Durga puja 2012, North Kolkata

Ma Durga
My sister and I toured some parts of North and South Kolkata on panchami night.

This was my first experience of pandal hopping the whole night long. This experience was unique.I did not feel sleepy, and there were quite a few slightly crazy people like us pandal hopping as well. And to think that officially durga puja had not started as yet. It was still panchami!

I am sharing some of the North Kolkata Durga puja pandals that we visited. More to follow.
