In Kumortuli, Kolkata, artists work in poor facilities to produce their artistic marvels. This photograph of lord Ganesha is taken in the afternoon when the 200 Watt bulb was the only source of light. Every time I visit Kumortuli I got amazed by the fact that how can they (the Artists) create such beautiful idols in such a poorly lit, hot and humid place, where even there is little space to walk freely. This snap is my tribute to all those great artists who never got the appreciation they should get.
