I took a festive leave from the blogging world for the 5-day-long Durga Puja celebration. The whole city of Kolkata goes through an incredible makeover for these five days. Every nook and corner of the city shines and sings the hymns of happiness. Every pandal exhibits creativity at its best and the city itself becomes an open-air exhibition of art and architecture. Perhaps, there is no other place in the world that becomes so astoundingly beautiful on the onset of such magnanimous festivity. Durga Puja exudes a sense of peace, harmony, and the triumph of good over evil. Goddess Durga is also regarded as the ultimate incarnation of femininity, the Divine Feminine, Adi ParaShakti.
As the cerulean sky got scattered with clouds, dancing in a desultory fashion with the golden hue of the setting sun, the evening marked an end to the biggest festival of the Bengalis, Durga Puja. Here is a glimpse of some of the best artistic creations of the city.
Here’s wishing all my friends, fellow bloggers and readers a happy Bijaya Dashami (end of the Puja). May Goddess Durga’s blessings be showered on you. Subho Bijaya.. 🙂
