Durga pujas: New ground in celebrations
Durga pujas: New ground in celebrations. Innovation is quite the USP for Durga Pujas this year as organisers look to reinvent the celebration of a festival steeped in tradition and age-old lore with everything contemporary, ranging from eco-friendly pavilions to free wi-fi at the venues.
Thus, apart from the unusual, pot-shaped design for their pandal, there are contests like the 'Main Khiladi, Tu Anari' game show, which is looking for talents in the art of balancing trays, walking straight in a blindfold and suchlike. There is interestingly a senior citizens' 'nite' which organisers say will provide an opportunity to the participants to "pour their hearts out on the stage".
