Pujas at 66 Pally and Badamtala at Kolkata.

The Only thing Kolkata could preserve is its Art and Heritage.

Everything else is Party-Matters.

Basu, In Hyderabad, we have the Bengali Matha celebrations on a huge scale at the lower tank bund road.

As you may know, Hyderabad has a very big Bengali population.

I am going to visit the Bengali Matha on "naumi ( 9th day)" which falls on Oct 8th.

Nice start Basu, one more suggession, Pls caption the pics for more info. I would like to know more info like
1) Protima made of what? (if not made of clay)
2) Pandal interior made of what? (if anything other than bamboo and cloth, sometimes the interiors are decorated with newpapers, pots, CDs, matchsticks etc)

Protima and Pandal pics from Kolkata will add nice flavour of Kolkata pujo to rest of world.

My bangalore pics will start form tonight so watch this space.

Yes, that is Hyderabad Bengali Samiti Puja mandap. It is conducting Durga Puja since 1941.
Another celebration in a bigger scale used to happen in Keys High School Sec'bad.

Ohh I miss those days of Hyderabad puja. It is the best probashi pujo in India IMO.

it's a tailor made thing outside Bengal I suppose. Traditionally bhog is only on Ashtami.

Thanks Tirtha for inviting my attention to this.

The pictures are nice and I know the difficulty faced to take such pictures in the crowd. Didn't you face "Dada ki hochche? Aapni chhobi-i tulben naa aamra thakur dekhbo" (Whats happenning man? would you take pictures or we would get to see the idol better).

Would be missing the Puja this year as well. For me, Puja celebrations conducted outside Bengal doesn't quite make it by a far margin. Infact if you look at the opening pages of the articles in your post, the depictions themselves are very contrasting and speaks volumes.

Keep uploading, so that the "underprevileged" lot like us can benefit.
