‘’In Bangladesh we celebrate DURGA PUJA for 5 days but in Melbourne due to some constraints of timing, we celebrate that in weekends along with Friday night’’ says Mr SHAYAN DATTA Asst. General Secretary of BPCSV. He added ”As far as I am concerned, whatever it is too far away from our country Bangladesh, to imprint our culture and tradition in our heart always we organised DURGA PUJA every year from BPCSV where each and every community people along with us celebrate the PUJA”
