Pujari has been successfully and enthusiastically quenching the cultural thirst of the Atlanta Bengali community for more than a decade. Started by a group of highly energetic and passionate volunteers living in and around Atlanta, Pujari began as a convention to celebrate the culture and rich heritage of India to fulfill the nostalgic affinity.
A nonprofit, nonpolitical, socio-cultural organization, Pujari of Atlanta was formed to foster friendship and understanding between the people of Bengali origin, Indian origin, and the Americans in 1986 and was finally incorporated as a nonprofit tax-exempt organization since 2001. From the very inception, the organization has enjoyed absolute loyalty and patronage of most of the Bengali families in metropolitan Atlanta and its neighboring states like Tennessee, Florida, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Arkansas. It conducts, coordinates, and promotes the community, cultural and socio-religious activities among the people of Indian origin in the USA and the people of other cultures on behalf of the Bengali community.
Pujari entered into an unprecedented growth path ever since the induction of a large population of young volunteers into the organization. Due to overwhelming support and cooperation from the community youth, Pujari has been organizing several popular activities like Annual Picnic, Tennis Tournament, and News Year's Eve Celebrations every year.
