Durga Puja - The kind of Energy, Grandeur, Celebration and the belief - absolutely Phenomenal! 💫😍✨⠀
⠀
Last few days in Kolkata during Durga puja has been an amazing adventure. The entire city had been richly decorated with colorful 'pandals' that house the idols of Maa Durga. Its the biggest open-air art festival in the country where each pandal is decorated with a theme and handmade art! Everywhere you look there was so much beauty that I was speechless! ❤️🇮🇳 ⠀
⠀
This particular pandal was one of the many I had seen which completely blew my mind! The entire place was decorated with jute and clay! The theme of this pandal was to revive the lost artisanal traditions of Bengal, acquaint the newer generations with the clay and jute artists of the state, whose prowess remains unacknowledged in this mechanized world. ✨🌿💫⠀
⠀
If you are wondering how I could manage to get a shot so close - The secret is arriving at this pandal at 5am on the 11th day of the festival and requesting the security guards who were sweet enough to let me take my shots! Technically the festival was over but some of the famous pandals were still on display for few extra days as the beauty was unbelievably stunning 🙌🏼😍❤️⠀

"its darjeeling tea, with which you cherish your dreams.

the local tea stalls in darjeeling make tea in kettles. we were taking a tea break during a trek in one of these road side stalls. the kettle attracted me, so did the singalila range with the 3rd highest peak, mt. kanchejungha.

the spout erupts with the s****y flavour of the snow capped himalayas." credits: @rakesh_prasad_himalayantrek .
