One of the most ancient and traditionally bounded parts of vast Behala is “Barisha”. This expanded area includes the historic place Atchala along with Dadosh Shiv Mondir which are very famous. The above mentioned places are the centre of attraction of all the cultural activities and are of unlimited cultural importance. The fame of the Saborno Roychowdhury family of Barisha is heard all over the world. At present this family celebrates Durga puja with great splendour and this is one of the spectacular spot of attraction which is included in West Bengal Government’s special puja tour package. About 70 years ago, the initiative of some enthusiastic youth gave birth to Barisha Sarbojonin Durgotsab in the year 1949. Many people expressed their doubt about this idea because at that point oftime Durga puja was performed only in their “Thakurdalan” of the Roychowdhury family. But the members of Barisha Sarbojonin Durgotsab Committee, namely Sree Surendranath Roychowdhury,Sree Tulsi Roychowdhury, Sree Parbaticharan Roychowdhury, Sree Annadacharan Mitra and others took an initiative to extend the durga puja to a much larger scale by including the families of the entire locality. With this objective Barisha Sarbojonin Durgotsab was started and is continuing till now verysuccessfully. Later on people like Sree Jibon Mukherjee, Sree Shyamacharan Mitra, Sree P.K.Roychowdhury and Sree Santosh Roychowdhury took the responsibility of this puja. Though we have lost many of the above members, but the path they have shown is still followed by the present generation, as a result of which Barisha Sarbojonin Durgotsab is worth watching.
Every year the local people extend their helping hands for the prosperity and the advancement of the puja. Since last 10 years Barisha Sarbojonin Durgotsab has been awarded with many prizes from different circles and Thana Sammanoy Committees. This is our 70th year of durga puja celebration. Weare sure like the previous years; this year too people from all walks of life will join us spontaneously to make our invocation of Mother Goddess a great success.
We are grateful to Sree Apurba Dutta, Sree Malay Dutta and Sree Sudip Chakrovorty for giving us valuable information’s about Barisha Sarbojonin Durgotsab.
