After completing a successful Durga Puja celebration, all our members decided to put our hands forward to celebrate Laxmi Puja. Kojagari Lakshmi Puja was held on 25th October 2007 at the same location where Durga puja was celebrated. As there was no laxmi idols available in bangalore, the idol was airlifted from kolkata. We also organised dinner for all the devotees.
The goddess was taken for imersion to the Ulsoor lake. The ladies of our association performed "dhamaiil" nach at the ghat. Though there is a sense of unhappiness in our hearts that our durga ma will be leaving us, but on the contrary we celebrate in expectance that ma durga will return back next year bringing with her joy,happiness and prosperity for mankind.

An evening that every one in the audience will remember. This performance was presented by a group of young children who are learning professional dancing. They came and performed with a very short notice. No time to reherse. Truely they are all gems. They all did a wonderful job!

Poila Baisak Celebration gathering April 2007:A few bengali families residing in R.T.Nagar area decided to start celebrating durga puja in R.T.Nagar area from the year 2007. The idea just came out as a normal thought process. The biggest challenge was first to gather a dozen of like minded people and form an association. After that a series of meetings were conducted at various locations where fund raising strategy was discussed,venue selection and other planning activities was also undertaken. A core comittee of around 30 members was formed and each member contributed a membership fee to accumulate the initial funding expense for the Durga Puja 2007 celebrations.
