'Durga-Puja 2021' was CANCELED due to the current pandemic situation.

We are extremely sorry that we had to CANCEL this year's Durga Puja due to the current pandemic situation in our province. We did try our best to measure all the possibilities of hosting the event and after a careful review of the guidelines and restrictions currently in place, we had no other option but to take this heartbreaking decision. But we printed and published our 2021 annual magazine and we have delivered the copy of the magazine to our members who paid their annual membership by Oct 7. We have published the family photos of the members' who already provided the photos and gave consent to do so. We are also collecting 2021-2022 membership fees ($40/family & $20/single). To pay both, please e-transfer to info@krishti.ca or mail a chq (payable to KRISHTI) to 15848 13 Ave SW; Edmonton, AB, T6W 2N5, Canada. Please mention your email address in the e-transfer or write it on the chq so that we can email you the official receipt in time. We did a virtual puja this year along with a live telecast of the event so that willing members could offer 'Anjali' from their homes.

Annual Picnic was held on August 22, 2021
What a picnic it was on August 22, 2021! It was not a perfect day in Devon Lions Campground, mixed with clouds & rain, but participation of around 100 people including children, a very desirable mixture of youth and old, dancing, continuous sports, games, races, excellent food throughout the day ending with a BBQ dinner. It was wonderful to see that the children along with their parents/families were loving, enjoying, and performing the various sports/events arranged by our youth secretary, Ritvik Das. Thank you for your participation, cooperation, help and enthusiasm to make Krishti's 2021 annual picnic a super success.
