Vision and Mission of BARSHA

    The name BARSHA is popularly associated with the most well-managed & organized Durga Puja (Durgotsav) in HSR Layout, Bangalore. We have been organizing various socio-cultural events in HSR Layout, Bangalore for several years. Since 2016, the Durga Puja and Diwali celebrations have been held at the Sri Muneshwara Temple (Google map - Barsha Durga Puja Bangalore). The 5-day cultural extravaganza during Durga Puja has become an extremely popular and well attended cultural fiesta in Bangalore, featuring events for kids, students, corporates, homemakers - young and old. Both the in-house cultural programs, performed by members, and the glitzy professional events attract equal crowds and applause. We have also organized cultural programs from famous artists from Kolkata and beyond. BARSHA Association is a forum of like minded, cosmopolitan, and enthusiastic people who have come together with a vision to create a forum for organizing and enjoying cultural functions centering around some major festivals. It started with a group of nostalgic Bengalis who wanted to have a feel of Calcutta during the Durga Puja in Bangalore. Starting in 2014, the initial group was subsequently joined by a number of other people from various backgrounds and speaking different languages, but with a shared interest in art and culture. BARSHA now has grown to a big organization, and was formally registered as a Trust few years ago. It is run professionally by its members, who have volunteered to take up the extra workload for the sake of some fun and entertainment for the innumerable people of Bangalore. From a 20 member, BARSHA has grown to 125 strong members and we expect many more in coming days. The main events of BARSHA are the Durga Puja , Diwali (Kali Puja), Saraswati Puja, All member lunch\dinner, Annual Picnic & Rabindra-Nazrul evening celebrations. The five day long cultural program during Durga Puja has become very popular with the young IT crowd of Bangalore. The events are planned such that everyone has something to enjoy. All days are packed with fun-n-food-n-frolic. If you're not there, you're surely missing something! We would like to extend the invitation to each and every Bangalore-an to participate in the celebrations. Do keep checking this site for details of the different events planned this year.
