As we bid Farewell to Ma Durga, we also create some wonderful memories over these five days , none of which would be possible without our esteemed guests and friends.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to our sponsors , guests, friends and patrons who joined in our Durga Puja celebrations with great energy and vigour . The honourable Mayor of Slough councillor Arvind Dhaliwal and Fiona MacTaggart, Labour MP from Slough were among the noted dignitaries to grace our Marquee.
This year our altered model of serving dinner earlier was very successful and we have received extremely encouraging feedback as guests could enjoy the cultural feast after a delicious Bhog. Traditional Bengali vegetarian delicacies were served for lunch and dinner and out in house Kitchen team are happy and humbled at the rave reviews .
This year our decoration was eco friendly and cost effective and great fun as we involved RBBA kids to create beautiful Origami flowers which were used as the backdrop on the stage.
We were delighted to note a footfall of over 8000 guests over the 5 days. Local and invited guest artists along with our ever popular RBBA band were the usual crowd pullers as Navami night erupted into a musical frenzy and spontaneous dancing.
During the first 2 days, colourful saree stalls kept the women enthralled with their mesmerising patterns and weaves and we had many live models gracing the marquee adorned in their new sarees and jewellery. A witty storyline was evolving in parallel as the sponsorship chain was being woven into a tale of home, cars and apparel ! Repeated announcements kept our guests entertained . Another highlight this year was our Talent hunt and the Sit and Draw competition which unearthed some fabulous talent in arts and performing arts ! Well known Indian artistes Sahana Bajpaie and Samya Karpha gave away the competition prizes for the Talent hunt and the Dhaak competition. The Talent hunt was a beautiful exhibition of talent on stage which made the evening a very enjoyable one .
As is our endeavour every year we are we are keen to always receive feedback on your experience to try and improve processes and make it even better next year and truly live up to our motto of Desher Pujo Bideshe.
We have uploaded many photos of the event on our Facebook page and will continue to post regular updates on both the page and our website .
We thank you again and count on your support in our other events throughout the year !
