Our AwardsIt is a matter of pride for us that since its inception, our club SURUCHI SANGHA which was established in 1952, has kept up a glorious tradition of promoting Sports, engaging in social work and also a host of cultural activities. It is a great achievement on our part that two of our club members namely Sri. Sayashree Banerjee and Sri. Krishna Tarafdar have represented India in Volleyball in the 1982 ASIAD. In addition to Volleyball, at present we have facilities to instruct Karate, and Yoga. In the field of social work we have an enviable record where we have done substantial work like helping victims of Thalassaemia; providing financial support to the hermaphrodites who are probably the most deprived section of our society; to provide books for the poor children, helping five poor girls every year to get them married etc.


In addition to this Blood and Eye donation camps are organized on a regular basis. Our club also maintains a hearse (dead body carrier) for the benefit of the people of South Calcutta. For other details see our page on Social Work. In the field of Cultural activities, Suruchi Sangha has acquired fame not only in West Bengal but across the whole country with its unique format of celebration of Durga Puja. Over the years our club has come to acquire the No.1 slot amongst the Puja organizers of Kolkata. People have been found queuing up for hours to get a glimpse of our Puja because they feel that unless you have seen Suruchi's Puja, your darshan of Pujas is incomplete.


As a part of our unique format of celebration, every year we choose a particular state and showcase its culture, its music, its dance forms, its people and its arts. The Pujas have been inaugurated by the Chief Ministers of the respective states or if he is unavailable, by the Cultural or Tourism Ministers of such states. It is matter of irony that though our attention is mainly focused on the sports and activities relating to social work, Suruchi has acquired fame for its celebration of Durga Puja which is a small part of our activities.


I take this opportunity to showcase through this website the various activities undertaken by our Club. It is our endeavor that Suruchi will emerge as a name to reckon with in the sphere of social work, sports and cultural activities.
