The Goddess Is There

Durga Puja at Kolkata, Bengali Festival - photography by Sukalyan Chakraborty

As the Durga puja, the biggest festival in West Bengal, is knocking at the door we all are becoming very very busy in some way or other. But the news paper is carrying the same news of death and hunger. In this dark world of crime and hatred the Demon (Asura) looms large. But we still love to believe that the goddess is there and she is watching all these devils and will punish them in due time. Perhaps that's the reason everyday something happens what brings smile in our faces...

This photograph is taken in Kumortuli, Kolkata. It was a very poor lighted studio. At the time we visited this studio there was no artist working, otherwise there would be some artificial light source. But this poor light helped me to take this meaningful snap. Because of the lack of light we can only view the face of the demon and the Durga placed befind.
