Coming to the moot point of the story as I delve deep into it. As I was travelling to Nepal three years back I received a message. I only remember that while crossing the Indo-Nepal border way back home, I read the messages. They ran as follows: ‘Are you from Kolkata? Travelling to Kathmandu? I am also from Kathmandu’. Up to this, it was normal. Suddenly, she was online and started talking. I found she was more curious about me.
Kumartuli is the place one can visit. Art is everywhere in India and Kumortuli is not the exception but it is unique on it’s own way.The clay for the idol is collected from the holy Ganges river,which is nearby to the place and there is also a age-old custom that a handful of soil which is called Holy Soil (In Bengali Punnaa Mati) mixed with the clay, which goes with the clay for making Goddess Durga idol.
