Prabasi To Celebrate Durga Puja 2015

Press Release

It is that time of the year again. The days are getting shorter and very soon there will be a nip in the air. We will be bidding farewell to the warmth of summer and then wait for the riotous fall colors to emerge. But the true excitement is in the anticipation of Durga Puja. The spirit of the Puja festivities is contagious and affects us all.

This year
 Prabasi will be celebrating Durga Puja on October 24th & 25th at the John F. Kennedy Middle School, 655 Lexington St, Waltham.

On Saturday, Puja will start at 11 am followed by Prasad and Lunch. The evening dinner will start at 5:30 pm and the concert at 7:00 pm. Saturday’s performer is Chandrabindoo (a famous Bangla Band from Kolkata). CHANDRABINDOO has recently celebrated its 25-year anniversary as a testimony to their success and versatility in the Bengali music scene.  To complement this success, Anindya in 2015 made a very successful debut as a director of the movie Open Tee Bioscope with Upal contributing to music composition as well as in playback singing along with Anindya.
