Incessantly for the past few years our puja presents a new theme every year which has created a firm place in millions of heart across the globe, likewise keeping the continuation going in this year 2021 our puja came up with a new line of thought “MANOBIK”, which was showcased through the means of our puja theme. The Bhowanipur 75 Palli puja committee had decided to come to the aid of ”Chhau” artistes of Purulia district, who were badly hit by the lockdown. ”Chhau”, a traditional dance form, has performers retelling episodes of Ramayana, Mahabharata and the puranas, donning colourful costumes and masks. They depicted a small village of Purulia and brought the government enlisted ‘chhau’ dancers and their families to Kolkata.

Speaking to the media, Mr. Subir Das, Club Secretary said, “We are dedicating this award to kids & family members of Chhau artists in Purulia. We donated a major share of the subscription and the state’s dole to them, along with making the premises available for them to perform and sell their goods. We have donated clothes to kids of 250 Chhau Dancers in association with Max and Arihant Enterprises on the occasion of World Daughter’s Day at Charida Village in Purulia & have also given new clothes to the family members of ‘Chhau’ dancers by supporting 50-odd families. This initiative was taken by keeping with the financial losses everyone faced due to the pandemic. Many artistes and craftsmen are facing financial hardships as festivals and fairs have been called off across the country amid the pandemic. We are inspired by our Honourable CM Smt Mamta Banerjee and we thank her for giving Biswa Bangla Sharad Samman Awards for Sera Covid Sachetanata (Swasthyabidhi).”
