Closer to home, there are at least 60 Durga Puja celebrations held in UK, with a significant number being concentrated in and around London.
Although Aylesbury is located within the hinterland of London, its residents have so far been deprived of the opportunity to celebrate this grand annual event. That is about to change, thanks primarily to the initiative taken by three friends, who have succeeded in quickly capturing the interest of an eager community and gaining significant momentum aimed at organising a successful event in its maiden year.
All the organisers of the core committee formed to steer this event come with prior experience of organising these celebrations, either as part of communities elsewhere in UK or in India or in Bangladesh. This provides us with the confidence that the initiative is in safe hands.
Although this is the inaugural instance, as far as Aylesbury is concerned, it has generated a lot of interest within the Asian diaspora across Aylesbury Vale – c. 15,000 as per last Census (2021).
