The puja committee is full of young people and they are working hard to present a part of Tibet in true sense to the spectators. They always hope for awards for their innovativeness but they are more happy with the blessings of spectators.

They are environmentally very conscious so they have not taken life of any tree of the area in expense of puja pandal and lighting. Also they are taking care of energy saving, fire protection as well as maintain their environment. They are doing lots of social work. They are running a organization “Lonely Heart” to help old people. They are donating in funds to help under priviledged people. They also helps poor students.
