But right from the first year, we have received overwhelming support from everyone around. ARBA is about people. They are our ethos, our energy and our passion that results in such stupendous events. Their annual Durga Puja, called as AMADER PUJO is the most happening Durga Puja in South Bangalore not only due to members and patrons, but also due to the great cultural interest shown by people living in & around Kanakpura Road.

KARBA is a bunch of extremely enthusiastic friends, who are blessed with a boisterous association of great people. Yes, all Bengali, and hence they have come together to celebrate the culture, the food and the bonhomie of Bengal and areas around us. But have also grown to adopt Karnataka as their home, and are doing theie best to contribute to the cultural profile of the people around.

Apart from annual get-togethers and picnics and general add, they celebrate Saraswati Puja & Lakshmi Puja with full fervor. They also celebrate the rains in our annual Barsha Baran. But our marquee program is the annual Sarbajanin Durga Puja called as AMADER PUJO. Every year we are host to the most happening Durga Puja in South Bangalore.

AMADER PUJO is not just a Durga Puja, it is celebration of the ethos of what is Bengali. Thus have Fun, Food, Adda, Goppo and of course cultural programs in the evening. One of greatest achievements is the establishment of SAPTAPADI, their own cultural troupe that practices and presents exemplary emotions of Bengal, be it the exemplary expressions of Gurudev’s writings, or the golden melody of Salil Chowdhury, Saptapadi is a troupe that has come of age. Their patron have come to expect exquisite quality from the organizers each year Saptapadi performs on Maha Shashthi.

In 2016, as AMADER PUJO celebrates 5 years, theymove from Grounds at Jaraganahalli to ELAAN Convention Center in the middle of JP Nagar’s bustling residential area, KARBA’s AMADER PUJO 2016 has become the largest Durga Puja in Bangalore today.
