Durga Puja

A Fascinating Festivity

There is something about the Durga Puja that makes all of us get ritualistically involved with it every year. A Bengali can be anywhere between Calcutta and Connecticut but it is unlikely that he/she will not know when and where his nearest Puja is taking place. This unquestioned allegiance to its prospect and the effortless appeal of its colour makes Durga Puja a rich and culturally unique object of study.

Sunil K Dutt’s camera lovingly explores the myriad moods of the ‘fascinating festivity’ and with the help of an insightful text by Shyamal Kanti Chakravarti, reveals a great festival in its holistic appeal.
