Mission: For over 30 years now, we have represented the Bengali community of the Dallas/ Ft Worth metropolis.

Our fundamental objectives are: To organize cultural events, socio-religious functions and activities, which provide exposure to the culture, heritage and traditions of Bengal To promote and sustain religious, charitable, educational and literary activities on behalf of the Bengali community To provide a forum for exchanging ideas and views with various national and international organizations of similar interests We are committed to sustaining and promoting our culture and heritage, supporting the society we live in and reinforcing our future generation with meaningful values. We strive to keep our rich culture and heritage alive through various religious events, social and educational activities and cultural programs throughout the year. We run an autonomous Bengali language school, to provide our kids the unique opportunity to learn and maintain proficiency in the language. We conduct regular fund raising activities for our community support and social service goals to assist the needy in India, Bangladesh and the United States. We renew our festive spirits, following true Bengali traditions - our celebrations of Durga Puja in fall, Saraswati Puja in spring are attended in large numbers. We attempt to bring the community together and keep them actively involved in various social events throughout the year - whether it is the Bengali New Year, our summer picnic gala, or the year-end dine-n-dance party. We have consistently been among the most culturally active cities in the United States, regularly hosting popular artists from India, screening popular Bengali movies and presenting high-quality cultural programs by local talents of all ages.

Let us transport you to somewhere in North Kolkata long long time ago, when little girls wore sarees and the little boys wore dhotis. They played outside till the street lamps were lit, and the sound of conch shells marked the end of their playtime. "Kobir Lorai " depicts one such evening where battle rap meets play time. Watch to find out who wins.

I am excited to bring to you "MEERA". Dance form - Indian Contemporary Dance Song - Saiyyan by Kailash Kher Bhaav or emotion of the song - Absolute Capitulation Choreography - Adrija Datta SUBSCRIBE @ https://tinyurl.com/rztzkxe Meera Bai was a 16th century mystic poetess and devotee of Krishna. She has always been a remarkable personality who invokes awe in me. Her love for Krishna was other-wordly, invincible. Meera was a rebellion against conventional restrictive norms that sought to regulate and control women's lives. She was condemned by feudal society for such acts of deviation, yet Meera still remains honoured and revered, till date venerated as a saint, in the cultural consciousness of the people. https://youtu.be/NGseY5R7zQk
