Saraswati Puja 2009

Saraswati Puja would be held in National Games Village (NGV) campus, on the courtyard adjoining the NGV Builder's Club, Koramangala. After entering NGV campus (from either direction) proceed towards NGV Builder's Club and just before hitting the club you will see the venue on your right.

How can Saraswati Puja be complete without songs and music!! That's why we're starting from this year an evening cultural program on the day of Saraswati Puja.

The main attraction of the evening is a performance by Anupam Roy, an engineer by profession but also a lyricist and composer of dazzling originality and exciting promise. His songs combine youthful emotions with sophisticated poetic imagery, and Indian melodic base with western chord progressions, to create a new flavor in contemporary Bengali music. He will perform with his band comprising of Arun Das on drums, Sandeep Mitra on keyboards, Priyam Mukherjee on bass and vocals & Anupam Roy on vocals & acoustic guitar.

People who had come on time for the Bhoomi show on Kali Puja in 2008 would have seen them performing just before Bhoomi took the stage. Soumitra, the drummer of Bhoomi, was so impressed with their performance that he accompanied them on drums for all the songs.
