Photographer's Note

I took this shot in Kumartuli where we see Devi idols is being created along with Ganesha (so called as one of her sons) and the work is on full speed as the puja is nearing by.

Kumartuli is a traditionally potters’ quarter in northern Kolkata (previously known as Calcutta), the capital of the east Indian state of West Bengal. By virtue of their artistic productions these potters have moved from obscurity to prominence. This Kolkata neighbourhood, not only supplies clay idols of Hindu gods and goddesses to barowari pujas in Kolkata and its neighbourhoods, but a number of idols are exported.
