Meet our Doshobhujas of Bengal

Prega News brings to you an amazing platform where the goddesses of our neighbourhood can showcase their talents to become 'Parar Doshobhuja’. We are inviting all the Puja Committees to nominate the most talented women from their localities.


  • Durga Puja is that time of the year when Bengalis all around the world bring a new meaning to devotion, worship and celebration. The festival is celebrated to pay homage to the Hindu goddess Devi Durga and is also celebrated because of Devi Durga’s victory over Mahishasur. The aroma of the festive air, the beat of the dhaks, the chants of the mantras, and the grand décor of the pandals bring the feeling of home in everyone’s hearts.
  • To make this merrier, Prega News is here with a competition in your para to select the Prega News Parar Doshobhuja from your district.
  • Doshobhuja literally signifies goddess Durga but this complies with the multiple avatars of a common woman as well. A woman plays the role of a mother, a daughter, a wife, a colleague, a friend and while these are just simple relationships she plays in her life, there is more to her.
  • She is a fighter, a provider, a life bearer, a source of love, a source of togetherness.
  • In short, she is multitalented.
