Post Card 3 from Kolkata, India

Today’s post shows images of some of the more solemn aspects of the Durga celebration as well as the final immersion. The Dugra idols are made from straw and clay from the Ganges and at the end of the celebration the Goddess Durga is returned to the Ganges – the final immersion – from where she will return next year.
