Dear BAM Friends and families,

Hope all of you are safe and well.

Reminding you of  virtual Saraswati Puja on Saturday, February 13th starting at 10:00 AM.  Those who want to do the puja at home, please have the fruits, flowers and other items (please see the attached list of ingredients and guidelines) needed for puja ready before 10 AM, so that we can start the puja preparation at 10. If you are planning to offer Anjali (at 12:30 pm), please have a few flowers ready at your home. Contact  Amalendu Bagchi (amsubagchi@hotmail.com) if you have any question on  Puja details

In the afternoon (3-6 PM), we will have an online cultural program to be coordinated by Arkadipta Bakshi (arka.bakshi@gmail.com). The deadline to rsvp for participation in cultural program is over. We have quite a few responses. Please contact Arko if you have questions.
