Durga Puja 2015; North Kolkata Puja Parikrama

Durga idol Hatibagan Sarbojanin
Happy Saptami!

I can't believe that Saptami is almost over. That just leaves us with two more days of
festivities :(

Here are some more beautiful Durga puja pandals from North Kolkata. The best part about most of the pandals, I visited this year, was the use of natural materials for decorations.It is really nice to see the conscious use of natural materials; not only are they environment friendly, they also result in the employment of rural talent. These creations are so very artistic and amazing. I hope you enjoy this tour.I will bring you more soon.
