Goddess Durga Arrives With the New LG Nexus 5X

Durga Puja is a festival for which the Bengalis wait with much eagerness. In fact, the countdown for the next year begins as soon as the immersion of the idol on the Dashami day making an end to the festivity. The whole city of Kolkata goes through a makeover on the Puja days. This year, Durga Puja is just around the corner and, one can feel the spirit of the festival in every nook and corner of the city. The vibe is very much tangible.

According to the mythological stories, Goddess Durga was created by the combined energy of the Holy Trinity of the Hindu religion, Brahma-Vishnu-Maheshwar (Shiva) to defeat the demon Mahisasura. She is the ultimate incarnation of the sublime womanhood. Durga Durgotinashini (the eliminator of all sufferings) is worshiped by her devotees from Saptami to Dashami (four days) and, then the idol is immersed in water. The ritual is called “biswarjana”.

Most of the idols in Kolkata are made in Kumortuli, the potters’ hub. A large number of photographers thronged there to witness the potters at work and, to capture the making of Maa Durga through their lens. The place, having a network of serpentine lanes, is not at all spacious and, the photographic shenanigans are often inundated with complaints from the potter community at work. I admit that nothing made a greater subject of photography than watching those artisans at work, but still, generally I avoid the place during the pre-puja sessions.

However, last week, as I was passing through the Kumartuli Street, I couldn’t resist myself to sneak a bit. Just around the corner I observed some half-made idols and clicked a few times with my mobile.

kumortuliNow here comes the point. My mobile-camera works well in normal light. But at that time, the evening had already transcended and, the light was insufficient. The clicks didn’t satisfy me at all.

It was that moment I thought of the new LG Nexus 5Xthe phone with a powerful camera that is capable of catching more light. The primary camera is a mighty 12.3 MP, laser autofocus with dual-LED (dual tone) flash. And, with 1.55μm pixels, it’s capable of capturing amazing details even in the dimmest light. That’s the phone I should have been with me to capture better pictures of those Durga idols.

As we are talking of LG Nexus 5X and, the grand festival of Durga Puja, let’s make me another thing clear. The grand aura of festivity is dazzling and, one hardly gets any time to be at home. Meeting with friends, pandal hopping, watching newly released movies…we have activities galore. Mobile phone is the only way to be in track with others. What if the phone gets down with the battery? You’ll be lost, literally! The new LG Nexus 5X has USB Type-C reversible charger; capable of continuing for FOUR hours after only 10 minutes of charging. Amazing, isn’t it?

Nexus uses USB-C
We all know that pomp and grandeur need to be secured. LG Nexus 5X has introduced a simplified security system; Nexus imprint. It is placed on the back of the phone. Placement of the imprint at a place where we generally hold it makes it easier to use. It turns on the screen with one touch unlocking the pre-installed Google apps quickly and easily. Nexus imprint gets smarter with every touch.

  1. Interesting nexus between you and Durga puja, mani, even though Steve Jobs from the other world has sent in his irritation at all your excitement in the background of the imminent launch of iPhone 6S and 6S Plus in India.

  2. This is a winner Maniparna and I am sure the grandeur of the festival will be brought alive with the nexus! You have brilliantly captured the essence of the Durga puja and I cannot wait to visit the pandals!

  3. I would have liked festival photos, but do remember your excellent past posts. The phone I have is called a Galaxy 5. I think it is challenging to use but young people figure it out quickly!🙂
    You are a well rounded writer with interesting posts, Maniparna. Hope you have a wonderful Durga Puja.🙂
