The image of the Hindu Goddess Durga ..

By prabirsenuk    
Goddess Durga .. Hindus call Her "Mother" & believe the Goddess came to Earth to free the world from evils when everything & everyone failed. At this time of the year, the story goes that the Goddess comes to her father's house for 4 days & then goes back to her husband Lord Shiva.

The photo displays the immense skills with which a potter prepares the idol of the Deity. It is the perfect combination of thought, art, skill and lastly creativity which bring out tens of thousands of these images worshipped by Hindus, specially Bengalis (people from West Bengal in India), living around the word. This is the time of the year we Bengalis wait for for our ultimate rejoice.

This photograph is of the deity in Tridhara Sammilani, the local club where I live in Kolkata
