BANGAMELA: HOW IT CAME INTO BEING

In 1998, a few Bengalis of the Tri-state area (Kentucky-Indiana-Ohio) proposed to organize a  cultural festival in mid America region in order to further the rich cultural tradition and  heritage of Bengali literature and performing arts amongst the Bengali diaspora living in  North America. In the following year, at a meeting of a few enthusiastic Bengalis from the  Tri-state area, a resolution was passed to form a cultural forum, MID AMERICA BENGALI ASSOCIATION (MABA). At the same meeting, Treenaneel of Kentucky proposed to host the first cultural festival, BANGAMELA 1999, in Louisville.
