This is the second segment of my documentation of diverse pairings during the annual Puja celebrations in Kolkata. While colour and vibrance lies at the heart of the festivities, black and white is largely in tune with the history and tradition of Kolkata and its ancient festival, often stripping away the layers of gloss and exposing the soul within.
The pujas as usual took Kolkata by storm. While most of Kolkata’s denizens visited the festivities in droves, many preferred more personal twosomes. In addition to the mandatory young couples these pujas saw a variety of diverse pairings exploring the sights and sounds, patiently observing the frenzied hustle and bustle, indulging in a bit of adda or simply carrying on with their everyday lives almost oblivious to the whirlwind of activity that gripped their city.
