|So, the Pujas are finally over and the days when This "Canvas Kolkata" is painted in varied hues is due next year. Amidst fervent Pandal Hopping I gave my dear blogging a miss and missed my Blogger friends a lot. So, here is the compensation. Puja Parikrama 2014|

|Salt Lake AE Block|
|Salt Lake AE Block:The idol|
Surprise Surprise! That is what I call this Salt Lake AE Block Puja,this Puja is not in to "The Who's Who" of the Pujas but it's theme, the execution took the brownie points away from me. The Pandal was dedicated to the "Dev Vahans". The humble Mouse of Ganesha. The all knowing Owl of Lakshmi. The Pride Peacock of Lord Kartick. The Wise and Beautiful Swan of Saraswati. The Brave Lion Of Maa Durga. Made out of waste materials, it sure was eco-friendly. They chose to be modestly thematic with the idol which I liked.
|Dum Dum Park Yubak Brinda: Theme Morning Calm|
