In 2017, for the first time ever, the Assamese people residing in Noida, Greater Noida and Ghaziabad had come together to celebrate Durga Puja, the Assamese way.

And from the start, the NADA members decided to celebrate Durga Puja in Sector 119 in the most traditional way.

The pandal was covered with white clothes to ensure that the rays of the moon don’t get to touch the Goddess.

And it is the third year in a row that the members of NADA again celebrating Durga Puja with all pomp and gaiety but in the most traditional way.
