&S will present Bollywood "recycled with blues, jazz, and folk songs draped in symphony" on October 1st.  And June Banerjee, the upcoming singer of Bollywood, will take the stage during this year's Kali puja.
And we are planning many exciting competitions throughout the puja. Follow us on Facebook and on our websites for details. Please come forward. Get involved. This is our community, our organization. We need you to uphold our rich cultural heritage.
