For the past few years this Puja has been presenting a new theme each year which has created a firm place in millions of heart across the globe, likewise keeping the continuation going in this year 2021 our puja came up with a new line of thought Manobik. The Bhowanipur 75 Palli puja committee has decided to come to the aid of Chhau artistes of Purulia district, who have been badly hit by the lockdown. 'Chhau, a traditional dance form, has performers retelling episodes of Ramayana, Mahabharata and the puranas, donning colourful costumes and masks. They will depict a small village of Purulia and will bring the government enlisted Chhau dancers and their families to Kolkata.

Subir DasClub Secretary said, “We are dedicating this puja to kids & family members of Chhau artists in Purulia, donating a major share of the subscription and the state’s dole to them, along with making the premises available for them to perform and sell their goods. We have donated clothes to kids of 250 Chhau Dancers on the occasion of World Daughter’s Day at Charida Village in Purulia & will be also giving new clothes to the family members of 'Chhau' dancers by supporting 50-odd families during Durga Puja. This initiative is taken in keeping with the financial losses everyone is facing due to the pandemic. Many artistes and craftsmen are facing financial hardships as festivals and fairs have been called off across the country amid the pandemic. We are inspired by our CM Mamata Banerjee and will do our bit to help at least some of them.”
