Durga puja at one of the oldest residences in Bhawanipur, Kolkata

Durga Idol at
the Girish Mukherjee
Durga puja at the Girish Mukherjee house in Bahawnipur, Kolkata is over 100 years old.

This beautiful old house and the people have upheld the tradition of celebrating Durga puja in the same traditional way over the years. All members of the family get together for Durga puja, the sense of togetherness and the spirit of festivity in this household is infectious! And not to miss the dhakis who complete the whole picture by drumming in the beats of happiness.
