It is said that pleasure is the flower that passes with time but remembrance is the lasting perfume that stays with us for the time immortal.
With great pleasure I invite you to celebrate the 40th North American Bengali Conference in Las Vegas, known as the entertainment capital of the world. We also treasure the golden memories of our Bengali life in North America and set in motion the launch of the 50th anniversary celebration of Cultural Association of Bengal, the founders and proponents of annual North American Bengali Conference. It’s the lasting perfume that keeps up with us as we embark on this journey together.
The vision of our founders was to build the podium where we host an annual convention of fellow Bengalis living in diverse cities across North Americas to showcase the rich heritage of Bengali culture and life from times past and the very best of Bengali life of our time in the realm of music, arts, literature, science, technology, business, and more. And what a vision indeed! The seed that they planted 40 years ago has turned this to a peepal tree under which we all meet with our heads high and celebrate the very best of Bengali life as we know of.
It gives me great pride in announcing that we are the only ethnic organization in North America able to host this mammoth convention uninterrupted for 40 years and garner eight to ten thousand attendees. This convention is for you and about you. Our mission is not complete without your participation and support. Let us spread the good vibes among all your friends and families and share the joy together. I heartily welcome you to attend the gala in 2020 Banga Sammelan and urge you to carry it forward to next 40 years and more
All my best,
Milan K Awon
