Creating history last year with the highest idol ever of over 80 feet could not provide joy to people for all the 5 days last year. After a stampede that led to some casualties as well, the pandal was ordered to be shut down. Moving ahead from the sad memory, this year, the Durga Puja Committee has geared up with renewed spirits and an even bigger theme. Keeping the authorities in the loop to ensure safety, artist Mintu Pal has worked with the theme “Hazar Haath”, which portrays the Goddess Durga as has been mentioned in the Chandi Path. The goddess here has 1,000 hands with which to kill 100 Asuras.
