The powerful image and spiritual symbol of the flower is incorporated in the design of the jewelry representing purity and peace.


Speaking at the occasion Rajeshwari Srinivasan, Associate Vice President & Regional Business Head of East Titan Company Limited said, “Tanishq continues to celebrate the festive spirit of Durga Puja in the city of Kolkata. We started the association last year and we wish to take forward this tradition yet again this year.  It was a huge challenge for us to create life size ornaments for the idol as there were no moulds present. Tanishq aims to drive relevance for gold across consumer categories and life stages and has designed jewellery for Maa Durga keeping the spirit of Durga Puja in mind.”
