Our Inspiration

 

"I have had my invitation

to this world's festival,

thus my life has been blessed.

My eyes have seen

and my ears have heard."

 

-- Rabindra Nath Tagore

Welcome to CTBA Austin, a vibrant community that brings together over 800+ families in the heart of Austin. We take pride in cherishing the rich tapestry of Bengali (Asian Language) art, culture, literature, music, theater, sports, food, and festivals. Within the warm embrace of our community, CTBA fosters a sense of belonging and creates a home away from home for all its members.

At CTBA, we go beyond being just a community, we are a family that celebrates diversity and unity. Our platform serves as a cross-cultural nexus, fostering social and cultural exchanges that not only allow us to share our heritage with the world but also to embrace the best of what surrounds us. The social bonds formed within CTBA create a camaraderie that strengthens our connections and makes us feel deeply attached to one another.This strong sense of unity and friendship extends beyond our community as CTBA actively engages in charitable services, contributing to the well-being of wider communities. By giving back, we exemplify the spirit of compassion and collective responsibility. Join us at CTBA Austin, where cultural celebration, social bonding, and philanthropy converge to create a unique and enriching experience for all.

Feels like home

Subhadi, Sunitda

In Bengali, our family could be described as, “Bhaboghure”! Partly for professional calls and partly for extreme desire to see the unseen, we have moved and moved and moved! It is easier to tell where we have not been rather than where we have dropped our anchors in the last fifty years we have been in the USA. Fifteen years ago, in 2004, we came to Austin in search of a place to make our permanent home. As 2019 almost comes to an end, we know it sure was a good choice.

Central Texas Bengali Association, one of our first contacts for obvious reasons, was instrumental to our being introduced to the Bengali community and has played a very important role in our lives since then. As the city of Austin grew, so did CTBA, but it always felt as a close and comfortable organization to be a part of. Year after year, the talented executive groups that have carried on the flag of CTBA with great dedication have been able to bring the community together with great care. With the range of programs to fit the needs of all age groups CTBA has been a source of support not only to the new comers but also to all the residents that have made their homes in Austin for many, many years.

Thank you CTBA for being there and we wish you a great future ahead.
