This year Saikat celebrated the Saraswati puja virtually, on February 20th 2021. The Puja was broadcasted on Saikat's YouTube channel. Puja was followed by virtual Kids' talent show, a Painting workshop for kids, Antyakshari, and other cultural events. This year the painting workshop was based on the art style of iconic Indian painter, Padma Bhushan Jamini Roy. It was our small effort to create an opportunity for our kids to learn and appreciate Bengal’s cultural heritage and create some wonderful memories.
