This completes the trilogy of “Arrival of the Goddess” series. Following my previous posts on poetry Arrival of the Goddess and glimpses of the Goddess in places like Kalibari and Arambagh Arrival of the Goddess – II , allow me to take you through the celebrations and vibrant days of MahaSaptami & MahaAsthami across CR Park and Sadiq Nagar. The former had literally transformed itself into the “City of Joy”, with lights, pandals, sounds of dhak and queues of people thronging this part of the city.
1. Cooperative Society, CR Park
Looked every bit its inspiration : the Belur Math & rural Bengal. If one has to choose, I would say the most beautiful idols I have seen this year so far.
2. Mela Ground, CR Park
An innovative theme and construction using purely eco-friendly substances and natural colors. The white draping clearly distinguished this from the rest !
4. Navapalli Society
Very vibrant and very colorful, this pandal was literally a burst of colors 🙂
5. Andrews Ganj Pujo
Small, warm and homely : That is the charm this community pujo evokes every year, and this year was no different .
6. Sadiq Nagar DakshinDwip Pujo
Celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, the theme was kept traditional, and idols indeed very enchanting !
Finally, here was a small setup of Pujo at our home :). Eagerly awaiting next year, when the Goddess returns and we revel in the joy in the same fashion. Till then, stay blessed !
