The name
 Sarathi 
(http://www.sarathionline.com) is popularly associated with the
most vibrant Durga Puja in Bangalore
. We have been organizing various socio-cultural events in Koramangala,Bangalore for several years. Since 2004, the Durga Puja and Diwali celebrations have been held at theMangala Kalyana Mantapa, on 80 ft Road, near Forum Mall.The 5-day cultural extravaganza during Durga Puja, called
 Sammad 
, has become an extremely popular and well attended cultural fiesta in Bangalore, featuring events for kids, students, corporates, andhomemakers - young and old. Both the in-house cultural programs, performed by members, and the glitzy professional events attract equal crowds and applause.
Sarathi Socio-Cultural Trust
is a forum of like minded, cosmopolitan, andenthusiastic people who have come together with a vision to create a forum for organizingand enjoying cultural functions centeringaround some major festivals.It started with a group of nostalgic Bengaliswho wanted to have a feel of Calcutta duringthe Durga Puja in Bangalore. Starting in 2003,the initial group was subsequently joinedby anumber of other people from various backgrounds and speaking different languages, but with a shared interest in art and culture.Sarathi now has grown to a big organization, and was formally registered as a Trust few years ago. It isrun professionally by its members, who have volunteered to take up the extra workload for the sake of some fun and entertainment for the innumerable people of Bangalore.The main events of Sarathi are the
Durga Puja
