Photographer's Note

"Shubho Maha Ashtami" or "Happy 8th Day of Durga Pujo" to all my TE friends from all over the world.

Recently, I had posted 3 pics of unfinished idols of Maa or Mother Durga. This is a finished one taken today at one of the Pujo pandals [the Pujo being organized by a local club] at Lake Town, a neighbourhood of north Kolkata.

There have been a lot of wonderful postings related to this great festival of Durga Pujo [or simply Pujo for Bengalis all over the world], offcourse with some lucid notes. That's why I am not going to elucidate any more. However, I would just like to add a few things...........Durga Pujo is not only a religious festival for Bengalis; it is a celebration of life; a festival of home coming, a festival of love, a festival of literature [in the form of special Pujo editions of the leading Bengali magazines called "Pujo Shankha"], a festival of music [new music gets released every year before the Pujos, FYI, the music released does not relate to the religion by any means], a festival of art........and offcourse, last but not the least, a food festival; after all, Bengalis are known to be great foodies..
