Reflections on Sight & Memories 3/3 I kept that morning experience and that of my childhood in my thoughts, examining each moment while living a sedentary life facedown for the past few weeks while I recovered from emergency retinal reattachment surgery. To avoid stress on my remaining eye, I kept both closed, allowing my mind only to focus on my meditation practice, listening to audiobooks and then on images from my memory. Now, face up, and slightly more active, I look at these images with gratitude and appreciation. Not merely because of the opportunity to spend time in Kolkata witnessing their work firsthand, but rather the experience it's given me to discover how casually seemingly unrelated memories from the past can be associated into new means of thinking about the world, especially during times of great importance. #kumartuli, #kolkata #calcutta #india #durga #durgapuja #durgapujafestival #westbengal #passportsinhand #latergram #bengal #durgaidol #kolkataartisans #artisans #devidurga #kali #kaliidol #kumortuliworkshop #workshop #idolmakers #beautifulindia #vijayadashami #rigveda #rigvedahymns #murti #ganesha #clay at Kolkata,West Bangla,India

Reflections on Sight & Memories 1/3 When we spent the morning wandering through the artisan stalls of Kumartuli, a suburb of Kolkata, in April of 2017, I would never imagine the photos captured that day would have been a necessary element of my recovery as I spent the past month literally, and figuratively, in the dark. The summer humidity had not yet made its presence as the local artists and potters, focused on each part of the process of shaping idols of Durga, the warrior goddess of Hindu mythology, into shape for upcoming festivals throughout India. The smell of straw was pervasive from one shop to the next as bundles of it were shaped into the bodies of Durga, Lakshmi, Ganesha, or Saraswati before the clay was applied. #kumartuli, #kolkata #calcutta #india #durga #durgapuja #durgapujafestival #westbengal #passportsinhand #latergram #bengal #durgaidol #ward9 #kolkataartisans #artisans #devidurga #kali #kaliidol #kumortuliworkshop #workshop #idolmakers #beautifulindia #vijayadashami #rigveda #rigvedahymns #murti #ganesha #clay at Kolkata,West Bangla,India

🙂🙂 . . @Regran_ed from @viaparomita - Time to wish, hug nd gorge on sweets🤗 After 9 days of enlightening celebration #MaaDurga has returned back to her abode with her children. This morning seemed to be a quiet expanse and later when the #Dhaaki came home to ask for his leave, it was a heart drowning moment that she's been immersed in the water and we'd have to wait another year for her return to erase all sorrow from this inflicted Earth. May the sweetness and healthy moments remain in everyone's life until she comes back next year!! Wishing you a joyous #VijayaDashami !! #ShubhoBijaya 🙏 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #kolkatadiaries #kolkatafoodie #kolkatablogger #indianfoodbloggers #igfood #kolkata_ig #kolkataigers #kolkatabloggers #kolkata_calcutta_city #igkolkata #kolkatasweets #sokolkata #kolkatas_paparazzi #indianbloggers #indianfestival #indiangrams #india_ig #shubhobijayadashami #DurgaPuja2018

#sareelook #look4 This cotton parrot green saree was given (rather gifted) by my mother's friend cum neighbour looking at my recent craze for old sarees. All mothers out there who are abandoning their old sarees can reach out to me for gift/grant/charity/sale 😎 . . I wore it last month on the occasion of #dushera #Vijayadashami. Not very easy to drape since the cotton is pretty stiff. Need to be ironed well for better plates. . . . #saree #sareeseries #cottonsaree

