It's that 'ANANDA&' making 'PUZA' to take shape of a social art form


Send this eCard !Though I don't believe in any religion I have love for Vaisnabite School of Hindu religion. Because It speaks about selfless surrender to a greater cause.As Geeta Says, "Kormonye Badhikaroste Ma Pholeshu Kodachon. . ." Oposit to that the Sokti or Tantrik School of Hindusm is all about 'Wish Fulfilment' which only make man and their God selfish. None of them do anything without any cost. I've hatred for Hindu Bengali's in General for not giving Due Honour to the teachings of Sri Chaitanya and Nityanada. I hate to recognize that 'Durga Puza' is the 'National Festival' of the Bengalis. Less than half of total Bengali population on the earth observe it.
But, one had to recognise that the way 'Puza' evolved in course of time it has little to do with religion or religious believe now a day. Any festival always has a greater social significance. It goes beyond its ritualistic beliefs or philosophy. Society needs festivals for its own survival. I remember, in the first part of Nineties, once one of my friend from Kolkata wrote letter to me asking, How can People observe puza when Thousand of our countryman is fighting for existence in Latur, in Maharastra after the severe earthquake their. My reply was, if we stop to observe festivals than how these people can will be motivated for the struggle of existence? Why should they struggle for survival on the earth if there is no festival at all? If there is no 'ANANDA' at the end.
It's that 'ANANDA' making 'PUZA' to take shape of a social art form like 'BORDIN' or 'BRZILIAN CARNIVAL' .EID of Islam failed here. That's why I too can't resist being the part of the spirit. But, I would have been happy enough if all the Bengalis try to replace 'PUZA' with NAVAVARSH or 'POILA BOISHAKH'. In India it appears like distant dream. But, In Bangladesh people are trying to do so. Assamese Bihu is a unique example of a secular Community festival. But, the Dates or days chosen by the various Bihu organisers are killing the social essence of the festival. Those should be fixed for all.
