এই সংস্থা যে পথ অনুসরণ করে চলবে, তার লক্ষ্য হবে বাঙালি সংস্কৃতি ও বাংলা সাহিত্য যাতে মার্কিন যুক্তরাষ্ট্রে পরিচিতি ও সেইসঙ্গে আরো উৎকর্ষতা লাভ করে, তার জন্যে সচেষ্ট হওয়া; তাছাড়া সংস্থা তৎপর হবে মার্কিন যুক্তরাষ্ট্রে, মার্কিনি তথা অ-মার্কিনি সংস্থাগুলির সঙ্গে উত্তরোত্তর দৃঢ়তর মৈত্রী সম্পর্কে আবদ্ধ হয়ে তাদের সঙ্গে সংস্কৃতিক যোগাযোগ রক্ষা করে চলতে। সংস্থা চায় উত্তরপূর্ব ওহাইও অঞ্চলে বসবাসকারী বঙ্গভাষাভাষীদের ও তাদের বন্ধুবান্ধবদের মিলনকেন্দ্র হয়ে উঠতে; সুযোগ সৃষ্টি করতে, যাতে এই অঞ্চলের বঙ্গভাষাভাষীরা সপরিবারে ও সবান্ধবে বাংলা ভাষা চর্চা করতে পারেন, বাঙালি সংস্কৃতি ও তার ঐতিহাসিক ধারাটির সঙ্গে পরিচিত হতে পারেন। সংস্থা তার কোনো কাজেই মুনাফা অন্বেষণ না করে সদস্যদের মিলন-সংঘ রূপে বিরাজ করবে। সংস্থা কখনো কোনো প্রকার ব্যবসায় লিপ্ত হবে না, কোনো বিশেষ সম্প্রদায় বা দলের অনুগত হবেন না। সংস্থার অনুসৃত পথের বিরোধী কোনও প্রকার দলগত স্বার্থে সংস্থা অথবা তার কর্মনির্বাহী সদস্যের নাম ব্যবহার করা চলবে না।

Baisakhi Sandhya

  • MAR 29, 2018
  • Executive Committee

We are just a month away from what promises to be an evening full of fun and festivities on the joyous occasion of Baisakhi.

The delectably chosen songs of Tagore and Nazrul, to the lively beats of Adhunik songs, the delightfully choreographed dance sequences and the timeless poems of our folklore, will surely transport you to the shores of Bengal.

Whether it’s a familiar face to greet, a new friend to meet, or talk to someone you share your roots with, BCS enables us all to celebrate such occasions we have cherished since our childhood with our family and friends. So, don’t hold yourself back, and come celebrate Baisakhi with us. You will have a blast!

We would like to once again thank all the members who have renewed their annual membership for 2018. Your overwhelming support, membership and generous donations help us put together programs throughout the year, and as your committee members, we will strive to do our best to make this and other events we host in 2018, memorable for you.

Executive committee members will be contacting you through emails in preparation for this event, and we will have more details of the event for you as we draw closer to the event date.

Look forward to seeing you all at this event.
