Amader Pujo ( Annual Durga Puja Celebration)
The flagship event of KARBA, our Durga Puja celebration is reckoned as the largest & the most happening one in South Bangalore. organized every year over a period of five days from Maha Shashti to Vijaya Dashami at a 60,000 square feet enclosed venue. The celebration includes cultural programmes every evening, community activities, community feast over all five days and many more.
The Dhakiya Event, celebrated every year in the evening of Maha Navami, a proprietary event of Karba, and an extremely popular event among the resdents of South Bangalore, is a fusion of Dandiya Dance from Western India to the beats & frenzy of Dhak from the very heart of Bengal.     

Saraswati Puja (Vasant Panchami)

Saraswati Puja, yet another very important event in the life of every Bengali, is celebrated at KARBA every year in the morning of the Vasant Panchami day with the hymns & chants in worship of the Goddess of Knowledge, Saraswati. 
The evening lights up the spirits and hearts of one and all, breaking barriers and spreading joy in celebration of Spring with a grand cultural extravaganza performed by our very own talents.  A sumptuous and mouth-watering vegetarian buffet lunch is served at the venue post the Puja celebration & Pushpanjali. 

Borsha Baran ( The Felicitation of Monsoon)

Borsha Baran, another very popular annual cultural event of KARBA, is an endevor to follow the age-old Bengali tradition of ushering in the Monsoon. Celebrated during the month of June every year as the monsoon is about to set in, this cultural evening presents a bouquet of music, dance & recitation based programmes performed by our very own member community - especially the ladies and the young ones. The cultural evening is followed by a buffet dinner serving a number of culinary delicacies from Bengal.  

Laxmi Pujo

An event immediately followed by the Durga Puja, in the evening of Kojagari Purnima ( The auspicious full moon day). As per the tradition & culture of Bengal since centuries, we worship Maa Laxmi, the goddess of fortune & prosperity - both material & spiritual - on this day.
An intimate and more private celebration when we compare this evening with the magnificent celebration of Amader Puja, this is an evening for all KARBAites to spend a relaxed evening worshipping the Goddess, catching up with each other on small chit-chats and ending up the evening with a vegeterian dinner.  

Annual Picnic

KARBA annual picnic is a get-together of our members and their friends & relations where we celebrate an eventful day-out in an offsite location. In Bengali we call this 'Ban Bhojan' (a picninc in the wilderness). We leave for the destination early in the morning, with a bus-load of cheerful members, their family and friends, reach the spot and the fun begins. Both breakfast & lunch are cooked and served at the venue - the culinary delights in our very own Bengali style. The day is spent having short treks in the vicinity, engaging in outdoor sports, extempore Antaksharis and many such funful activities. We return by the evening with loads of unforgettable memories of the day and a longing for this day to come back the next year.
