Bombay Durga Bari Samiti's Puja goes digital this year

The Bombay Durga Bari Samiti, which is considered to be among the oldest Durga Pujas of Mumbai, dates back to 1930 and is less than a decade away from being a hundred years old. 

This year they are going to have a unique Durga Puja due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Keeping in mind the guidelines of the puja festival, a three-dimensional mural has been conceptualised which is made of clay and hay by an artisan from the interiors of Kolkata.

As per sources, "The mural will be adorned with traditional ‘Shola pith’, an eco-friendly and –biodegradable material. Everything from Maa Durga's saree to her head gear will be created from this. The same theme will be maintained with rest of the deities, Maa Durga's children including Maa Saraswati, Maa Lokhi, Karthik, and Ganesh. The colour of the mural is that of clay. The overall look is a pristine white Shola pith color with intricate work on the saree and headgear.”

This year the organizers have put together programs and they will be aired online on their social media channels. There will be musical shows by Bengali bands and a Talk Show on Satyajit Ray.
