Samhati : Bengali Association of Arkansas
01 Nov 2013


Samhati started in 2009 with a handful of Bengali enthusiasts, most of whom migrated to NW Arkansas and who realized the need of an extended family to bind them. It started with adda, casual get togethers, pool side barbecues - not to mention, nobody then had dreamed that this underlying sense of attachment and Eastern warmth would spread wings to long term initiatives. It was 2011; spring was touching its magic wand on Bentonville. The historic First Council of Samhati was held. Resolution for the First Sarbojaneen Durga puja celebration also followed. Time was running away. And no funds in hand. But dedication to cause do miracles. Bengali, Odiya, Assamese and other professionals from the region and their families defied all challenges and volunteered wholeheartedly. Our memories bear testimony to their determination. Needless to say, colors of success of First Sarbojaneen Durga puja will never fade off our memories. Journey begun. To unite. To learn. To adapt. Toward relentless service to the community. The Second Council of Samhati took place in Centerton in 2011 to vow for Vani Archana, Naba-varsha and Rabindra Jayanti. 2012 events complimented the cause. We never looked back after that. Samhati is the need of the hour. Helping each other in the time of need, emergency support, keeping our culture alive, events and celebrations...Samhati is now a respected community forum in NW Arkansas. In Samhati, we firmly believe in law, equality and a clean and green Arkansas.
