In 1984, the founders of NYSDPC; constituted of 10 families officially established this organization to inculcate Indian values and traditions in their children and future generations growing up in USA; through religious festivities, cultural programs, a demonstration of warmth and hospitality to cultivate a genuine atmosphere of "barir pujo".
In the early days, the participants included friends and families of the founding members. They were like extended family coming together for the utsav. The participants have grown but the tradition of celebrating the puja like a 'barir puja' still continues.
The Executive Committee of the NYSDPC offers you heartfelt thanks for everything you have done and continue to do for the organization.
We hope to see you there this year as well.
What is that one thing, which is better than chai itself? Chai pe charcha! The NYSDPC Long Island’s committee members, kick-started the planning of their 35th year of celebrations, over some chai, chaats and pakoda. With some young members joining the bandwagon of the ever energetic and enthusiastic founders, the team is buzzing with new ideas and ways of making the Pujo a larger than life (if not, then at least larger than last time!!) event.
