Happy Durga puja ( দূর্গা পূজার শুভেচ্ছা )

Idol of Goddess Durga Considering the many traditional values, workers, artists and sentiments involved, The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has finally included Kolkata’s famed Durga Puja in its Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list (ICH). While the government sent its proposal in 2019, it was only accepted in December 2021.

The great Fest in the corner

Kumartuli, a place in Kolkata where artisans are making idols of God & Goddesses for generations,  was visited on 30th Sept’12 to find out how the work is going on there  at this juncture of time when only 18 days are left for Durga Puja. Artisans at Kumartuli are working day night to finish the orders in time at their studios/ workshops. To know about this great Fest of India which is also celebrated through out the world, wherever Indians are there, please click to the link of my page “Durga Puja Album“.

The above pics are showing the semi finished idols. The finished idols will be posted after few days.
