Photographer's Note

And finally the Idols are painted in their respective colors..the base colour of the goddesses i.e Durga and her daughter,Lakshmi the goddess of wealth are almost always yellow..the same goes for Kartikeya, the youngest son of Durga..while Saraswati,the other daughter and also the goddess of education has a white base. the eldest son ,the elephant headed God,Ganesha,gets a red color..whereas the demon that Goddess Durga slays(Mahishasura or the Buffalo Demon..as he is said to have emerged from a Buffalo) is painted in green or at times in blue or even black..The Lion is the favourite ride of Durga, although some years when she gets bored with her lion and she rides a horse or comes to this earth in a boat..But she looks best on her Lion none the less!!!
