'Bengal'uru Part 2 (Arko performing at Jayamahal - II)

'Bengal'uru Part 2 (Arko performing at Jayamahal)


A tiny Kolkata in the heart of Jayamahal in Bangalore
celebrating Durga Puja.

Durga Puja has begun. I really enjoy the exuberance, energy
and positivity of the festival. It has more to do with how people
of Bengal celebrate it. A smorgasbord of emotions, cheerfulness and love.

I happened to be at Jayamahal Durga Puja festivity on 25th Sept 2009, below
are some of the pictures I took with captions.
