Holiday season is here again! Bichitra celebrated the holidays on Dec. 12 with a fun filled magical evening party. Kids and adults enjoyed the great food, wonderful holiday décor in the company of Santa Claus, who came down to Troy from an unknown location. The evening concluded with a wonderful magic show and Bingo game. My sincere thanks to Mousumi Majumdar and her team for organizing such a great event.
With the year quickly drawing to a close, it is a good time to take a few moments to reflect upon our past year. We have had many successful programs. I am so grateful to our volunteers who have spent countless hours to make our events a grand success. We came together as an extended family to celebrate things we value as a community. I would like to see more participation from our younger members. A challenge for our executive committee is to make Bichitra more relevant to our next generation in our quest to preserve and promote the rich cultural heritage of Bengal.
I wish you and your loved ones much happiness and good health this holiday season and throughout the New Year.
Thank you and Best Regards, Hirak Chanda
President of Bichitra 2014-2015
