Prabashi Darpan

It is that time of the year when we get together in a festive mood to celebrate our favorite annual event - the Durga Puja. We would like to thank you all for making this year's Pujo a grand success. We have been celebrating our Pujo for more than 20 years and every year we try to do something special. At the same time, we acknowledge that your help has made it possible and we could not have done this without you. The council is very blessed to have the unflinching support of our exuberant community in staging this biggest event of the year.

This year we are very proud to host Iman Chakraborty as our external artist from Kolkata. Iman Chakraborty is a national award winner and she has enthralled audiences across all generations with her wonderful renditions spanning the globe. We hope you will enjoy her wonderful performance.

We have made some changes to our pricing structure to better align our expenses based on past data points. We hope the changes meet your expectations and please do not hesitate to share your comments using our website. As our community grows, we hope to stage a much larger event in the future.

It is befitting to assume that with each passing year we will have new expectations from our patrons. We see new faces join our event and participate in various tasks. We try to implement new ideas and sometimes we fall short. But we believe that with more new faces joining hands, we will be able to fulfill our dreams and aspirations.

We wish you all a pleasant and enjoyable Pujo. Keep adding more fond memories to your journey in Portland. After all, this is our home away from home. Only we can make it unforgettable. Stay blessed.
