Highlights of the season

Berger Priyo Pujo has carefully identified initiatives which are surely going to touch the emotions and expectations of everyone. With the competition completing 10 years, Berger Priyo Pujo, this year, has made glam and grandeur of the competition ten times bigger.

The key initiatives for this year's Berger Priyo Pujo

Berger Priyo Pujo Anthem

The catchiest tune of the festivity, the Berger Priyo Pujo anthem, originally sung by Koushiki Chakraborty, Iman Chakraborty, Rupam Islam & Rupankar, has leapt up the popularity charts every year. To add punch, Shaan, the famous playback singer and Somlata have also joined the bandwagon.

This year, the Berger Priyo Pujo song will also appear in its new avatar in a new video which strums the emotion that is Durga Puja in the hearts of every Bengali, whether they are here in Kolkata or other parts of the country or even crossing the borders across the world. Watch out and start humming.

Make reels with the snippets of the song and be a part of the grand celebrations….

So sing along with us and cheer for your favourite pujo!

Bhinno Chokhe Onyo Pujo

Among all the celebrations and pandal hopping, there are people who get left behind from the festivities. It is a sad reality that there are a lot of children and elderlies who spend most of their lives away from their families at orphanages and senior care homes. Old age is an inevitable part of human life and these people need the most care and affection to get through the loneliest stage of life, and same goes for the little ones who aren’t fortunate to know their families at all.

With this thought in mind, Berger Paints aims to include all these people in this year’s festivities. Few such orphanages and senior care homes will be chosen and given a grand makeover, both for the homes as well as the people residing in them. New paints for the homes and new clothes for the dear ones! But that’s not it, there will be lots of activities and excitements for this extended family of ours…

Alpona Contest

The Berger Priyo Pujo Alpona Contest is back with bigger grandeur and creativity from all the talented artists of different paras and abashans this year.

Running across Kolkata Barowari pujos & housing complexes of Kolkata, this colourful competition is for the Pujo organisers to participate and win exciting prizes.

Get as creative as you can get and the more the colour the better it is.

Special arrangements have been made to stream the Anjali live through Berger Priyo Pujo official website. You can select from a list of live locations to pay your tribute to Maa Durga from the comfort of your home and yet keep the festive spirit high.
