North Bombay Sarbojanin Durga Puja Samiti, one of the oldest and the biggest Durga Puja in Mumbai goes virtual

October 20, 2020

As the festival of Maa Durga is approaching, the members of North Bombay Sarbojanin Durga Puja Samiti are all set to go the virtual way amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The members have decided to take their puja to the people through live streaming and social media through cell phones and laptops. They are concerned that with crowded pandals many may get infected by the deadly virus.

Infact this year they have scaled down the idol from 25ft to 4ft. The venue has been shifted to a small hall in Santa Cruz. Elder members are requested to stay home. Infact members are allowed to visit the pandal in small batches adhering to social distancing norms. Unfortunately outsiders, bhog, prasad and flowers are strictly prohibited to avoid physical contact. There will be two hours of morning anjali without flowers and two hours of sandhya aarti.

Deb Mukherjee says “We organise the festival for hundreds and thousands of devotees across India every year, however the celebration will be virtual this time. We seek the blessing of Maa Durga to help us in these tough times. We are happy to reach millions of people through our virtual celebration. We have set certain rules which are mandatory for every member who will visit the pandal to follow"
