Bhowanipur 75 Palli Comes Up with Manobik
News Desk, News Nation 360 : The members of Bhowanipur 75 Palli have taken up the challenge to discover the theme “MANOBIK” and uplift the morale of "Chhau Dancers" (folk dance of Purulia, West Bengal) during Durga Puja. Bhowanipur 75 Palli is one of the eye-catcher puja of the city for its innovative concept and style of celebration. This Puja is particularly famous for its unique style of pandals and also for the social work which the committee carries out throughout the year. Speaking to the media, Subir Das, Club Secretary said that they are dedicating this puja to kids & family members of Chhau artists in Purulia, donating a major share of the subscription and the state’s dole to them, along with making the premises available for them to perform and sell their goods. They have donated clothes to kids of 250 Chhau Dancers on 26th September on the occasion of World Daughter’s Day at Charida Village in Purulia & will be also giving new clothes to the family members of 'Chhau' dancers by
supporting 50-odd families. This initiative is taken in keeping with the financial losses everyone is facing due to the pandemic. Many artists and craftsmen are facing financial hardships as festivals and fairs have been called off across the country amid the pandemic. They are inspired by their Honble CM Mamta Banerjee and will do their bit to help at least some of them.
