In Durga Puja 2012 their theme revolves around a tree which is situated in Selimpur Pally Durga Puja ground itself. According to  theme- maker Rintu Das the tree inspirited him and he conceived the idea of using it as the focus.

On the top of a thirty- six feet high tree, an artificial beehive is produced that would appear natural and realistic due to the proficiency and artfulness  of the theme maker whose masterly touches shall initiate a pseudo lotus which shall serve as the throne of Ma Durga  to bloom in full glory beneath the tree. Boat is used to make twenty feet high lotus petals. An unreal water source is made in a close vicinity to recreate an apparent feel of the  lotus blossoming and decorating the water body. The space between the beehive and lotus shall be underscored and punctuated by the use of polychromes. A swarm of  artificial bees would hover around the area subsequently originating a natural landscape yet furnished and allowed to flourish through the use of inanimate objects. In the words of Rintu Das, '' this is an installation type of work''.

The two most celebrated lines of Bengali Literature shall throb and palpitate with life and luminosity in Selimpur Pally Durga Puja 2012 Club ground. The ability to justify the lines through Art is a commendable attempt which shall triumph  in the happiness of  success when our Kolkata crowd will acknowledge their innovative idea from Chaturthi evening onwards.
