Canvas Kolkata-Kumartooli The Durga Puja Preparations - 1

 As The Mother Eagerly awaits at the gates of Kailash
To descend to the Earth, once her abode......
As Lord Shiva looks at his wife longingly....
Nine Days of parting is a shade too long....

 Her sons and daughters fervently engage in creating divinity out of clay

The monsoon almost over....
A clear sky is all that they pray..

 God creates Humans and Humans create a frame for God...


The daughter of  This Earth

Is The Strength to the Supreme one....






Maa Asche......Mother is Coming

  9. Congratz Datta. A brilliant photography. You are revealing your talents in steps. "Maa Asche" It reminded me of Vivekananda's poem, 'Kali The Mother.'

    Come, O Mother come
    Who dares misery love
    And hug the form of Death
    Dance in Destruction's dance
    To him the Mother comes

  13. Datta, what a narration that you have with your pics....I got goosebumps....seriously!
    One of my friend she had made a Ganesha Idol out of clay for Ganesh Chaturthi and had uploaded the pic on FB titling - "Feeling happy to be the creator of creator"....That raised a few eyebrows (although the work of art was much appreciable)....
    I applaud you for using the right words - " God creates Humans and Humans create a frame for God"....
    Good to know the anticipation in town to welcome Ma Durga.
