Welcome to Parichoy | Hemanto Utsav 2009

Glimpses of Hemanto Utsav 2014

On 8th Nov 2014, we celebrated our fall gathering, Hemanta Utsav. While the weather was chill outside, we basked in the warmth of Parichoy family and friends. Our members, guest artists and friends from neighboring associations (BAGH, BAAC, Zhankar etc. put together a phenomenal show with various kinds of performances. Our little ones- mostly born and brought up in this country - did us proud with their perfect renditions of Bangla songs, recitations and dances. Our very talented adult performers rekindled our love of Bengali music, dance, and poetry. A short and sweet "Sruti Natok" ensured a good dose of laughter. Then our featured artist, KrishnaTithi Khan took stage. True to her reputation, she mesmerized us all with her zesty and melodious voice. The finale of the evening was a collective performance, in which many of our members and guest artists came together to weave an ode to the love of Bengal and everything Bengali. Their multifaceted talents in recitation, dance, vocal and instrumental music came together in a novel production called "Kothaye, Shure o Tale - A mori Bangla". We concluded the evening with a scrumptious dinner, catered by Zaruka and Tabaq-e-masala restaurants.

A time for Thanks: First and foremost, sincere thanks are due to all Performers , right from the junior-most Elina (3 and half years) to our seniormost, revered Shivajida and Sudhangsuda. Their time and efforts dedicated to preparation was evident in their performances.

While the EC and subcommittee members did their part in their tireless efforts to organize this function, success is never achieved until all hands meet. Sincere thanks to all of you who came forward to help, including but not limited to:

- Srirupa Ray for helping with stage decorations,
- Mousumi Ghosh (for deftly registering 50+ participants),
- Ashok Bhattacharya and Subroto Roy for helping with registration,

- Arindam Guha, Suman De, Arindam Chakravarty, Ashok Bhattacharya, Pameli Basak, Archisman Ghosh and several others who helped with food arrangements;
- Animesh Chandra & Vivekbrata Basu for continuously helping with stage and sound track logistics.

A special shout-out to Pinky De, who has been conscientiously and very efficiently managing our inventory of disposables and plasticware for several years, and ensuring that we were always well-stocked for every event. Thanks to Sharmila Chakravarty for taking up this critical responsibility from Pinky.

We are grateful to our sponsors, namely BMNA (CT chapter), Hanif Mohammed, Mir Azam, Gopal Sarcar, Saukat Khan and Avijit Mitra. And we save for the end our biggest thanks to Mr. Prabal Ghosh, who came new to Parichoy and took charge of managing entire audio support throughout the program.
