For Bengalis living abroad, celebrating Durga Puja has always been an integral part of their lives. But then, they celebrate almost every festival just like us. This year, when everything suddenly came to a halt because of the pandemic, members of Frankfurt Adi Sarbojonin, a 40-years old Bengali association celebrating Durga Puja in Germany, decided to celebrate Rabindra Jayanti in their own style. They organised an online programme with participation of people across all age groups.
The group members recorded their performances — dance, music and drama — and uploaded on social media, so that Bengalis across the globe can enjoy it. The programme was conducted by designated anchors. “Initially, we thought we won’t be able to celebrate Rabindra Jayanti this year, but as we decided to do it on digital platform, things got very easy,” said one of the organisers
