Dum Dum Park Sarbojonin Durga Puja Theme
The culture, arts and crafts and the spirituality of Bengal has been chosen as the theme by the Dum Dum Park Sarbojonin puja committee. Keeping in mind this concept, the artist Debasish Guchai has developed the concept. The tradition of Bengal will be highlighted in this year’s puja. Decoration will be done using bamboo, Goynar bori, jute and other traditional items. Various motifs will also be used in the decoration of the puja pandal by the artists.
Speaking at the occasion Dipankar Dutta said “We try to keep the idol traditional and infuse in the themes. This we do so that people can relate with the theme yet get the traditional Mother goddess to pray. There are three more pujas in the area but even then this is the oldest and we stick to our traditions. We have a huge responsibility and we cannot overlook that.
25 artists have been working for the past three months in putting together the pandal as per the concept. The idol has been made by Parimal Pal while the light and sound will be handled by Shri Gopal Electric.
Dum Dum Park Sarbojonin puja committee will be showcasing the tradition of Bengal through their pandal. Do hop in during your pandal hopping spree this Pujo.
