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
