The Countdown has begun!

“Baajlo tomar alor benu,
matlo re bhubon..”

[English translation: Goddess Durga is coming to earth and that initiated happiness all around it.]

‘She’ is at the doorsteps. ‘Maa durga’ (Goddess Durga) is coming to her home from in-laws. The countdown has begun! With less than 13 days remaining, the preparation reached the apex of thousands anticipation. Women are busy with parlours-markets-and-so-on-list, husbands busy paying (:P), teenagers busy planning, and photographers are busy clicking.

Here goes few clicks caught by my lens.

“Preparation on”

“Man behind the happiness”

While photo-shooting yesterday, I met a guy. A very simple one with mud in his hand, and few 10 rs/- notes in his pocket. They are the idol-artists, working night after nights giving perfection to the shape of the idols. In my words, they are the real architect of happiness, that we enjoy.

“The countdown has begun”

Within 7 days, the evergreen voice of Birendra Krishna Bhadra will inaugurate “Debipokko” and then it will just be 6 more days to go.

That dream of life.

Its diwali today. Lights are all-over crafting our way to fantasy, to the world of open-eyed-dream. Those blue ones are my personal favourite. They take me to an other world, where one can draw their imaginations.

Life consists of reality and dreams. Both complete each other. One fine day, dream can help you get over reality and on the next, reality takes over dream.

This very picture shows a dream. Lights of joy, Taj of love. But its just that the next morning one can’t remember the dream properly. Just the theme stays. Like life, happiness stays. No matter what the reason is.
