Well, when someone says Durga Puja and North Kolkata, the only thing comes to my mind–
“Dekh mon kashbon dulche je sari
Kobe dhak debe dak din gunche je tar-e
Shiuli makha golpo aghamanir shur
Kumartulir gondho choralo
Bolo bolo dugga elo
Bolo bolo dugga elo”
(“Look at the mind, the row that sways the forest,
When to cover, to call, to count the days that are his.
Shiuli flower stories advent tune
The smell of Kumartulli spread,
Tell me, Durga has come,
Tell me, Durga has come”)
This song “Durga Elo” sung by Monali Thakur tells us about the welcoming spirit of people with the arrival of Ma Durga, which compels me to dance and enjoy.
The whole city from the darkest corner to shimmering stars decked up in gold, deep purple, burgundies, red, orange, browns, crimson, white and more vibrant colours to brighten up.
