This year they are arising social awareness by the theme itself as they are making the puja against usage of plastic as plastic is a curse to the human civilization.

They usually obey all the regulations by the Government and using environment friendly materials and fire protected items.

Since they are using plastic as main component of decoration this year, they are spraying all the components with fire protection spray.

Not only that, they always do some work for the good self of the society. They arrange blood donation camps. At the time of puja, they try to give food to the poor people. They try to finance as many as poor students to continue their study. At the same time they give clothes and books to financially challenged class.
