The challenges faced by us in 2020, still continue to impact our lives although at slightly reduced levels.
Keeping the ongoing pandemic situation and the guidelines into consideration, we have decided to conduct this year's NASKA Kali Puja with limited in-person attendance.

Our ticket booking window is now closed

There will strictly be no walk-ins at this time to keep the headcount within limit.

Priest of Kalipuja 2021 - Shri Samiran Chakroborty

It is with utmost pleasure and great honor we announce that this year's Kali Puja will be performed by the famous and renowned Goddess Kali Priest, Shri Samiran Chakroborty of NY Kali Mandir. Mr. Chakroborty is a full time priest of the NY Kali Mandir since 2011. He received his Baccalaureate from Burdwan University and completed Pourahittya[Yaginiki] from Paschim Banga Vedic Academy of Kolkata. Mr. Chakroborty was also associated with Sanskrit Parishad of Hooghly.

Before coming to the USA, Mr. Chakroborty has performed the famous Durga Puja of Raja Krishna Chandra Ghosh in Chandannagar for 10 years. He is accredited to be one of the chosen few who have performed the only Mahisha Mardini puja in Chinsurah. He has performed Kalipuja in various Shaktipiths of West Bengal including Tarapith and Khyapi Maa of Birbhum. In New York, Mr. Chakroborty teaches Bengali to young kinds on a regular basis. Since 2011, he has been performing Mahalaya in NY Kali Mandir where the recitation of Shree Shree Chandi is performed by him.

We are happy that we are able to meet the requests made by many devotees and NASKA sponsors. Please come and join the worship of Goddess Kali to be led by one of the the most respected priests in the New York/New Jersey area, Mr. Samiran Chakroborty from New York Kali Mandir.

Dinner Arrangement

Considering the COVID related restrictions and the safety of all those who wish to attend, we have decided to conduct this year’s Kali Puja, at a scale much smaller than the previous years.

As always, conducting the Pujo ceremony is the prime focus for this year. We will provide Bhog / Prasad to the devotees at the venue, after the Puja and Pushpanjali is over.

However, dinner will be handed over in boxes packed at the venue and will needed to be consumed outside the puja premises.

Because of the COVID restrictions, we couldn’t arrange a larger venue with separate areas for Puja and dinner. Keeping our religious sentiment in mind, we want to avoid serving dinner in the same room where “Maa-er Pujo” will be conducted. Hence, we had to take this difficult decision of making the dinner boxes at the venue and handing them over to devotees on their way out.

Once again, we convey our deepest gratitude to you all for your unending support.
