Organized by Youth Association (this year), Mohammad Ali Park Sarbojonin Durgotsab is among the most popular Durga Pujas of Central Kolkata. Since its inception, the Mohammad Ali Park Durga Puja Samity has tried to bring out several replicas of monuments – explored and unexplored – from all over the world. The samity, even though it follows the changing trend of architecture and style, has preserved its age old culture and tradition, which reflects through the artistic work.
Female Infanticide, Terrorism, Environmental awareness, Nari Shakti, Buddha mandir are some of the themes that the Puja Committee had come up with in the past few years.
This year Youth Association of Md. Ali Park with the conception of Md. Bapai Sen brings forward a theme which represents the earnest request from the birds to give them freedom. It is highly necessary to keep the birds free and not to snatch their freedom. Africa is chosen as a theme because this continent has great diversity. The mandap will be decorated with green plants and trees with exotic birds displaying their wings and colors.
With environment being such an important topic, it will be interesting to see what the pandal turns out to be.
