THE LOTUS INSIDE- KASHI BOSE LANE DURGA PUJA 2012












When we speak about  the Durga Pujo tradition in North Kolkata it is not possible to ignore Kashi Bose Lane Durga Pujo. The Pujo Committee has  contributed in the orbit of social welfare and has earned considerable fame. But its dedication and devotion in organizing a ritual bound Durga Pujo has not gone unobserved and unremarked. Kashi Bose Lane Durga Pujo is celebrating their  glorious seventy five years in 2012. The winner of last year's eight awards, has chosen Conservation of Earth as their Durga Pujo 2012 theme, an idea conceived by Gourango Kuila .

Friends we all can comprehend the paramount necessity of conservation of Earth especially  when the world is faced with dismal and sombre times. There is betrayal, corruption, duplicity, faithlessness, blood shed all around. The chances of a bleak and uncertain future hover around   us. The natural world too is groaning under trials and tribulations. The devastating effects of global warming are well documented, including the lack of food and water, destruction of life and the environment , extermination of some species and the increase in deaths caused by flooding storms, heat waves, desertification, the human world and the world of nature are indeed passing through a dark impasse.

This very concept shall be symbolically presented in Kashi Bose Lane Durga Pujo 2012. A lotus is the chosen medium to demonstrate the concept. The inside portion of a lotus is protected by the beautiful petals that bloom in full zest and add to the beauty and vibrancy of the flower. Kashi Bose Lane  Durga Puja 2012 would present the Earth inside a lotus thereby emphasizing on the point of the protection of Earth from hindrance, misfortune and tumult. The lotus is a sacred flower , symbol of spontaneous generation, it represents divine birth, spiritual development and creation itself. The Lotus is also the symbol for macrocosm and microcosm, the universe and Man.

The jewel inside the lotus also stands for the cosmos as well as the divinity of man, moreover the lotus is a symbol of peace. Hence to impart the social message of Conservation of Earth , the Lotus has been considered as the channel of artistic expression. Ma Durga shall be depicted as sitting on the top of five lions in a grand and authoritative manner. The assistant secretary of Kashi Bose Lane Durga Puja 2012 Prodipto Nan narrates to www.durgapujaonline.com  how the beauty of the concept shall be accentuated by the use of Indoor Intelligent Lightning. The concept coupled with the use of intense and incandescent lights shall wait to make all our Pandal hoppers speechless.
