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.
|From the outside|
b) Shiv Mandir
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.

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