Durga Puja Preparations

As there are not much days left before the Bengalis most awaited event of the year to start, we here at Aikataan have also started our preparations also at full swing.

With our idea of this year’s puja to be held outside in much larger scale, we are having weekly meetings either virtual or in-person. The different committees have started in their individual tasks assigned and the practise for the cultural program is also going on with full pace.

Here are some of the glimpses of the preparation that has started.

Annual General Meeting – 2022

After two years of online AGM, closed-door meetings and virtual celebrations, we finally held our ‘Annual General Meeting’ on 17th April 2022 in person at Shubhas Bhavan, RR Nagar. As we met after a long time, we had lots of fun, enjoyed light-hearted chats and had sumptuous lunch. We also made important decisions about this year’s event list, Durga Puja venue finalization, annual membership fee and many more.

As we also celebrated ‘Poila Baishak’ on the same day, a cultural event marked the end of the AGM 2022 meeting.
