PIPLI LIVE- HARI GHOSH STREET SARBOJONIN DURGA PUJA 2012











A seventy three years old traditional Puja of North Kolkata  that is  well- known for maintaining equilibrium between theme and tradition is Hari Ghosh Street  Sarbojonin Durgotsav . The Puja committee shot to overnight  fame when a few months back it organized Pantautshob which received media coverage for its uniqueness. In Durga Puja 2012 Hari Ghosh Street Sarbojanin Durgotsav along with their theme maker Amit Chatterjee shall present '' Alor mayay ronger bahar sharod utshobe khushir joar''. 

The medium of art that shall be used to highlight the interplay of light and colour is Pipli , the colourful Orissan applique art that involves the process of cutting coloured cloth into shapes of animals, birds, flowers, leaves, gods, goddesses and other decorative motifs and stitching them on a piece of cloth. This is a eight fifty year old universally popular art .  

A famous example is the enormous applique canopies above the reigning deity of Puri, Lord Jagannath. Friends what you need to do is simple, a metro ride either to Sovabazar or to Girish Park  and then just reach beside Hedua Bethune College to see how Orissan art is blended with Hari Ghosh Street Sarbojonin Durgotsav 2012. 

We www.durgapujaonline.com shall also give chances to see Pipli applique soon, just a little wait for that.
