A sapling was planted decades back by visionaries with great foresight who envisioned a bright future for the Bengali Community in this happening city, Hyderabad. The bud that was sown years ago has undergone various stages of development and has today blossomed into a giant tree encompassing in its embrace the very essence of Bengali pride and a sense of achievement.
Hyderabad Bangalee Samity, a path breaking socio-cultural organization, involved in philanthropic activities, began in a very humble way. The launch of the organization was a subdued affair, with the first AGM being held in the year 1942, the year in which this great association was registered. The AGM was held in the premises of Hyderabad YMCA and elected Bishop Mondal as the first president of this august body.
