Salt Lake FE Block Residents’ Association is set to forge closer ties among neighbours this year. The block association has for the first time printed wall calendars for its residents with holidays and information of cultural events specific to the block.

For instance, on January 12 there will be a seminar and an elocution contest for youths on the occasion of Swami Vivekananda’s birth anniversary. January 19 will be sports day, to be followed by celebrations for Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s birth anniversary, Republic Day and cultural programmes and community dinner on January 30 for Saraswati puja.

The block committee has chalked out the cultural calendar for the entire year, even announcing khuti puja for Durga puja on July 5. Besides festivals, dates are specified for Science Day celebration (February 28, 29), Literature festival and book fair (May 8 and 9) and the block picnic on December 20.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, a line at the bottom clarifies that the schedule is subject to change in case of eventualities.

The calendar has been despatched to every home in the block.

“This is an effort on our part to ensure bigger gatherings on every occasion. So long we have been announcing events a week or 10 days in advance, sending printouts of the circular to every house. But this way, with the calendar out, both organisers and attendees can plan things in advance,” said block president Gautam Ray.

“I wonder if any other block in Salt Lake has printed such a calendar of events,” a resident said.

The block has a Facebook page and a Whatsapp group but plans to have an app as well to deal with both subscription and communication.
