Sabuj Sathi - Presents another hue of emotion

If autumn comes can Durga puja be far behind from the Bengalis? The dhakis have already started their rhythmic beat....A five-day festival, which starts from the evening of Mahashasthi and ends at Dashami brings the biggest happiness for each and every Bengalee. It is the time to get out of the house in colourful dresses and hopping from pandel to pandel, have delicious food and spend great times with friends and family members. Durga Puja is a religious tradition of the Hindus that has gradually turned into a huge carnival in Kolkata over the years and now it has become a major commercial event as well. This puja where creativity wins over the rituals is wonderful occasion in many ways.

This is the 42nd year Durga Puja celebration of 'Sabuj Sathi' that is based on a theme of "KALER SEKAL EKAL". Mythological episode of Mahisasur Badh by Devi Durga has been shown by different arts and sculptures on cave walls,temples and many more holly places around Indian Sub continent. Among those vivid  Chaushotti kala (64 Nos. art forms), artist has chosen 3 nos. particular kalas emphasizing his descriptive endeavor vide above kalas (arts). Out of that 64 kalas found from ancient history of art and sculpture, artist Sri Pradip Nandy have chosen and would exibit ancient art i.e. i) CXHITRA KALA and after passing some decade transformed into ii) ISHAT UTTAL (named as relief) MURTI KALA and further passing several decades developed in to iii) PURNA MURTI KALA. So, this history of formation of arts named as "KALER SEKAL EKAL" and the entire episode of our artistic heritage would be elaborated throughout our pandal and pratima using very basic raw earth, scorched earth which is abandon from nature and very safe from any perspective of fire hazards.
