We at Team Utsav have embarked on a holy quest to manifest the fervour of festivities onto the virtual world, transcending the boundaries of distance, thereby ensuring a unique experience for everyone.

On that note, we present before you, “Sarodanjali, Sarod Samman 2021”, wherein the mesmerizing flavours of the best Durga Pujas from all over India will be on display for the world to see and enjoy . All the puja committees will have their verified profiles and can post pictures and upload of their respective idols and decorations, on our app, which will then be viewed by our substantial user base of 10K+ users, spread across the globe. The mission of our event is to capture the vibrant spirit of Durga Pujo and carry it to the remotest corners of the world, using the digital space as our medium.

The event itinerary is as follows:-

Exclusive Events

Youtube Campaign highlighting our venture by 5 Eminent Bengali Content Creators (subject to sponsorship) .

Going hand in hand with these events is our plan for a social outreach programme. We believe in the motto of “Festivals for all” and have formulated a few campaigns to further it.

“One dress less, One smile more”

This campaign basically requests people to set aside the cost of one dress and instead of using it to buy something, donate the money to our fund. We will match their contribution to make this Pujo a bit different for the vulnerable sections in a designated area. This effort of ours will be done in collaboration with an NGO.

Bhog Bitoron Shomaroho

Our aim through this exercise is to utilize the bhog made by the pujo committees, coordinate with them, and serve the bhog to underprivileged people in designated areas. This minimizes wastage of food and ensures that these people do not miss out on a very integral part of Durga Pujo.
