Dear Friends,

Welcome to 34th Durga Puja of BASC in 2012.

We have waited all year long for this auspicious moment in anticipation of

being filled with joy and divine peace that accompany both our worship and our

festivities. Together let us pray and enjoy every single moment of this

celebration with our families and friends. Let us forgive and forget all our

differences and come together in worshipping Ma Durga.

BASC's rich cultural heritage goes back more than 40 years. This year we made the very first

attempt of documenting this heritage as milestones. We have contacted all past presidents who

helped create this milestone document. We thank all of them for their time and effort. This

document is included in the brochure and will be on display during the Pujas. We realize that this

is a work in progress and your input will make this document even richer.

BASC, Southern California's oldest and largest Bengali Organization, is like a large family – we

support each other in every facet of life and come to each other's aid in crises. To embrace new

members to the BASC family, we have instituted a New Members Welcome Committee this year.

This committee will bring new members together with existing members and make them feel

welcome in the community. I would request every member to help a new member and make him/

her feel at home. Remember, there was a day when we all were new in this community and new

friends enriched our lives and gave us a sense of belonging.

Our goal is to keep BASC open and transparent so that every member feels that he/she owns a part

of BASC. To attain this goal we have started conducting surveys after each program/event

collecting and documenting members’ inputs. We want to hear from all of you and take your

valuable inputs into consideration while making decisions in the future.

We began this year on an auspicious note: rejoicing in the rich Bengali culture of Kirtan and Sri

Chaitanya, we celebrated Dol/Holi (Festival of Colors) in Bharat Sevashram Sangha temple and

donated the proceeds to the temple. This was followed by two highly successful cultural programs:

in April, Ghazals by Sougata Banerjee was received with overwhelming appreciation and in June

another great classical program by Pandit Ajoy Chakraborty was also highly successful. We also

had our annual, fun-filled picnic in April. We plan to bring in 2013 with a joyous New Year's Eve

Party!

Extending our the cultural participation, we partnered with several community organizations such

as Ektaa Center and Music Circle. We collaborated in hosting cultural programs and increased

audience participation beyond the Bengali community which resulted in mutual benefit and

garnered greater recognition of BASC as a cultural organization.

These programs and events would not have been possible without your donation. BASC truly

appreciates all its sponsors who have been supporting us generously and have been doing so for

many years. Lastly, BASC's success is due to its hard working and dedicated volunteers. A big

salute and a huge THANK YOU to all our volunteers without whom it would not have been possible

to organize this year’s programs and events.

We wish each and everyone of you a great Durga Puja and Shubho Bijoya.

On behalf of Team BASC, Deep Ghosh, President

Ashis Ranjan Ghosh, born on 15 th of July, 1947, lost his

long battle with cancer at the age of 64, on June 12, 2012.

Ashis, nick named Mistu, grew up in a family of nine

brothers and sisters, under the care of a devoted mother

and an idealist father. He attended Indian Institute of

Technology and later immigrated to the United States,

following a brief stay in West Berlin. Ashis worked for

several companies in his long career as an accomplished

engineer, including American Airlines’ maintenance base

in Tulsa, Oklahoma. His latest employment was at Christie

Digital (Parent company Ushio America) in Cypress,

California. While working at Christie he filed for a US

Patent, and following a long process, he was awarded the

patent in 2010. His successful career aside, he had

unsurpassed devotion and care for his wife and two sons.

He also was the most loyal of friends. Ashis was and will

remain in our hearts, a beloved father, a cherished

husband, and an irreplaceable friend.

Sarod : Pt Tejendra Narayan - Friday, October 26, 10:00PM

Tabla

Pandit Tejendra Narayan Majumdar is one of the best

-known sarod players of the present generation, He

has achieved the combination of excellence and

popular acceptability, which ensure one's place in

posterity. Tejendra is a pupil of two world-renowned

stalwarts of Indian Classical music, the Late Ustad

Bahadur Khan and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. One of the

best equipped musicians to carry on the Senia

Maihar mantle, Tejendra combines the technical

virtuosity of his gharana with an extraordinary tone,

touch and an ambient melody which transcends any

qualification. Above all, he has in abundant measure,

that indescribable ability to take the listeners along

with him - the rare quality that is the hallmark of

genius. He is also a Top Grade artist of A.I.R and

DOORDARSHAN. Within India, he is a regular artist

in the premiere concert circuit, while in Europe,

Canada and in the United States, his popularity has

ensured his regular representation in some of the

Meghdoot - Saturday, October 26, 8:30 PM

Meghdoot (Meghdootam in Sanskrit) is perhaps the most famous creation of

poet Kalidas. Written in unique Mandakranta rhythm around 4th Century,

Meghdootam expresses the yearning of a newly married love-struck Yaksha

who has been exiled by his master in 111 shlokas. Yaksha befriends a

passing cloud (Megh) and asks Megh to take his passionate message to his

beloved. Yaksha also describes what Megh will see during his journey.

Since then Meghdoot has been translated in numerous languages and has

influenced many poets, including recently departed famous Bengali poet

Joydeb Basu, who wrote his own version of Meghdoot from a very different

context. Other notable poets who wrote on similar themes include

Rabindranath Tagore, Satyendranath Dutta, Narendra Deb, Naresh Guha,

and Buddhadeb Bose, to name a few.

As we joined hands in the journey of Meghdoot, we realized that the yearning

of separated lovers have held a special place in the hearts of Indians for

centuries, and the dimensions have added color to the pathos it evokes in the

reader. The lovers have called upon the cloud messenger in their effort to

reach the unreachable. North Indian monsoons have brought enough cloud

and rain that intensified the pain of separation and loneliness. In this

program we shall embark on a journey with Meghdoot and touch a few souls.

We shall experience how Meghdoot has influenced human emotions through

a wide spectrum of emotions through space and time.

Ek Shaam Pancham Ke Naam - October 28, 5:30 PM

This year an ensemble cast of local performers have come

together to pay tribute to one of Bollywood’s greatest

composer Rahul Dev Burman, fondly known as Panchamda.

In a multimedia extravaganza featuring over 35 musicians,

singers, dancers, anchors, models, along with live band,

light, sound and video, we will take you through an

extraordinary journey of Panchamda’s life, his hit

compositions and his awesome music. This legendary

composer has given music to over 357 films, numerous

private Bengali and Hindi albums, and even to this day, his

songs have been remixed the most. We hope to put up a magical show showing

the diversity of his music, from classical compositions to beautiful melodies

and the foot tapping evergreen hits.

Maha Bharat– Drama by Pathsala - November 3, 8:15 PM

Yes, the story really comes from the ancient epic. What? wait, no, not all of

it. We took liberty to tweak and sometimes completely change the ancient

plot ! Gone are the serious dialogs and complicated themes. Instead we have

the blind king offering beach-front villa to pacify Durjodhon, "Red Hot"

Droupadi swaying on stage, and even lord Krishna struggling to hold on to

his own. The actors sing in tunes of popular songs - from nursery rhymes to

Kirtan to raucous Bollywood tunes; but they tell the story of Arjun and

Durjodhon and Karno - in inimitable Pathsala way. Don't miss this hilarious

production by Pathsala students on Laxmi Puja night.
