Pandals are like a temporary temple during the Pooja. The making of Pandal is also a complex and lengthy phenomenon. It has now become a trend to set pandals through community contribution in every colony and street. The trends of ‘Barwari Puja’ usually financed by the local land-owners or sponsored by the rich people have now become a feature of community contribution. Making of these pandals follow well-set plans that use bamboo poles, wooden planks and cloth and the beautiful low temperature unglazed pottery . The designs of the Pandal are done in accordance with space available and the community’s population. It has now become a trend to set designer pandals with complex lightings and intricate patterns. Decorated by lights, flowers and several such items, the modern pandals at many places also look like film sets.

A fascinating write-up, Debu, and a very well captured example of one of these 'designer' pandals. Carol

A pity this one, at least, is temporary. Beautifull crafted.
