The enhancing effulgence of colours and the characters that emerge on cotton fabric, help to create a resplendent spread. Kalamkari art is unique in its use of colour as a medium to portray mythological characters similarly in Bosepukur Talbagan Durga Puja 2012 Kalamkari is used to convey the stories of Ramayanas and Puranas .
