This year Saikat is going to celebrate the Saraswati puja virtually, on February 20th, 2021. The Puja will be broadcasted on Saikat's YouTube channel       . The puja broadcast will be followed by Kids' talent show, a Painting workshop for kids, Antyakshari, and other cultural events.

 

Every year Saraswati puja is the time when we celebrate the budding talents of our Saikat family on stage. However, due to the present restrictions, they are coming together online. After the puja, please join us on our YouTube channel to enjoy the power-packed performance by our little performers.

This year the painting workshop is based on the art style of iconic Indian painter, Padma Bhushan Jamini Roy. Ms. Shruti Ghatak, a renowned Painter, and art teacher has graciously agreed to offer us an interactive Zoom Art Session for this event. This brings a unique opportunity to our kids to learn and appreciate our Bengal’s cultural heritage and create some wonderful memories.

The next attraction is the grand cultural program where members of our own Saikat family are coming together to entertain you with their performances which includes a Nabanita Deb Sen's comedy 'Elizabethan System' directed by Kalyani Ghosh. ‘Dekhi Banglar Mukh’ (দেখি বাংলার মুখ) a portrayal of Bengali culture, heritage and History directed by Manisha Maiti, a dance performance depicting ‘Radha Krishna Biroho’ (রাধা কৃষ্ণ বিরহ) by Siya Sit and a fun filled talk show 'Lockdown-e Jhal ebong Nonta' (Lockdown এ ঝাল এবং নোনতা).
