I have been fortunate in capturing some interesting candid moments of Bengali Durga Puja outside Bengal. In C R Park, Delhi, the most interesting aspects of the "Probasi" puja is the amalgamation of different cultures, language. A Durga Puja "Pandal" or premise becomes a milieu of multi-cultural and multi-linguistic diversity. Which may not be that much prominent in a Kolkata Puja. People take frenzy in bengali culture of tradition like "Dhunuchi dance", "Dhaaki-rhythm and dance" so much that they "fall in love with Bengal"! And that's why Probasi Pujas are so significant in spreading the good vibes of Bengali culture.
