Picture was taken on "Mahalaya"- first day of Devi (Durga) phase known as "devi- pakhaa", Devi (Durga) arrives in the Earth from Heaven on "Mahayalaya" and people believes that She (Durga) empowered by all Godes in Hindu mythology will destroy all evil things or what bad in human society. Just after one week from the Day of Mahalaya worshipto Devi Durga will start ; "Giving eye" to Devi Durga on that day (Mahalaya) is very special. The Artist Mantu Pal, one of the famous artist at Kumortoli of kolkata, giving eye to Devi Durga.

A really good shot. I know from reading about this that painting in the eye is a very special moment and brings the statue to "life." Well captured.
