Whitefield Cultural Association (WCA) established in 2003, is registered under Govt of Karnataka. Our desire is to extend a gracious and inclusive welcome to all of you. Many of you have made a huge effort to join us today. On behalf of us all, we are deeply appreciative and offer you our most grateful welcome.
For a Bengali out of Bengal, Durga Pujo is an occasion that is perhaps the most loved and the most missed. Bangalore sure has its own Durga pujas here and there, peeping out of some corner somewhere, but the mad, crazy fever that Bengal dons during the five-day long festival is nowhere to be found. It can be felt only if we actively participate in pujo activities right from idol selection to idol bisarjan.
Here in WCA, members are not chosen selectively. True to our vision, all are welcome here. WCA does not desert its members and encourages active participation in all the activities of the association.
WCA has been trying its best to provide such an environment where everyone can find the positive energy and blend it to build a stronger foundation for Bengalis in and around Whitefield for today as well as for tomorrow.
For the past few years’ members, sponsors, volunteers, donors have been providing relentless support and co-operation in strengthening the foundation of WCA.
WCA’s list of celebrations and events are on the increasing trend. WCA hosts Durga puja, Kali puja, Saraswati puja, Poila boisakh and Rabindra Jayanti too has been included in its event list so that Bengalis away from their homeland stay in touch with their famed cultural background. Apart from this Bengalis are known for their immense love for food.
So keeping in mind of our gastronomical titles, WCA hosts potluck, picnic and bijoya sammiloni and many such events where we gather to talk over our beoved food.
Now coming to what makes our pujo different is that WCA durga pujo location draws a line of symmetry to our homeland pujo. ‘Khola math’e pujor anando’r kono simana nei. And this prime location of inner circle ground in Whitefield has been the location of WCA’s dugra pujo for years. ‘Bhog’, ‘Maha Prasad’, ‘Cultural Nights’ are additional highlights to it.
