Everyone has their own way to celebrate Durga Puja and our way is digital. Few months back, JIYO BANGLA took the initiative to support 150 Clubs and Committees celebrating Durga Puja in West Bengal and be their digital partner. And ‘Jiyo Bangla Sharod Samman-2018’ touched the sky in its first year with the immense love we received from our audience but as they say sky is just the limit!
