Photographer's Note

The face of Durga exudes more motherly feelings than that of a demon killer – she appears to be unbeatable and dangerous, yet
caring.The images that are worshipped in the different pujas of the city are mostly crafted in Kumartuli, a place in north Kolkata. This is the neighbourhood of ‘Kumars’ (potters), a community of artisans who specialise in making clay images of deities. In the days leading up to the Durga Puja, Kumartuli is a fascinating hive of activity.
