The essence of Durga Puja is felt on the beats of `Dhak` . The players known as `Dhaki` are more energetic while beating the Dhak and their dance along with the beats is just a mesmerizing event to watch. This is only seen on the eve of Durga Puja. There are many shows on Dhak to raise popularity of the Dhakis of Bengal. Can anybody name some of the famous Puja Pandals who organize this type of events? Do you agree with this initiative to highlight this profession?

Hey Writi, this is a very nice and unique topic. Thanks for posting because we Bengalis are very much accustomed with the Dhak and its tremendous rhythm. But other people should also have its knowledge. This is one of the prides of Bengal. A Durga Puja is totally incomplete without a Dhak. Infact the occasion is inaugurated with the rhythm of Dhak which continues till it ends.

There are many songs on Dhak in Bengali. One I have heard is very famous I have heard this for atleast 3 yrs consecutively in the puja pandals. It starts with something like `Dhaker Taale Komor Dole. Khushite Naache Mon`.
