The puja was initially started near Paresh Nath Mandir, a community temple around the locality. Like most pujas, the theme and idols were traditional but as time went on, it somehow it failed to attract visitors. In the year 2004, some of the committee members realized that it was time to make the transition towards an approach that was currently popular among the masses – the concept of a theme puja. The rest, as they say is history, because lakhs of people throng the locality to see the pandal and deities every year.

Here are the themes of the past few years:

2004- ‘Basher Nirmito Surjo Mandir’- the pandal was constructed using bamboo, canvas and colours

2005- ‘Rupa Mati Ma’- aluminum foil was used to give a silver effect.

2006- ‘Utsav’- the festive atmosphere of Durga Puja itself was depicted

2007- ‘Sona Barir, Boro Ma’- Ma Durga was shown embracing her children

2008- ‘Choronamrita’- a type of holy water that is considered sacred among the Hindus

2009- ‘Mela’- a fair

2010- ‘Tandob’- Lord Shiva’s ‘Dance of Destruction’ was portrayed

2011- ‘Elem Natun Deshe’- the concept was based on Midnapore’s ‘Tepa Putul’ or tapped dolls.

2012- ‘Shonkhe Shonkhe Mangal Gao’- portrayal of the autumn season