📷 of ladies queued up for 'Sindoor Khelā' on Bijayā Dashami at Bagbazar Sarbajanin Durgotsav, Kolkata 2018 had been the 100th year of worship of goddess Durgā by BAGHBAZAR SARBOJONIN DURGOTSAV AND EXHIBITION, an inseparable part of the history and progress of Bengali culture. Every year, the gigantic, magnificent, traditional idol of Durgā is created by Jiten Paul and sons. In 1938-1939 this organization was privileged by the active participation of Netaji Subhash Ch. Bose as the president. The connection of the committee with the Swadeshi Movement is still cherished with the Birashtami Utsab in the morning of Mahāstami. Sindoor Khelā literally means 'vermillion game' and is a Bengali tradition observed on Bijayā Dashami, the last day of Durgā Pujā. The ritual worship of the goddess Durgā concludes with the Visarjan Pujā. It is followed by Devi Baran, where the married women bid farewell to the goddess. The women usually dress in white saris with red borders and adorn traditional jewellery. Each of the women perform ārati and smear the goddess' feet with sindoor. They also offer her sweets and betel leaves. Following that the women smear each other's foreheads with sindoor. Then they put sindoor on each other's shānkhā, palā and noā (the conch shell, coral and iron bangles respectively), which are worn by married Bengali Hindu women. Finally they offer sweets to each other as prasād. According to commonly held belief, if a woman participates in Sindoor Khelā by following the proper customs, she will never be widowed. Earlier, unmarried women, widows and non-Hindus had been barred from participating in the ritual, but at present women from all corners- be it married, unmarried, widowed, non-Bengali, non-Hindu, non-Indian, transgendered or women from the red-light area- all participate in Sindoor Khelā, making it a universal bonding for women. . . . #india #igersofindia #igers #igersociety #igerscapes #igersmoods #igeroftheday #igersgallery #instagood #instamood #instapicture #photo #art #history #heritage #culture #custom #colours #durga #durgapuja #bijaya #vijayadashami #bijayadashami #sindur #sindoor #sindurkhela #sindoorkhela #bagbazar #baghbazar #kolkata at Bagh Bazar, West Bengal, India

#vijayadashami , also known as #dussehra , is a combination of two words ‘Vijaya’ meaning ‘ #victory ’ and ‘Dashami’ meaning ‘tenth’, signifying the #festival on the tenth day celebrating the victory of #good over #evil . As per #hinduism the nine-days of #navratri is divided into three groups with three days each. The first three days of Navratri are Tamas – where the goddess is #aggressive , like #durga . The next three days are Rajas – where the Goddess is #gentle , like Lakshmi and the last three days are Sattva, related to #knowledge and #enlightenment like Saraswati Dussehra marks the end of Durga Puja, where Goddess Durga defeats demon Mahishasur to help restore Dharma. Shubho Vijaya to everyone... #pujo #kolkata #calcuttadiaries #india_undiscovered #kolkata_igers #streetphotography #streetsofkolkata #photography #travelbugindia #happiness #beautiful #photographers_of_india #ig_calcutta #mythology #girlpower #love

Vijayadasami remains my most favourite day of the year. It stands for 'success on the 10th day' in literal translation. It signifies that success that comes after toiling sweat and blood, and a lot of endurance and patience, and that which teaches you the art of living. Only the one who goes through it, can understand it, in its deepest sense. It's the Indian version of Thanksgiving(literally). But what does it truly represent? Indian culture is always driven by the big picture. We don't have mother's day, father's day, inspiring idol day and so on. Think about it. Technically, you can never thank enough. Nor can we do it even if we did it all our lives. In essence, it's the day of gratitude. Take it, everybody! It's all of you that I owe all my thanks and love for who I'm today. I may not live long enough to show all my love for all my dearies. I may not have shown have enough love for everyone I have come across. For several births to come, I may not be able to show my gratitude to my parents, siblings, cousins, relatives, friends, enemies, authors, singers, creators, dancers, foreigners, places, strangers, those that I missed in this list, and every other ounce of inspiration I drink in a day, every second. But this one day of sincere salutations, allows you to represent your deepest gratitude and earnest joy. The joy called Bharatanatyam :) The joy of life. The joy of being a human. To all my gurus from mother dearest to maheshwara ... 🙏 That's Indian culture for you! ☝️ #vijayadasami🙏 #vijayadasami #gratitude #indianculture #bharatanatyam #dancerlife #latergram #shreegurubhyonamaha #classicaldance #indiandancer #thankyoupost #landofculture #art #artist #inspiration #indiandancing #narthanam #vijayadashami #indianclassicaldance #sagjdances
