Last time, at the Kumartuli Park Sarbojanin Durgotsab Committee’s puja grounds in north Kolkata, one will also get to experience how an earthquake feels, courtesy light and sound effects in combination with vibrating motors.
Scenes from earthquake-ravaged Nepal and India’s timely help to the neighbouring Himalayan nation will be depicted in clay at a Durga puja pandal in Kolkata, and would impress upon visitors the importance of humanity.
