This week, my friend Ajanta takes us to Kumartuli (the potters’ hub) and gives us a tour of the Ma Durga sculptures in straw and clay. Ajanta wrapped up the “Arrival of Goddess Durga – The Supreme Power – The Supreme Being …” with a moving story:
“I am into this profession since I lost my parents in the age of 10. There was no choice except taking this as a profession. Ami lekha-pora kortte parini, school jete parini. (I could not go to school to get educated.) True, this line of work may not make me a gentleman, but this is my daily bread …”- He says.
It’s fun to get connected with bloggers around the world. The connectivity gives us a great pleasure to learn to appreciate different culture, various stories, and personal travel experiences that helps us expand our horizon. Thank you so much for the wonderful post, Dear Ajanta! Looking forward to reading more stories and learn more about Indian culture from you. 🙂
