We have the pleasure to present the origin and the history of the gradual development of “Purbachal Sangha” presently well known as Tushar Sangha within a limited format. In our humble effort respected guardians of our locality namely Sri Nani Dey, Sri Pannalal Choudhury, Sri Mukunda Debnath, Sri Makhan Ch. Deb and Sri Nani Pal have assisted us immensely with information to give our effort a shape.
During the 1950s some clubs originated as the centres for recreation. At that time some of the residents of our Chandrapur locality namely, Late Gourdas Sen, Late Amar Debnath, Late Kalu Singh, Late Hridoy Kanta Baura, Late Sudhir Chandra Baidya, Nani Pal, Nani Dey, founded a Club named “ Purbachal Sangha” as it was situated on the east of Agartala town, West Tripura. It started its journey with the holy worship of Devi Saraswati Puja later the Club owned the hearts of the local people by performing “Jatra”, Drama and Puja. In this regard, the contribution made by respected Late Benu Choudhury, Late Atul Saha, Mukunda Debnath, Manik Deb, Late Monoranjan Majumder (Kala) and many others distinguished persons will be ever remembered. With the passage of time, respected Baidyanath Banik and others re-named “Purbachal Sangha” as Tushar Sangha.
