Welcome to Swisspuja :)
It's great that you want to stay in touch with your roots, away from home.
Swisspuja holds a number of events through the year, as follows:
- • Rabindra Jayanti/Esho Hey Baisakh in April/May.
- • Prabhat Pheri, on the occasion of Rabindranath Thakur’s birthday, on a weekend morning, on the banks of Lake Zurich.
- • Members picnic in summer.
- • Durga Puja, as per schedule followed in Kolkata. It is a full 5 day celebration.
- • General Body Meeting of members to go over the year’s activities and finances and elect the next Executive Committee.
You can visit the Gallery section of this website to see photos of past events.
To participate in these activities, including as a spectator, one needs to be a Swisspuja member. The minimum annual membership fee is CHF 100, which includes your family here or if anyone of your family happen to be visiting you from outside Switzerland during any of these events. We have nominal cover charges for non-Puja events – eg for Esho Hey Boisakh (2022) it was CHF 6 per adult.
All communication with members is through email and supported by the Swisspuja Community whatsapp group chat (posts by admin only). As soon as the money is paid, your email is added to the membership list and you will have the option of joining the Swisspuja Community whatsapp chat. All registration for events is through the homepage of www.swisspua.org. We also have an active facebook page, ‘Swisspuja’.
