Badamtola Ashar Sangha Durga Puja 2012

Theme :
“Ebar Ulto Pothe” (“Views with a Difference”)

We, Badamtala Asarsangha, are organizing their 74th year of Durga Puja. This year we are presenting as a theme “Ebar Ulto Pothe” (“Views with a Difference”).

In our everyday life, we usually find that whenever possessions for immersion of idol, marriage parties are passing by the roads some bunch of people do carry large size torches side by side of the possession to make it more bright and beautiful. We do observe and be amused by the beauty and brightness of the possession but people who have makes it mostly remains in dark.

Regarding decorations of the pandals, it is almost the same story repeated. Visitors who wait in long cue to see the decoration of the pandal and idol of goddess are also eager to see only the art and craft of the pandal and idol. Decorated lightings are remaining at road sides only. Artists do dedicate their all effort to decorate the lighting. But the creations are only able to reach road side of the pandals. Even if the lighting inside the pandal has reach an artistic as well as creative level then also it only remains as an instrument to present the creativity of the pandal and the idol of goddess.

Why these dissimilarities are prevailing? Art director Bandan Raha gave a thought. His artistic thinking inspired him to openness. No decorated closed pandals any more, open sky will be the stage.

This year the pandal entrance is decorated with handicrafts. The art director and light artists both made equal contribution to make the main pandal more creative, artistic and lucrative.

As if we carrying that large size torches with us. And we are trying to put the spot light on the people who are carrying the torch on the bright road with them in possession and with a difference.
