About Purbasha


Why Purbasha?

Purbasha is the welcoming island in Atlanta for the Bengali émigré from India. We are a group of young, passionate and motivated Bengalis who feel proud of our heritage and culture, and organize many cultural and fun activities all around the year. We are the reason for you to feel confident that your children would grow up appreciating every nuance of being a Bengali, when you are in Atlanta. We are one of the significant reasons for you to favorably consider relocating to Atlanta, when you are making such decisions. Our strengths lie in the clarity of our vision, the transparency in our processes and the commitments we promise together. Please feel free to talk to one of our members to know more and convince yourself that you have now reached the most vibrant group of Bengalis in USA.

Purbasha Mission

Provide a sense of belonging to our great heritage and culture while we are away from home. Organize activities that are traditional and representative of our culture. Inculcate a sense of affinity, value, pride, belongingness, commitment and responsibility - the hallmarks of our culture - in our children

Purbasha Vision

Be recognized as the outstanding Bengali organization in the US. Create a permanent abode to serve the dual purposes of (1) a center to host, facilitate and coordinate Bengali cultural and social activities, and (2) A foyer to provide a peek into a microcosm of what our heritage and culture aspire and endure.

Purbasha Goals

Plan, organize and present activities and get together that relate to the cultural, seasonal and traditional aspects of Bengali Heritage. Organize fun-filled activities and picnics to share and enjoy quality time together. Support charitable intentions of Purbasha and other organizations to help alleviate the problems of under-privileged members of our community both in and outside of the US.
