Testing Ground [ Color Version ]

This year this was my second visit to Kumartuli during my stay of 2 weeks at Kolkata. Kumartuli is colorful and eventful almost always. There is a saying that goes like “we Hindus have 13 festivals to enjoy in 12 months”; and almost all of them need a separate kind of Idols and accessories. And Kumartuli is the one stop shop for all that.


This is a shoddy corner at Kumartulli; but probably most colorful. People test color level here; before spray painting.


I’ve posted both BW and color version of this image. Please let me know which one you like more.


Venue : Somewhere near Kumartuli, Kolkata [ Calcutta ], West Bengal, India
