Preparations for Durga puja here in Geneva are underway.
Having been asked to help in designing the puja mantle this year,
I am excited about the possibilities!
This is a sneak peek into our decor elements, some of 'em,
we have handcrafted each piece from the scratch.
Hours of work but loads of fun.
We talk about everything from mouth-watering Bengali recipes
to the nuances of French grammar, me and a friend as we sit together with
the heavy-duty cut-fold-pleat-paste operation!!!!!
On the weekends, everybody else joins in.
It is this month-long team work that brings people together and
these are the memories that stay with us even after the puja is over.
The Durga Maa painting that I was working on all of last month is complete.
You may have seen the sketch in one of my previous post.
It is a bigger piece, 60cm x 80cm and I can't wait to take some snaps and post here.
It has been raining all of this week in Geneva and
I have to wait for a bright day and the correct light for my next post.
Next three weeks are going to be completely dedicated to the Durga Puja work,
but I will try to keep you updated with snaps from our team at work.
