Amazing Durga Puja pandals in Kolkata in 2013

Even though I have been to Kolkata innumerable times, I have somehow never managed to be there during the pujo. 

Its a time of chaos (actually chaos starts about a month before that) and celebrations, dressing up and eating well, of pandal-hopping and socialising. 

Posting some images of beautiful pandals this year (in no particular order), courtesy my cousin @VaibhavJain who is in Kolkata as I write this along with my dearest sister-in-law @KritiKundalia.  

a) Singhi Park, South Kolkata
The theme here is 'Rajbari' which is the traditional style of pujo.

And inside

b) Shiv Mandir

c) Mudiali Club
The theme for this pandal was 'Lotus'. Know more about this club's annual pujo celebrations here. The inside looks like surreal, like a collection of numerous floating hot air balloons.

The Lotus theme continues
Love the traditional red and green combination. For me, it can't get any more Bengali than this.

d) Falguni Sangha, Gariahat
This pandal looked like a setting of an opera. Beautiful!
