"North Bombay Sarbojanin Durga Puja Samiti Will Go Virtual, Says Deb Mukherjee".

The oldest Durga Puja in Mumbai, popularly known as North Bombay Sarbojanin Durga Puja Samiti for the first time will go virtual, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Veteran actor and organizer of the Puja Deb Mukherjee confirmed the news.
Deb said, “This year puja will be different as compared to the previous years. We have not kept any blog, prasad, or entertainment. We want to keep the crowd away so that nobody gets affected by the COVID-19”  
“Only members will be allowed to do the Puja. And that also on alternate days. This year celebrations are low key due to the deadly novel coronavirus pandemic. Social distancing, wearing masks, gloves, and proper sanitization is the need of the hour to keep the virus at bay” added veteran actor Deb.
The auspicious occasion of Durga Puja begins this year from October 22 and will last till 26 of this month. The 5-day long festivity holds greater significance for the Bengali community worldwide. Durga Puja and Sharad or Sharadiya Navratri coincide and are widely celebrated not just in the country but abroad by Indian diaspora as well.
This year they have scaled down the idol from 25ft to 4ft. The venue has been shifted to a small hall in Santa Cruz. Elder members are requested to stay home. In fact, members are allowed to visit the pandal in small batches adhering to social distancing norms.
It is to be noted that several Bollywood celebrities such as Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Ayan Mukerji, Tanishaa Mukerji, veteran actress Tanuja, and other TV personalities regularly visit the North Bombay pandal during Durga Puja.
