Durga Puja 2012 : Dashami
This year, things have been a bit different. With my grandmother not keeping well, our usual sojourn to North Calcutta did not happen this year. I made my trip to Bangur Avenue, where she has been residing with my aunt and cousin to meet her.
The pandal next to where they reside had some interesting motifs in burnt clay, that is a tradition of Bishnupur.
The ceiling motifs were rather interesting . . .
The facade of the pandal was also exquisitely decorated.
While driving back, I was surprised that most of the pandals were virtually empty or had few worshipers. Compared to that, the Victoria Memorial had lots more visitors.
Changing times or more tourist inflow during the pujas? Or is it “poriborton”?
