Utsab Cultural Association
Utsab organized their first Durga Puja in 2013. The 5 days event was hosted in premises of NITHM, Gachibowli. The event saw an overwhelming participation from all over Hyderabad. The mornings were bathed in the sacred hymns of puja while the evenings adorned the magnificent display of songs, dances and drama and saw a huge gathering of enthusiast people dancing to the tune of Dandiya.
The success in the maiden year and the support from our well-wishers and sponsors made us shift to a venue on the main road and hence SN Gardens hosted our Durga Puja. This year saw two Dandiya nights and some beautiful musical nights performed by star performers from Hyderabad. With over whelming support from all corners we bade the Mother Goddess good bye with a promise of a bigger celebration next year.
Our 3rd Durga Puja in 2015 saw us grow many folds. The afternoons saw a flood of crowds waiting to savor our delicious bhog, prepared by special cooks who comes every year from Kolkata. A very popular band from Kolkata MSonic performed on Nabami night, intoxicating Hyderabad with their melodious harmony. The in-house events were also major hits inviting accolades from many corners.
This year we shifted to the grounds of Meridian School, Hitec City. The event was adorned with traditional Chau Dance from Bengal, performance by Prashmita Mallik and Shramana Banerjee from Kolkata. The event saw a huge participation all the days. Warli paintings by our members were used to decorate the pandal interior and exterior. It turned out to be an excellent piece of art work.
