With two days left, the state has geared up to welcome the Goddess of ‘Shakti’. The Durga Puja Committees are leaving no stone unturned to attract the visitors and stand out in the crowd.
The Dibrugarh Subhash Pally Sarbajanin Bhaboneswari Kalibari Durga Puja committee has conceptualized the idea of making a pencil Durga go with their theme ‘education’. Not only pencils but all the essentials items which symbolises ‘education’, including sharpener, eraser etc have also been used to craft the idols and decorate the pandal.
The pandal which has already grabbed attention has been readied on a shoestring budget. It may be mentioned here that the said puja committee has been organizing Durga Puja for the last 43 years.
“This year we have not hired any artisans for the preparation of the Durga idol. Young boys and girls are working day and night to give shape to their innovative idea,” said one of the members of the puja committee. Every year, this particular puja pandal witnesses a huge footfall due to their unique and innovative ideas.
