Kanakpura Road Bengali Association (KARBA) has been formed of Bengalis and other culturally aligned people living in and around Kanakpura Road in Bangalore. This association was formed to pass on the legacy of Bengali culture to generations beyond, but it has evolved into an integrated melting pot of cultural experiences combining the ethnic Kannada practices into rich Bengali culture.
The flagship event of KARBA, our Durga Puja (a non profit community event) celebration is reckoned as the largest & the most happening one in South Bangalore, organized every year over a period of five days from Maha Shashti to Vijaya Dashami at a 60,000 square feet enclosed venue. The celebration includes cultural programmes every evening, community activities, community feast over all five days and many more. In a very short period of time our pujo, what we call as “AMADER PUJO” has become one of the most happening pujo in Bangalore. Our 7th year celebrations are happening at Elaan Convention Center, JP Nagar 7th Phase, Opp. Brigade Millennium. Uniqueness of our Pujo is called DHAKIYA which is an unique blend of eastern and western cultures of India, DHAKIYA is Dandiya embellished with Dhak.
An adda is a prominent leisurely activity and a form of intellectual exchange among Bengalis, and it traces back to regular intellectual dialogues prevalent in Ancient Greece at the time of Socrates or Plato. And where there is adda, there will be Goppo (meaning stories), both resulting in community fun. Everyday, KARBA members, sit in adda, compete in various competitions and delve in finger-licking food. The tempo and the level of fun keeps increasing till Vijaya Dashami, when KARBA ladies indulge in Sindoor Khela (vermillion) and then set off in grand fashion, singing and dancing for the immersion of the idols in water.
