Durga Puja clothes distribution at New Light

Autumn is finally here and so are the festivities. One such festival that is celebrated with great zest and high spirits is Durga Puja the worship of energy and Shakti in the form of the universal mother Durga. The five days of festivities during DURGA PUJA are like no other any where else in the world. It is bigger than the Mardi Gras and crazier than the Oktoberfest! This is also the time when people and communities come together to show support and love for each other. No one goes home hungry or without at least one piece of new garment as a gift during these days. The children and all whose lives are touched by New Light Kolkata are acknowledged in love and sharing. This year amidst much difficulty and many challenges the children and women were showered with unconditional love and affection by a huge group of people, generous souls, who have filled the hearts of the kids with more joy than they can hold. We at New Light Kolkata are overwhelmed with such outpouring of generosity , love and commitment.
