The spirit of Bengal’s festive season does not end with Durgapuja; rather, it has just begun as the Kalipuja and Dipawali celebration approaches. News18 Network always captures the true spirit and colour of the festival with innovative programs delivering quality content. Continuing this approach, News18 Bangla’s flagship property Alor Utsav will provide the most comprehensive coverage of the Kalipuja and Dipawali festivals this year.
Kalipuja is celebrated in spectacular ways in many parts of West Bengal. This year News18 will felicitate the best four Kalipuja celebrations in the state under the different categories of Best Mandap, Best idol, Best ambiance, and judge’s choice. An independent panel comprising experts from the art and culture industry of Bengal will act as judges.
In order to capture the spirit of Dipawali, News18 Bangla will broadcast celebrations from across the state. During the day, News18 Bangla will cover Kalipuja and Dipawali stories from various districts of Bengal and in the evening Arati from several puja pandals and temples will be aired live.
The special programs under the News18 Bangla Alor Utsav will be the perfect alternative for the people at a time when the Covid positive numbers are increasing in Bengal as they may experience the festival of Kalipuja and Dipawali from the comfort and safety of their homes.
