Some more Pandal pictures, and to be fair I think I’m going to keep posting them for a while. The first few are from Dum Dum Park pandal, which was the theme of child labour. When you enter you see this huge cascades of sunflowers with children’s faces in the middle; and the entire pandal was like a playground. With all the trippy fluid patterns and UV lights it was more than a bit psychedelic. The last two pictures are from Sree Bhumi which had the theme of Padmavat, with it’s huge chandeliers and Rajasthani fort. And like this, the list goes on; with hundreds of pandals scattered across the entire city. . And it’s amazing how much time, money, and effort people spend for just nine days of temporary festivity. But it depends how you view it. I guess it only hit me, that the period was over when I was coming back in the car from the river. Yotto was playing in the background and when the beat dropped it was like a huge knock on my head like yo, the scenery’s changed. I looked outside. No more extravagant advertisements, no more drums in the middle of the streets; just empty canvases in place of what was a collection of murtis. . Though I’m no enlightened person, (no not even close), there is one thing I felt as I saw the remains of what was an entirely different world for 9 days of very high energy. That whether it’s 9 days or 102, or the few years we may live, it’s exactly the same. For 9 days we bring the deity into life by externalising all her expressions, and at the end of it we dissolve the entire thing in water. So where does it go, the spirit? It goes back inside. And with that thought, I felt a little better. Because life is just a play between the internal and external - and whatever you can’t see outside, you only have to look within, to know it’s still there.
What if the world as we know it today never existed? What if this was a more accurate depiction of the face of patriarchy than the one we know? Would we have been closer to creating Utopia or would this world remain the way things already are? . . . . . #durgapuja2018 #storiesofdurgapuja18 #patriarchy #metoo #whatif #portrait #silence #change #utopia #solidarity #storiesofcalcutta #calcuttacanvas #calcuttacacophony #onlyinbengal #kolkata #durgapuja #ig_calcutta #incredibleindia #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #sonyalphain #mysonyalpha #indiaclicks #indiaclickindia #navratri #hope #ipreview @preview.app
একি পুলক বেদনা বহিছে মধুবায়ে কাননে যত পুষ্প ছিল মিলিল তব পায়ে । পলক নাহি নয়নে হেরি না কিছু ভুবনে নিরখি শুধু অন্তরে সুন্দর বিরাজে । মহারাজ একী সাজে এলে হৃদয়পুর মাঝে চরণতলে কোটি শষী সূর্য মরে লাজে । মহারাজ একী সাজে ।। #ig_calcutta #deckleedge #calcutta_cacophony #calcutta_times #in_kolkata #kolkatasutra #dd_kolkata #streets_of_calcutta #kolkatabuzz #kolkata_igers #calcuttadiaries #kolkata_lanes #AmarKolkata #calcuttathesoul #igkolkata . . . #l4l #f4f #ll #fff #lfl
Baghbazar Sarbojonin Durgautsav was the first Puja of Calcutta organised by people communally and not inside a Zamindar's home. In 1919 (for the first time), it was celebrated by the people of Bagbazar at the home of the Sarkars, on Baghbazar Street. This Puja continues to be a major crowd puller. The specialty of Baghbazar sarvajanin durgotsav is their believe on their tradition and the eagerness to hold on to their roots. They still have the same potter family who continues to create the idol of Devi Durga. Nilanjan Pal started doing the idol of Devi Durga and later his sons kartick pal & sadhan pals hold on to the heritage of making the idol of Devi Durga. The idol is decorated in the Daker Saaj and in the silver style. The same design is maintained with the idol. #kolkata_diaries #kolkatagram #ig_calcutta #amarkolkata #calcalling #calcuttacacophony #kolkata_igers #storiesofkolkata #storiesofindia #durgapujakolkata

"Drinking is an emotional thing. It joggles you out of the standardism of everyday life, out of everything being the same. It yanks you out of your body and your mind and throws you against the wall. I have the feeling that drinking is a form of suicide where you're allowed to return to life and begin all over the next day. It's like killing yourself, and then you're reborn. I guess I've lived about ten or fifteen thousand lives now." . . #beer #streetstyle #candid #mobileography #candid #kolkata #cityofjoy #rain #rainyseason #ig_Calcutta #ig_capture #streetphotography #streetphotographyindia #_spi #calcuttainstagrammers #streetphotographykolkata #life_is_street #streetphotographyindia #streetphotographyinternational #_soi #indiapictures #india_everyday #yourclicks #indiapictures #indianshade #indiaeveryday

Kumortuli, Kolkata
It has been a few days now Or has it been weeks Must be months since you walked past this road. . Many views I get as the day rolls away Many sounds I hear as the night falls Nothing compares to having you walk by Nothing compares to seeing you run out in to the lane and grab the clothes Drying on the line. . The other day a child ran by Her anklet made the same beautiful sound like yours did It wasn’t you. . Now that I think about it It must be years You probably have a child of your own I hope you teach her to dance like you Her laugh must sound like you. . Did you know your house and your lane is now growing shrubs and creepers all over it Like it wants to hide itself from the world Encapsulating all your memories within . I too have tried it It is working Soon my heart will forget Soon the house I am built into will be covered with moss But my eyes My eyes refuse to shut They say I’m the eyes of this house I’m a window who has seen you grow I’ve seen you go Come back, I want to see you walk down the lane once more Come back, before I am shut.
বাঙালীর ১২ মাসে ১৩ পার্বণ।।। একটা যেতে না যেতেই আরেকটা এসে পড়ে।।। With the essence of Durga Puja still in the air, the city is gearing up for the next one... . One of the most popular forms of folk art enmeshed in religious myths and rural tradition is the লক্ষী সরা or লক্ষী পট - a circular clay plaque beautifully painted with Goddess Lakshmi images... These are kept in homes & are thought to bring good vibes... Many of these can be found in the markets, ahead of Lakshmi Puja, ready to be sold... . . . #streetphotography #streetphotographyindia #natgeoindia #ngtindia #incredibleindia #indiapictures #india_gram #yourshot_india #indiaclicks #_soi #_coi #storiesofindia #photographers_of_india #indianshutterbugs #desi_diaries #onlyinbengal #wearebengal #streetphotographykolkata #ig_calcutta #streetsofcalcutta #amarkolkata #sokolkata #storiesofkolkata #calcuttacacophony #calcalling #hellokolkata #culture #festival #travel #travelphotography
