Listening to Mahalaya in the USA

Durga Puja, 2004 is just around the corner and for all us who have grown up in West Bengal, there is no sweeter sound than hearing the mantras and songs early in the morning on the day of Mahalaya, which marks the official beginning of the Pujas. Ever since I have lived in the USA, I have always missed this important event every year. This year, it turns out, is going to be quite different :). There are a couple of ways in which you can listen to the Mahalaya event this year:

(1). On FM Radio – 90.1 FM in the Bay Area, this Wednesday (10/11/2004) at 6:00 am. This is a show which is conducted by one of our friends (Mamta) and she wants to play the Mahalaya mantras and songs in her program. This is the site for her program http://kzsu.org/~btb/

(2). Streaming on the Internet :

The above program will also be streamed live. So, you can listen to that at

Other sites where the Mahalaya will be streamed online are:

Happy listening !
