It is a common saying that Bengalees love to form Associations,Kali Mandirs or Durgabaris to the extent that if three Bengalis meet on the South Pole they will first form either an Association or a Kali Bari. So it is not a wonder that there are innumerable Associations or Kalibaris in our country. Some of them in Bengali dominated areas; some are in places where Bengalis are real minorities, or even at places where they are countable in fingers. The aims of these Associations are divergent and varied, may be religious, political, cultural, linguistic, social or any aspect of life which needs three persons to think together
