Dear Patrons & Friends,

Durgotsav 2021 is just a few days away and this year’s celebration will be very different like last year. With Covid-19 and the New Normal setting in, this year Bangiya Parishad, Gurgaon will be celebrating Durga Puja on a smaller scale, with all the safety precautions in place. Our enthusiasm will never wane but, keeping in mind the present conditions, we urge our patrons & members to connect with us virtually and celebrate from the safety of their homes.

In our endeavor to keep things as normal as possible, BPG will publish its Souvenir for 2021 to commemorate the occasion and we solicit your creative contributions for the same. We, at BPG, would also like to use this platform to encourage our patrons across generations to put pen to paper and let the creative juices flow.

This year we have not decided on any theme for our Puja, so go ahead and choose any topic that is close to your heart.  Do keep in mind that the Souvenir will be read by people of every age group. The contribution should be in the form of write-ups/articles/travel diaries/short stories/poems, etc. We also look forward to paintings, sketches, drawings, etc. from our ‘valued members and the little ones’.
