Welcome to The Calcutta Club USA. We are a unique organization whose members are passionate about the city of Calcutta, its locale, language, lifestyle and literature. Just as the original Calcutta club was founded as a platform for the British and Indians to meet on equal terms, the Calcutta Club USA thrives in stimulating bonhomie, warmth and acceptance among its diverse members. The nexus of friendship and respect binds every member of the club. The club's events are mostly internal but we also organize three major annual public events - The Calcutta Club Literature Fest (Sanskriti), Caleidoscope Cine Celebration and the CuisinArt Live Culinary Contest and Art Sale.
Calcutta Club USA has organized several visible concept events since its inception in January 2015. The club was recently featured in The Beacon newspaper which succinctly covered the organizations goals and accomplpishments. For a very brief slideshow of the events, please click here.
Thanks for the huge turnout at our recent Sanskriti Book Fair on June 10 with Shashi Tharoor and the overwhelming participation of almost 800 people for the 3 day Caleidoscope Film Festival - it will remain etched in our memory for long!
Our next public event is the screening of new, rare English/Hindi art film Sonata directed by Aparna Sen on Dec 10,1 PM at Apple Theaters, Cambridge. The film stars 3 veteran stalwarts - Shabana Azmi, Lillete Dubey and Aparna Sen - do not miss this rare production - one show only. Here is the ticketing link.
