Solitude

Solitude in creation. Durga puja is the biggest festival of west bengal. It is the festival of joy, a festival of good overcomes evil. Durga (deity) represents Good and Holiness and The Asura represents bad and evil. Idols of Durga along with other gods and Asura also worshiped during the puja. Kumortuli Patuapara is a small area in Kolkata,the home of some poor artists who are famous for making idols with clay and bamboo etc.Before durgapuja they were very busy due to the excessive demand of their idols. When I went there for taking photos, I saw an old man,all alone, working in his hut with nothing but a light of a bulb. The hut was like as old as the man himself.He was gazing at one of his work and something was going on in his mind. He was so much immersed on his own and he was not connected with the out side world and that attracted me.
