Women-only team to make one of the city’s costliest Durga idols

Aditi Chakraborty is one of the most sought-after idol makers of Kolkata. Subhamita Dinda, on the other hand, is a debutante, though her husband Sanatan Dinda commands huge respect in the same circuit. In a first, these two women are putting together one of the costliest Durga puja idols and pandals this year. They claim to be the first women-only team in this male dominated profession. Now that’s a reason why Santoshpur Lake Palli Pujo must feature in your must-visits list this year.
Aditi, who is in charge of decorating the pandal, said, “We are trying to present tradition in a never-seen-before manner. Our theme is `Puja’ itself. We will be making use of many traditional items such as tambul dani and stitch-art that used to adorn the walls of homes in our childhood.”
