The lady in purple visualised as a migrant worker (made of silicon) is smiling at the completion of her long journey on foot while others others follow. Back in the village a despondent mother wait for her children to come back. Pandal walls adorned with baatik portraits of the migrant workers. Durga Maa visualised as a village mother, with no accessories or astras.
Migrants’ hardships – theme of many Pujo pandals in West Bengal
