Durga in Hogwarts School

Goddess Durga, the symbol of shakti, fertility, demon-killer and prosperity showering blessings with her ten hands.

This Pandal (decorated house of Goddess Durga) at Salt Lake FD Block in the City of Joy, is a replica of Hogwarts School from J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter Series. J K Rowling has sued the organisers for copyright violation in the Supreme Court and demanded £25,000 as compensation. Phew!

Kolkata during the Durga Puja is the epicenter of creativity. The entire state of West Bengal displays some of most fascinating work of art in this five day festival . A visual treat for the eyes. For those of you who haven't experienced Kolkata during the Durga Puja, do visit here for more pictures and images from the City of Joy. And make sure to plan your trip next year without fail.
