This year, Aantarik is very excited to bring you 'Durga Puja 2021' right here at your doorstep amidst the green sylvan surroundings of Chelsfield Village Hall. We were blessed with thousands of footfall in 2019 and were also able to do fully online Puja ( 5 days) from right here in Orpington in 2020. This year it is once again a proper community Puja in which your physical presence is encouraged and welcome ( of course latest Covid rules will still apply and we expect you to be vigilant).
Nothing else changes - you can expect the same authenticity and ambience that you have previously experienced when visiting our Saraswati Puja, Anandamela, and other events over the past several years.
All of you are very welcome and cordially invited to come and experience the 2 days of bliss and blessings as we all celebrate the Puja together, united in our diversity, as one single community.
Key Facts to Note:
We welcome inputs, suggestions, and participation, no matter who you are, where you live, and what you do. Please come forward if you want to support this humanitarian and social integration initiative in any way.
