Photographer's Note

These are some of my first pictures of Pujas at Calcutta. Having lived 22 years in this city,I can vouch that the spirit of this fistival can be compared to none other across the globe.
It is bigger than any carnival. Almost the entire population of the City is out on the road visiting pandals (temporary structures built out of bambaoos, cloth, paper etc) which are 100s in number and the idol of goddess Durga is worshipped in all these pandals. The Idol of the goddess varries from pandal to pandal. The creativity of the artisans is HUGE.
It is sheer magnificience of creativity at display in the beauty of the pandals and the idols within.
I will be posting more images of this festival over the next few days.
